Yousef “Polvo” Hamad will be looking to bounce back into the “W” column

Despite losing his last fight in Desert Force in dramatic fashion (in the dying seconds of the 1st round), Polvo is still a formidable opponent and retains a strong following in the MMA community. Known for being a very fair and humble adversary, he will be looking to bounce back into the “W” column as fast as possible to better his current 3-1-0 professional record.

Prior to his championship fight, Yousef had previously beaten the Jordanian Mallick Quraan(Fight), Ali al Hady(Fight) and Daniel Hilal all within the opening five minutes of their respective fights. A match-up against Ahmad Ansari sounds promising and would also give Ansari the opportunity to bounce back against a top rated opponent. The more suitable and juicier match up though would be against the Shooto fighter Aziz Julaidan from Saudi Arabia.


Although his record is 1-1 in Desert Force, he shows a lot of promise anytime he steps into the octagon and was unfortunate to have the decision go against him in his loss against Mohammad Arti. Juleidan would also bring solid jiu jitsu skills with him and decent striking skills which would be unlike any other fighter Polvo has faced thus far. For Julaidan it would give him the opportunity to be put his name up there as one of the top contenders for Abdulkareem Al Selwady’s belt. With a win against Polvo, he would be 1 or maximum 2 fights away from a title fight.

  • Aziz Julaidan will be a good match up. Aziz has good standing as well as ground game. It’s gonna be a good test to Polvo’s chin and Aziz’s ground game.

  • Aziz has a better stand up game and good bjj background , polvo have reach advantage and more experience in bjj but it will be an interesting fight.. I would say ko aziz or arm bar 3rd round polvo
