Ibrahim will be part of the co-main event against the American JJ Ambrose (Top Team, Phuket Thailand) in a Trilogy after defeating the latter then again losing. So here comes the third to set things straight!
Also joining his team is an up and coming female fighter Christina Koranouh, along with Miled Slaiby one of the first Lebanese fighters to take part of Desert Force. After a long lay off, Sleiby plans to get back on the train yet little is known about the division he will compete it.
