Manama, Bahrain – ArabsMMA (tasjeelclone.mystagingwebsite.com) was on scene and reporting live from today’s official Desert Force Bahrain on MBC Action fighter weigh-ins. The festivities took place at Virgin Megastore, City Mall, Manama, Bahrain, at 7:00 pm local time.
The fans went mildly crazy for the fighters as they came onto the stage. Among those weighing in were much-hyped featherweight headliners Abdul Kareem Al Selwady and Iraqi Hussein Salem who has agreed to fight Selwady on very short notice following Aziz Julaidan’s withdrawal due to injury. All fighters made weight expect for Gariel Tayeh who came in at 600g heavier than his opponent. Arti did not refuse to take the fight, but an agreement will be reached in order to play fair.
