Some of the paint might have come off the Haider Rasheed fanfare after his last fight with some fans questioning whether he was correctly awarded a decision victory over Mohammed Arti. Haider came out with a vengeance this time eager not to let the fight go the distance and settle this discussion once and for all.
Al Boussairy started well enough but made one crucial mistake when he lead with a kick without setting it up with strikes first. Haider capitalized on that, closed the distance and before you could say “wherethehelldidiparkmycar” had taken the Kuwaiti fighter to the ground. He quickly was in full mount from where he switched to take Ahmad’s back and submitted the fighter by rear naked choke.
A solid performance by Haider, who was struggling with injuries prior to this championship fight.Boussairy will possibly be slightly disappointed with his own performance but rest assured, this guy will be back.
