Mohamed “Felx” Ali is unstoppable and Hucin Submits the Polish
Impressive performances from the Arab fighters at Saturday’s Cage Warriors Fight Night 8 event, which took place at Mirbeh Sports Hall in Al Fujairah, United Arab Emirates under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad Al SHarqi, Fujairah Crown Prince.
Highlighting the Main card, in the night’s co-feature, French Moroccan Faycal Hucin (9-3) earned a first-round submission win over a powerful Antoni Chmielewski (23-10) in the Middle weight division
Hucin was working his standup game in the opening minutes, but Chmielewski took him down on every possible occasion as he tried to attack.While Hucin scrambled up to open, he eventually settled for working from his back, where he caught his opponent with a quick triangle-choke attempt. The lock was there but the choke wasen’t tight enough at first , but Hucin adjusted his grip and kept the squeeze tight and eventually earned the tap at the 2:12 minutes in the opening stanza.
Mohamed “ Felx” Ali, the first ever Arab pro MMA fighter outclassed his opponent that night in UAE. After outstriking Sylvain potard and to a point defending every takedown attempt from the Judoka , Felx defeated Sylvain Potard via TKO (strikes) in the third round.
Porard struggled to find opportunities after constant takedown stuffing from Ali.Mohamed kept it close by taking advantage of frequent stand-ups to launch striking attacks from all angles .He was controlling the fight and dictating the pace thoughtout all three rounds. His stand up game is world class and in this bout he showed obvious improvement in defending takedowns.
With little to no support , this Egyptian warrior manages to improve his professional record and climb the ladder which he dreamed of climbing

Exciting amateur bouts in this Cage Warriors event in Al Fujairah, United Arab Emirates , giving the chance for Local and Regional fighters to compete and upgrade their level.
Fighting out of Team Black Cobra, Lebanon and under the supervision of General Secretary of LMMAC Hisham Boustani , Bachir Yammine (1-0-1) made his second entrance to the CWFC cage to face Amin Jlassi (1-1). Yammine managed to knockdown Jlassi and cut him badly above his eye in the second round and from that it was all down for the Tunisian. Bachir fought cautiously and secured a well deserved win.
The Source MMA always putting Jordan on the highest ground had three successful fighters grab the decision win showing advanced techinal skills. Yazan”Kavkazian”Janeb Def.Mohammed Khalifa from Egypt , Maybe its time for the Kavkazian to go pro ?
Also from Team Source Izzeddin Farhan Def.tunisian khaled Jemaa & Jarrah Hussein(3-0) put an end to Stephan Owens 6 win streak and goes pro after this bout.This Jordanian will be a big force in the welterweight division.
Moroccan Hicham Laghzali (2-0) earns his second KO win against the tough well rounded Walid Nessibe(4-1). Laghzali earned some high points in my book after this impressive win.
