Every fight fan wants to see people getting knocked out or beaten up, that’s the main reason a lot of MMA addicts still stick around and watch the sport. No? Well ok, some of them enjoy the techniques and the hype but deep inside, it’s the Alfa Male vibe that keeps them tuning in one show after the other, so let’s keep it real for now.
Desert Force 18 will be heading to Beirut next week [Monday August 17, 2015], and what does that mean? A truly Lebanese fight card that has some of the top names engraved on it.
Ramy Hamed is one of those persons that delivers when it comes to beat-ups. With an impressive Desert Force debut in which he battered the Spaniard Victor Monfort to his one of a kind Knockout out against Walid Akrouh, Hamed placed himself as of the most dreaded fighters in his division PERIOD.
In a stacked welterweight division crowned by the champ Mounir Lazzez , we would expect to see Hamed face one of the excelling fighters in his third appearance in the promotion. The Lebanese/Russian can thrust himself into a title fight with victory over any of the top four fighters; Tarek Suleiman, Mohammad Ghorabi, Mohammad Fakhreddine, Jarrah Al Selawi; yet that’s not the case this time.
His opponent is surely worth all the respect and will look to put on a big fight as he fights far away from home, but this match up doesn’t really seem to make sense in terms of title contention.
If the promotion is looking for the next challenger, look no further. Find your top 4 fighters, match them up and may the best man for the spot prove himself as the number one contender. Who wants it the most?
