Desert Force officials have officially announced the signing of three new fighters who will join the promotion effective immediately! The officials have stated that as of today and effective immediately, Rami Aziz, Jarjis Danho and Lawin Khalil Mustafa are Desert Force fighters. These guys are going to bring a lot of excitement to the featherweight, middleweight and heavyweight divisions!
Rami Aziz comes into the promotion riding a four fight win streak with a perfect 3-0 record in 2013. The Baghdad born fighter has previously competed as a featherweight in competitions in Finland and Sweden, the latter being where he calls home, specifically the GBG gym in Gothenburg that is run by Joakim Engberg. Like most youngsters, Rami started out by playing football. It wasn’t until he was 14 that he discovered Kung Fu and one thing lead to another and the inevitable series of events led to him to discover MMA in 2007. An exciting fighter, I for one cannot wait to see him in the cage at Desert Force
Jarjis “Man Mountain” Danho was born in Al-Malikiyah in Syria and found his way to MMA after dabbling in football and power lifting. He made his pro-debut in 2011 and has since gone on and defeated another two opponents to establish a 3-0 record. He trains out of the Hammers Team in Nurnberg, Germany where his sparring partners include fellow heavyweights Patrick Zoremba and Andre Braun. We reached out to Jarjis and he had the following to say “I am very happy about getting the opportunity to fight for Desert Force. They are putting on a great show on a big stage and have very enthusiastic and passionate fans. I will give my best to represent both Germany and my home country of Syria. Thank you very much for giving me the chance to show my skills to the Arab fans. Shukran!”
Lawin Khalil Mustafa joins Desert Force as a Middleweight competitor. Although he fought the majority of his career at light heavyweight, the Shaqlawa born brawler will be making the drop to Middle Weight where he hopes to impress. Mustafa has an impressive track record, amassing a 6-2 amateur record and a 1-1 pro record primarily in Scandinavia. He has recently moved to Dubai where he is a personal trainer and will look to make his debut soon in the Desert Force Octagon. Lawin might have actually made his debut during the Bahrain card as a result of an injury to another fighter, albeit his opponent did not agree to the late change.
