After the daunting performance that Mohammad Karaki delivered at Phoenix 4, knocking his opponent out in a hellish elbow that he landed from mount position in a fight that saw virtually no competition between him and Alaa Mansour. You would think that after a performance like that, Karaki won’t be getting called out by anyone anytime soon, right?
Well, it turns out that the newly crowned Phoenix FC light-heavyweight champion, Moise Rimbon, wants to have a piece of the former Desert Force two division champ, Mohammad Karaki.
In a recent post that Rimbon shared on his Instagram account Rimbon did not hold anything back, calling Karaki a chicken and asking Phoenix Fighting Championship management to set up a fight between the two happen. A super fight no doubt, but is Rimbon ready to drop down to middleweight for this type of action?
“Don’t hide you chicken give it to me… #phoenixmma @louai_kiblawi @teamnogueriadubai I won’t eat it all, I will split the bones… @chaheyerevanian”
Good to know that Rimbon is willing to share because that’s a huge undefeated “chicken” that he’s after, whom, might I add, just got the Knock Out of the Night award at Phoenix FC 4 in one of the scariest KO finishes that we’ve ever seen inside a Mixed Martial Arts Cage or any other combat sport for that matter.
Thus far, Rimbon has had 3 appearances at Phoenix Fighting Championship, grabbing the victory in every outing. An MMA veteran and high level champion with a record of 25-11-3, Rimbon has faced legends such as Alistair Overeem and Antonio Rogerio Nogueria, just a couple names from a huge list of opponents.
Does Karaki get a direct shot at the Phoenix FC light-heavyweight champion after being called out? Will Karaki take the fight? Would he rather remain competing at the middleweight division? What about the fight that Mr. Chahe Yerevanian promised to the winner of the Ibrahim El Sawi vs Tarek Suleiman fight winner?
There’s a lot of pending questions that need to be answered to unravel what’s going to be happening next. What’s for sure is that there’s going to be some considerable follow up noise regarding this issued challenge.
