Here’s what Abe had to say to ArabsMMA about his future, and a potential fight on the Middle East MMA circuit:


It feels unreal, Alhamdulilah for everything going out there and beating a guy like that puts lots of confidence in me and my team at Detriot Jiu Jitsu Academy.

I’m looking to get something after Ramadan either for a belt here in Michigan or wherever right offer we get. Personally I would love to fight back home specially before getting on the big stage or even coming to the big stage later on.

With the continuously growing MMA scene in the Middle East, we’re certain it’s just a matter of time before the regional promotions put an eye on this new Lebanese prospect.
