Hassancito Abo Ali Places Third at 2018 African Professional Muay Thai Championship!

SaracensMMA.com is delighted to share a great moment for elite MMA and Muay Thai fighter Hassancito Abo Ali, who recently competed at the first ever African Professional Muay Thai Championship and finished in third place.

Abo Ali collected his bronze medal and certificate at the AUFC Academy in Cairo, Egypt, and Saracens captain Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress was there to congratulate him after the ceremony.

Faress, who cornered Abo Ali on the night of the fights (below), underlined his admiration for Abo Ali: “Hassancito fought superbly – it’s my opinion that Abo Ali did enough on the night to progress beyond the semi finals, but it wasn’t to be.”

The judges instead scored the fight in favour of his opponent from Cote d’Ivoire, Mohamed Doumbia, a result Hassancito accepted with good grace. Next time, SaracensMMA.com is confident Hassancito will bring back nothing but the gold medal!

Saracens MMA: Being the Best Isn’t an Opinion; It’s a FACT!

Some fighters love to boast.

Some managers, too.

After all, hype builds intrigue, and intrigue attracts fans – and fans are the key to the success of any sport!

It’s basic math, and it’s the reason why hyperbole exists at every turn in the fight industry. While many claims can be taken with a pinch of salt, Saracens MMA is sincere when we state that we are the biggest and best management agency in the Middle East. We are earnest when we declare we have the best fighters in the region. And we are proud of those assertions because we have the data to prove it!

We have the #1 flyweight in the Middle East!

We have the #1 flyweight, bantamweight, and light heavyweight in Egypt!

We have the #2 lightweight in Egypt!

We have THREE top five fighters in their respective division in the Middle East (four in the top ten, and five in the top fifteen)!

And what’s more, we have youth on our side!

Considering investing in Middle Eastern MMA? Thinking of hiring fighters from the region? Then why look elsewhere?

We are Saracens MMA, and we are the very best in the region – what’s more, we’re going global!

A New Dynasty

AhmedCoach

Remarkably, the unrivalled success of Egypt’s foremost international MMA talent, top-ranking bantamweight Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress, is not limited to his exploits within the cage. While Faress has rattled off an incredible 14 finishes from 14 career victories, including no fewer than 12 submission wins (ten of those in the first round), Faress is also a crucial figure on the Middle Eastern MMA scene at large.

While besting the likes of UFC veteran Bharat Khandare, who will compete at the mouth-watering upcoming UFC 227: Dillashaw vs Garbrandt 2 event, as well as top-ranking Egyptian nationals Hassan ‘The Viper’ Mandour and Ahmed ‘The Silencer’ Thabet certainly helped establish Faress as one of the most important figures in Egyptian martial arts history, it is his ongoing work outside the cage that impresses further.

Not content with being the winningest fighter to hail from his homeland, ‘The Prince’ is looking for something greater; a long-last legacy.

For a man whose coaching duties are seemingly unending, and his responsibilities as captain of Saracens MMA require absolute dedication to his craft on all levels, helping to build the sport from the ground up is arguably his most challenging task. And it’s one Faress embraces with a fervour.

While grass roots MMA is something very dear to Ahmed’s heart, and encouraging youngsters to undertake a healthy lifestyle, gain self-confidence, strive for continuous self-improvement, and understand true focus, morals and values are all aspects of the sport Faress relishes, there remains a need for new and innovative ways to take the most promising students to the next level.

Hence, ‘The Royal Dynasty’.

Hand-picking three students to coach in a more intensive and focussed MMA and grappling team, SaracensMMA.com is honoured to announce that Marwan Gamal, Marwan El Masry, and Omar Khaled will comprise the first ever Dynasty team. As each great historic Egyptian monarch would have wished to pass his wisdom and learnings to his kind, so ‘The Prince’ will look to bestow these young men with even more of his time and effort in order to bring through the next generation of Egyptian martial artists.

We are excited to see how far the Dynasty team can go, and cannot wait to see Khaled (left, in green), Gamal (centre, in black), and El Masry (right, in pink) in action!

The Prince Returns, Faces Al Boussairy of Kuwait at Phoenix 9: Dubai!

On Sunday evening, Phoenix FC President Chahe Yerevanian broke the news Saracens MMA fans have been waiting for – the return of Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress!

In his anticipated debut fight for the organisation, Cairo, Egypt’s Faress will look to wow the crowd in Dubai, UAE, and continue his hot streak of 14 finishes from 14 victories. His opponent? Kuwaiti national and six-time Desert Force veteran, Ahmad ‘Hitman’ Al Boussairy.

Faress will be looking to make up for lost time following an injury forced him out of a scheduled bout with French-Algerian featherweight Chabane Chaibeddra – so former lightweight Al Boussairy can expect to have his hands full against a hyper-motivated ‘Prince’ Faress.

Five years Faress’ senior, Al Boussairy was a 2013 Desert Force Lightweight Grand Prix finalist, where he fell at the last hurdle against then-undefeated Jordanian Haider ‘Gardena’ Rasheed. But while Al Boussairy represents an intriguing test for Faress, it’s no surprise to see the 14-2 ace in confident mood.

Faress told SaracensMMA.com: “I know Al Boussairy from Desert Force. He is a very good, humble fighter, and is famous as one of the first Gulf fighters. He has a good history in martial arts, and is beloved in Kuwait. I have a lot of respect for his personality, but I guarantee I will get through him.”
