Michael Aoun is gunning for a rematch! The Lebanese fighter (who has moved his trainings camps recently) is raring to avenge his defeat at the hands of Tarik Benaamimi who defeated him by way of guillotine during their tenure on the reality TV show Al Batal.
Benaamimi of course went on to reach the semi-finals, a place Aoun believes he could have got to had he fulfilled his own expectations.
I really need this rematch, I don’t care where and when but it has to happen. I want to show Tarek the real Michael Aoun . When we entered the cage he was expecting more of me and I will be back to show him what I am made of.
The fighters has taken steps outside the cage to ensure and has recently switched his training camps and now fights out of Tiger Muay Thai gym in Beirut under instructor Hasan Berjawi. He know trains with the likes of Mohamed Fakhreddine who is currently taking part of Al Academia Show on MBC action as the Coach for the Red Team and other high level lebanese strikers in his gym. He had also previously competed in the Beirut Fight Night event where he was victorious in his showing.
I personally, as Zahi the MMA fan not Zahi from ArabsMMA, would like to see this rematch happen! Aoun looked tremendous when I recently saw him and it would be great to see him put his skills to the test against Tarek’s Equipe Elite BJJ schooling.
