A lightweight bout between Bandar Al Saadoun and Michael Aoun is the latest addition to March’s Desert Force lineup. Desert Force will be looking for their second successful event on KSA soil!
Desert Force 16 takes place March 23 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The event airs Live on MBC Action following early prelims.
Bandar Alsaadon is a name that many of the Desert Force and local regional mixed martial arts fans know very, very well. A previous fighter and cast member on the Desert Force Al Academiya Season 1 program aired on MBC Action, the light weight, Alsaadon, made his way to the semi-finals before losing his fight to Elie El Rayess by disqualification.
Though having a very fun and friendly personality, mixed martial arts fans know that Alsaadon flips once he steps into the cage. An entertaining fighter, Alsaadon is perhaps a little bit too entertaining, with most of his bouts ending in a drama over some illegal technique that Alsaadon performs, the most infamous of which is the bite!
Yes, Alsaadon has bit not only Ali Alhadi to make his way to the Al Academiya semi-finals, but also bit Elie El Rayess in addition to having illegally pushed his finger on Elie El Rayess’ throat leaving Elie unable to continue the bout due to an internal bleeding and costing him his fight by way of dq. Not only that, but Alsaadon went again to be cast on Al Batal Season 2 as a light weight, losing the bout by TKO after a good performance, but a more than few mishaps.
Be that as it may, Alsaadon is surely someone to watch. He surely has the heart of a fighter, is super aggressive and has talent both standing and on the ground. Coaches always report that Alsaadon is a very promising prospect if he learns to control himself while in action.
Desert Force 16 will witness a bout between Bandar Alsaadoun from Saudi Arabia vs Michael Aoun from Lebanon. Like Alsaadoun, Aoun will also be making his professional fight debut under the Desert Force banner. Having had some successful amateur mixed martial arts fights, but a not so successful one as part of the welterweight cast of Al Batal Season 1,Aoun has grown and developed to become a well-rounded fighter training under Tiger Muay Thai Lebanon and a good addition to the Desert Force lightweight 70 KG division.
This fight is one to keep an eye on as we see both these fresh fighters make their Desert Force lightweight debut with a lot of potential ahead for both of them.
