AUFC 16 from Heliopolis, Cairo took place last night, and saw the professional MMA debut of the highly promising protégé of Saracens MMA’s Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress, Omar Khaled.
Taking on the older and more experienced Mohamed Hesham, Khaled gave a great account of his ever-improving skill set through rounds one and two of a physically gruelling contest. Despite arguably winning both rounds in a three round fight, the AUFC judges would eventually score the bout a draw.
Saracens MMA could not be more proud of Omar, with his coaching team – consisting of Ahmed Faress, Mohamed ‘Smash’ Nour, and Al Hassan Abo Ali extremely proud of the performance. Expect much more to come from this Cairo-based starlet!
Also today, Islam ‘The Egyptian Zombie’ Reda will return to an old hunting ground, Evolution Fighting Championship, as he takes on Ahmed Mahmoud from Alexandria. Reda, a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, is one of the finest grapplers in the Saracens MMA team, and we would like to wish him the best of luck in today’s bout!
Don’t forget to check back for the result!
Saracens MMA Management is delighted to announce that top-ranked Middle Eastern bantamweight fighter Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress (14-2) has signed an exclusive multi-fight deal with Phoenix Fighting Championship.
Undoubtedly one of the most important MMA and Muay Thai organisations in the region, Lebanese-based Phoenix will continue to blaze a trail with the announcement of Phoenix FC 6 from Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. One of the focal bouts of this event will see Egyptian Faress, formerly a top contender in Brave Combat Federation, step up a weight class to face Algerian-Frenchman Chabane Chaibeddra (10-4, 1 NC) at 145 lbs.
Saracens MMA Management and Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress recognise Chaibeddra as a very tough and extremely worthy opponent, but remain confident of victory on the back of several multi-platform negotiations designed to improve the level and visibility of the sport of mixed martial arts in Egypt.
Phoenix FC 6 will take place on April 5, and will be Ahmed’s first fight on a five-fight, two-year deal.

In a video released via social media, Saracens Management’s own Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress called out Jordanian bantamweight Ali Al Qaisi, a Wushu stylist who competed in the 2017 World Championships from Kazan, Russia.
No doubt a clash between Faress, the top-ranked Egyptian and Middle Eastern bantamweight, and Al Qaisi, would make for fireworks at an upcoming Phoenix Fighting Championship event.
Translated from Arabic, Faress stated that:
“I have watched all Phoenix Fighting Championship bouts, especially in the 135lb division, and I want to challenge Ali Al Qaisi.”
“Ali, if you have real courage, and wish to face me, I will beat you.”
“Phoenix Fighting Championship, I will fight hard, and myself and Al Qaisi will set the bantamweight division on fire. Make this fight, and it will be a treat for Phoenix fans the world over!”

On February 2nd 2018, Egyptian bantamweight kingpin Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress (14-2) will compete under the Egyptian MMA Association (EMA) banner as he enters a four-man tournament in the veterans class, pitting his skills against the likes of UFC veteran Marcos ‘Vina’ Vinicius (24-11-1).
His first outing of the new year, the tournament from Sharm El Sheikh will be a big test of the Brave CF veteran’s skills, heart and stamina. It is, nonetheless, a challenge the Egyptian will relish as he looks to lay down an impressive marker in early 2018. With his sights set on competing as often as possible as he looks to build upon his already hugely impressive 14-2 record, Faress relishes the possibility of facing the likes of Vinicius, and in turn adding to his list of acclaimed conquests.
Having dispatched current UFC star Bharat Khandare of India via first round submission in his most recent bout, Faress recognises the importance of besting the biggest names possible as he strives to competing on the biggest stages in mixed martial arts. Victory here, and Faress will underline what has long been apparent to fans of Middle Eastern MMA: ‘The Prince’ is, without doubt, the number one bantamweight in the region.
The leading MMA agency in the Middle East, Saracens MMA Management was created by top-ranked bantamweight Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress in order to open doors for more of the most talented fighters in the Middle East and beyond.
With a dedicated team working hard behind the scenes, Saracens MMA Management is a gateway for fight promotions looking to sign the best and most marketable prospects the region has to offer.
