Kuwait’s first and only international-level MMA promotion, Wawan Fighting Championship has announced that Wawan FC 18 will feature an epic bout between two of MMA’s finest free agents.
Saracens MMA star and founder of Cairo’s Black Bulls team, Alaa ‘Thor’ Mansour, will lock horns with one of the sport’s most prolific and experienced fighters in J.J. ‘Superman’ Ambrose at Wawan FC 18: Thor vs Superman.
Ambrose, an exponent of Phuket Top Team, boasts a stellar 28-8 (2 NC) record accounting for no fewer than 16 opponents by way of submission – 15 of those by way of a variety of chokeholds. An Affliction, Bellator, Pancrase and The Ultimate Fighter veteran, Ambrose has an extraordinary résumé – but has met few fighters with the vicious KO power of ‘Thor’ Mansour!
The holder of the fastest ever KO in Jordanian MMA promotion Desert Force Championship’s history, Alaa has laid waste to all and sundry, compiling an impressive 6-1 MMA mark alongside a still-perfect 11-0 record in Muay Thai. Having attracted interest from Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship in the United States, as well as from promotions as far afield as Chinese Taipei, Mansour is undoubtedly one of the hottest properties in the sport today. He knows a win over Ambrose will propel his career to the next level, and will be seeking to stop ‘Superman’ in his tracks with the vicious ‘Thor’ hammer!
“I believe in one thing,” Alaa told SaracensMMA.com as news of the fight broke, “if you want to be a great person you must achieve great things. That’s what I’m always trying to do, alongside my brothers at Saracens MMA and Black Bulls. I dream big, and I’m not afraid to fight anyone in the world!”
The man they call ‘Thor’ added: “Ambrose may have been on TUF, but he hasn’t faced any ‘TUF’ shots – he’ll know exactly what I mean the second I touch him!”
