Abu Dhabi – Mohammad Yahya and Ahmed Al Bossairy met in a bout that many expected could go either way. Yet something Yahya has been better at is coming back from bad situations and again he did.
After almost catching Mohammad with an armbar, Al Bossairy was on the losing end, falling to a TKO from Yahya (3-0 Desert Force ) in the first round.
The lightweight bout was the main event fight at Desert Force 15 which took place FGB Arena in Abu Dhabi. It aired live on MBC action following prelims.
Finishing his fight via first round TKO, Mohammad Yahya’s bout wasn’t easy especially since Al Boussairy seemingly had him in a tight armbar. Not only did Yahya manage to escape, but he kept his exposure, moved to full mount and landed the bombs that got him the stoppage. Yahya, as usual, was calm through out the fight and requested a title shot immediately after.
The question remains though, will Desert Force grant him a shot against the current lightweight champion Tarek Hamdi or will he face another fighter that also rides a 3 win streak in the promotion.
