Bechir “Shinobi” Majri (4-3) is returning to the cage… and it’s going to be big. Take his word for it! The Tunisian who suffered his second straight loss will make his comeback at Cedar Fighting Championship’s next event in Beirut, the fight is yet to be announced. Majri hasn’t fought in more than two years. As he says, injury has kept him sidelined for this long.
“I am returning after a long battle with injury as I have been suffering from nerve damage spreading to my arm (Cervical Radiculopathy).”
He last stepped into the cage as a late replacement for Aniss Al Hajjajy at Desert Force 12. Back then, he saved the event and came face to face with the notorious Mohammad Ghorabi when no one dared to do so, losing via TKO stoppage. Majri has now left the loss behind him and seems ready to make a huge comeback.
“There will be war next time I step into the cage! I am back stronger than ever before. It will be big!”
The Tunisian looks determined to turn heads in his return. As seen on his instagram account, Majri has recently set off to a training camp in Thailand, greasing his skills with the best coaches and fighters.
“I am currently on a training camp in Thailand. Everything here makes up a perfect training environment.”
“I have been training with Muay Thai legend Jean Charles Skarbowsky who trains Georges Saint Pierre. My Muay Thai skills have completely transformed.”
“I am also training with Team Skarbowsky coach Mohamed Yamani, who is world Muay Thai champion in Thailand.”
“What’s for certain is that I will be back in the cage very soon, and I hope to please the fans who have always supported me. “
Nevertheless, Majri admits that a lot has changed on the Arab MMA scene since he pulled out. As fighters have evolved to a totally different level, now, it’s up to him to make himself known again.
“I am not the crowd favorite, but I am very confident of the effort and work that I’ve put. ”
