Desert Force 13 – Fakhreddine Victorious in His Welterweight Debut


UAE, Abu Dhabi – Mohammad Fakhreddine emerged from this fight the winner against Georges Eid at his 77 KG welterweight debut.

This fight was the co-main event at Desert Force 13 which took place at FGB Arena in Abu Dhabi.

Georges Eid had taken the fight on 9 day notice and looked solid against Fakhreddine. Late in the second round, however, Fakhreddine mounted Eid and delivered a series of punches with the referee stopping the fight only one or two seconds before the round ended. Yet, the stoppage didn’t come without controversy.

To make things worse, Fakhreddine finished the round limping back to his corner. Eid and his corner protested inside the cage to the decision. Doubtlessly, Eid has huge heart and wanted to carry on with the fight no matter what.

Still, many had a legitimate argument claiming that Fakhreddine earned the win with a fair and correct stoppage from the referee because Eid was not really making a lot of movement or effort to protect himself. What do you guy’s think?
