Watch Brave Combat Federation’s latest trailer for the welterweight battle between Tahar Hadbi and Mohammad Fakhreddine.
The clip features Tahar Hadbi and Mohammed Fakhreddine who will be having a highly anticipated rematch at Brave 10: The Kingdom Rises hosted in Amman, Jordan on March 2 at the Boxing Arena at King Hussien Sports City.
The first clash between the welterweights ended up in a no-contest as Fakhreddine couldn’t continue the bout after suffering an accidental low blow. Hadbi has claimed that the low blow was a tactic implemented by Fakhreddine to shove points off from the opponents and to psychologically manipulate their game plan. Fakhreddine in turn was convinced that the illegal groin shots was intentional as he was leading during the first round of the first fight. The war of the words was much discussed in the MMA world.
“We understand that the bout is highly anticipated and the intensity of the rivalry itself demanded the promotion to beef up the security during the event. However we are proud that the entire region is frantically following one bout so closely. Such an enthusiasm had never occurred in the history of the sport in the Middle East.”, said Mohammed Shahid, President of Brave Combat Federation.
Brave 10: The Kingdom Rises will be the first event by the promotion in Jordan. The fight card features 24 fighters from 14 nations representing 18 gyms or fight teams and is the most diverse fight card ever hosted by Jordan. Both the fighters have previously fought in Jordan and have a huge fanbase to back them.
