Saracens MMA were represented strongly on Kumite 1 League’s debut show from Mumbai, India, with Mahmoud ‘The Octopus’ Fawaz taking on former European and World IMMAF contender Hardeep Rai, while Mohamed ‘The Executioner’ Gamal faced off against unbeaten local talent Govind Ale.
With both fighters competing on foreign soil for the first time, Fawaz and Gamal put on strong performances despite the external pressure placed on them by the partisan atmosphere, showing good striking and landing some solid shots in front of the biggest crowd of their burgeoning careers. Make sure to keep a look out for these exceptional international talents in the future, as the pair take all learnings from their respective bouts into future encounters.

But that wasn’t all.
Hassancito ‘Rush’ AboAli, Ahmed ‘The Silencer’ Thabet, and up-and-coming prospect Marwan Gamal all competed at AUFC 19 from Cairo, Egypt, with great performances all round.
With AboAli scoring a thirty second rear naked choke submission victory over opponent Mohammed Ali, Ahmed Thabet cruising to a lop-sided decision victory over Ahmed Shoukry courtesy of his multi-levelled kickboxing offence, and Marwan Gamal putting on a really strong showing in his professional debut against Sayed Mohamed, the Saracens MMA team showed their unrivalled dominance on the Egyptian prize fighting circuit.
We can’t wait to see what’s next for all five of these great warriors, and will be bringing some BIG news in the immediate future for the rest of the Saracens team…
