Al Qahtani wins via TKO Round 2 at Inaugural PFL MENA Main Event

The 24 year old Saudi Arabian fighter, delivered in emphatic fashion last night with his 2nd round TKO/ verbal submission win against his opponent Yazeed Hasanain in Riyadh.

Abdullah was aggressive in his forward pressure and used multiple forms of attack in this brief affair. Clinching, takedowns, punches and kicks; it was clear that Al Qahtani was looking to impress in his first time headline show.

In the end; the pressure and pace that Abdullah was imposing on the 3-0 Jordanian fighter was too much, and the referee would wave the bout off at the end of round 2 due to TKO/verbal submission from his opponent.

Many were impressed with the fighters tenacity, aggression and killer instinct and more eyeballs have certainly shifted attention towards the young fighter after this event as well.

The Saudi fighter has now progressed to the semi-finals of the PFL Middle East and North Africa tournament with his dominant win yesterday, and this begs the question, is the first step to having a global superstar from the MENA region? All the crew at Arabs MMA will be watching the PFL Mena Tournament with keen eyes and optimistically hoping this is the case.
