Expect the fans to get loud here. Mohammad Yahya vs Ali Al Naemi is up next! Naemi came out with a very strong video where he threatened to “break your face” in response to earlier comments from Yahya.

Ali on top and throwing bombs! Yahya needs to grind this one out but with over two minutes this is going to get tricky. They scramble and Ali catches Yahya with a knee whilst his hand was still on the ground!!! Yves calls a stop to the action.
Yahya’s is bleeding out of his mouth and down his chest. He is up! He is good to continue it seems although his legs look a bit shaky underneath him.
Time to go again. Round 1 continues. THey look like they want to touch gloves but decide not to. They close the distance but Naemi catches Yahya with a huuuuuuuge blow that drops him! Wow!!!
