Abu Dhabi, UAE – Ali Alnaeimi Vs Mohammad Yahya, the fight everyone was waiting for. The crowds got so loud over this one, and Naemi came in to a chorus of boos! Not very surprising after Naeimi’s strong video where he threatened to “break your face” in response to earlier statements from Yahya. These two and their fans have been trading all types of jibes online before the fight!
It was such a back and forth fight with both these guys fighting to the point where they’re gassed out and pushed it on fumes.
This fight was the second fight on the main card at Desert Force 13 which took place at FGB Arena in Abu Dhabi.
Alnaemi delivered an illegal knee to a grounded opponent in the first round and received a point deduction. He then again knocked Yahya down with a big right hand. However, Yahya refused to quit and was able to turn fortune in his favor in the second round, leaving Naemi unable to make it to the third.
There was technically no loser in the fight, but does Alnaeimi regret the trash talk?
