Heavyweight Yousef Abu Shreekh Rumored For Desert Force KSA

Jordan’s heavy-weight monster rumored to join Desert Force


Rumor has it that Jordan’s heavy-weight monster is fighting this December when Desert Force Hits KSA !

Heavyweights always have a particular kind of allure. Maybe it’s the inner cave man in us, but there is rarely something as satisfying as watching two big guys trade leather.

Yousef Abu Shreekh (amateur record 3-1) might be joining Desert Force to fight in the promotion’s heavyweight division (120Kg) joining Mark Tanios, Jarjis Danho and the rest of these mountain like men!

With two out of his three wins coming by way of knockout, Abu Shreikh who is known to have extremely heavy hands.

Abu Shreikh trains at Intensiti Gym in Jordan, home of Jarrah Al Silawi, Izzedine Al Derbane and many more of the Top MMA fighters in Jordan and the Arab world. Abu Shreikh might be on a heavy disadvantage in this division, but he has already found 3 victories in that category (2 at Cage Warriors Fighting Championship and 1 at RFC2) and proves to be a power house every time he competes.

Abu Shreekh might be present on the Desert Force 14 fight card in Saudi Arabia, but little is known about who he might face!

Nassar surely has the answers for this one! What would make the most sense is a fight against Jarjis Danho who will be glad to welcome Abu Shreekh to the promotion.

In a previous interview with ArabsMMA, Yousef mentioned that he wants to fight Mark Tanios, and the latter refused! Well here’s a chance of a lifetime for these 2 to meet in the Desert Force cage where only one fighter will leave victorious.
