Desert Force 14 event was by far one of the most stirring events through desert force history, with most of the finishes coming by way of submissions, and a title fight ending with a brisk KO by Aziz Julaidan. That is not to mention the entertaining debutants who showcased some great skills on undercard as well.
Desert Force has been through a rough year in terms of injuries to key fighters on major cards.
The company’s debut show in KSA had the perfect line-up, as welterweight champion Aniss Al Hajjajy was set to defend his title against Mohammad Ghorabi. But Ghorabi had to pull out of the fight due to a last minute staph infection.
In an interview with ArabsMMA’s Zahi Ephrem, the former welterweight champ Anis AL Hajjajy announced that he will give up his shield and drop to light weight, his preferred weight class and so he did. He is now set to face Gabriel Tayeh in Desert Force 15 in a first of its kind ‘black belts’ fight in Desert Force.
Now let’s get back to business! The welterweight title is vacant, and two of the best pound for pound strikers in Desert Force are hungry to snatch it. The undefeated Ghorabi is now fully recovered after his infection and is hungrier than ever to grab this shield.
Not so surprising, but he is not the only person who is after this belt. Welterweight phenom Mounir Lazzez was next in line for a title shot and what better timing for this epic fight to happen! No matter which way you calculate this equation, this vacant spot will surely fit one of these two. Few may disagree on this!
Ghorabi dismantled Bechir Majri in his latest fight proving once again that he is here to stay. Lazzez on the other hand has had two consecutive highlight reel head kick knockouts that speak for themselves.
When this fight will happen, one of these warriors will remain undefeated and will be crowned as the undisputed Desert Force welterweight champion! And in my opinion, the winner between Ghorabi and Lazzez will be the baddest man to step foot in Desert Force Cage. Period.
