Saracens MMA is proud to announce that Alaa ‘Thor’ Mansour will make his Portuguese and European MMA debut at AFL 18 from Lisbon, Portugal!
Alaa, the captain of the Black Bulls team and head coach at SBA (Saracens & Black Bulls Academy), will face off against M-1 Global and Superior FC alumni Aires Benrois, a seven-year veteran of the professional ranks. Alaa, stepping in at short notice for former UFC fighter and long-time BJJ black belt Igor Araujo, will look to build on a fearsome résumé that already accounts for a devastating tear through the ranks of Egyptian Fighting Championship and Desert Force MMA.
Most famous for his 9-second KO victory over Abdul Rahman Dridi at Desert Force 22, Alaa no doubt sees his Ansgar Fighting League debut as a huge opportunity to stamp his mark on a new territory. With his sights set on a successful run in Europe’s esteemed MMA scene, ‘Thor’ Mansour fans can look forward to many exciting, high profile clashes featuring this heavy-hitting Cairo native!
This is just the beginning…
