Desert Force is back TONIGHT (Monday, April 28, 2014) for Desert Force "12" at Al-Hussein Youth City, Boxing Arena, Amman - Jordan.

Ahmed Saeb vs Saif Quandour

Expect some noise now. Next up we have Saif Quandour from Jordan making his Desert Force debut against the Iraqi brawler Ahmed Sa’eb!

Sa’eb comes out first. Predictably when you’re fighting a Jordanian in Amman your not going to make a lot of fans happy… Sa’eb gets a bit of a boo showering.

Quandor comes out and things get very, very loud! Wow! To add to the fan excitement level he is cornered by none other than fellow Jordanian Title holders Abdulkareem Al-Selwady and Hashem Arkhagha.. and Omar Toufouqa! Let’s see if he can make a good impression on his debut

Yves Lavigne the man for this one!

Round 1: Here we go. They touch gloves. Saif throws a few punches. He seems to be testing his range. He trows a nice right one that lands flush. Saeb throws a huge kick and lands!!! Wow! Saif trying to close the distance with punches but Saeb baking up nicely. A good counter right lands by Saeb. ANother high kick lands but Saif had his hands up.

THey trade punches. Saeb throwing some huge bombs. A big right lands by Saeb. ANother one. Ahmed doing the smart thing and retreating. Saif throws a nice combination. A couple of strikes by Saif land flush.

Low kick by AHmad lands. These Kyokushin guys really know their kicks. Saif closing the distance again with punches. They traded punches like crazy!!!! Each taking turns landing big ones! WOW!!!! I would had to be a judge on this one.

10 seconds left. Saif lands a nice combination! Wow!!!!

I gotta give that one to Saif. Just about. He was pushing the pace of this fight and controlled the cage more effectively. But that’s really the only difference between these two.

Round 2: Here we go. Saif comes out with a 1-2. Saeb leads in with punches but Saif does a good job of blocking. Saeb throws another one of those huge head kicks but Saif gets his hand in the way. Those look vicious. Low kick by Ahmed. ANother two land. Saif better start checking those soon. A big right lands by Saeb. Saif not as aggressive in this round as the last one. Big head kick lands by Saeb. Damn man… Saif cannot take too many of those even if they dont land.

Saif seems to be taking deep breaths. He dorps his hands and Saeb uses the chance to go for the kick. Big body punch lands by Saeb. He tries another head kick and follows it up with a hard left. Saif has not attempted any take downs so far… ALthough he has legit BJJ skills.

They trade a flurry of punches! Saeb landed more in that exchange though. Saeb gaining in confidence as the fight goes on. 10 seconds to go. They trade punches and haymakers. That’s it!!!

That one has to go to Sa’eb! 10-9

Round 3: They touch gloves. Saif really needs to watch out for those kicks. Saeb looks like he is pushing the pace in this one as well… High kick by Ahmad. Saif uses it to attempt a takedown but fails. Saif tries to stop the fight for a pause apparently as a result of an injury but Yves Lavigne waves them on. This is bad It seems Saif cant really walk. Saeb teeing off on him. He has him up against the cage and is throwing bombs. Saeb going after Saif’s right leg. It seems the right leg is completely gone :s Saif cant seem to put any weight on it. Man!!!! How is he staying in this one! Saif with his back to the cage and fighting off the cage. What amazing heart!!!

He has got two minutes to go here! He is even goading on Saeb asking him to come at him! Damn! Saif’s only chance is knock Saeb out as he tries to throw kicks! This is insane…. Holy crap. There is no way he is walking anytime soon! 20 seconds to go. Saif is done here. He doesn’t seem to have anything left in the gas tank. 10 seconds to go…. That’s it!

That’s a clear 10-9 to Saeb! Wow!!! Let’s see what the judges have to say about that.

The referees gives it to Ahmed Saeb by a unanimous decision!

  • A lot of typo errors , plus Trigue played against Mohammed Yahya (UAE) not Hamzeh Nafush !!

  • I meant Trigue played against Ahmed Al Bussairy,

    Mohammed Yahya played against Hamzeh .. Sorry

  • Does anyone have an idea how to watch this live? (GO LAWIN)

      • I tried going on MBC Action right now, but its not now. It says its at 11 pm (dubai time)


        • Oh, so i can’t watch it live? I can only watch it at 11?


  • @Yousef – of course there are a lot of typos . But we are cage side and typing as the action is happening so pardon the grammar mistakes. Its not like we can ask things to slow down a little bit while I type. If your willing to help though do come by.

  • Thank u Nassar, really appreciating ur efforts

    But did Trigui win by TKO or Guilatine chocke?

    • He won by referee stoppage officially :s it wasnt a submission but the referee decided that Hassan could not continue. The guillotine looked very, very tight though

  • we are waiting eagerly for the mountainous fighter, samourai guy, Lawin Khalil, with all wishes of victory!

  • GO LAWIN. Hope you win so you leave the UAE in a good and happy way. Sincerely, your client :D.

  • Thank u nassar for the proffisional and bueatiful writing style.i did expect elias will be kod but not that fast!

  • I think Desert Force has a lot of potential.

    The only problem that I can see is the way its all being put together. The commentary is poor, nothing technical about it at all. It sounds like a few fans discussing the fights.

    Also, the commentators talk about taking sides and who they think will win, they need to be neutral at all times…and only praise the fighters on shows of skill during the fight.

    The refereeing could also be better, for example, the Mohammad Abdulkareem vs Jarijs Danho should have been stopped way before it was, abdulkareem received numerous shots to the back of the head without Jarjis being warned, and when Abdulkareems mouth piece fell out he should have been warned on controlling his mouth piece.

    Other than that, I think the fighters are skilled…the facilities are great and the marketing is high quality.

    Hopefully we will see better commentary and more experts on staff back stage.

    Good Stuff overall though!
