SaracensMMA.com is delighted to announce that Team Quest Thailand-based featherweight Amr ‘The Falcon’ Maher was able to secure victory in his Predator Fight Series debut in the Philippines, clinching the Predator FS Featherweight title in the process.
Opponent Juvanie Bacus, a native Filipino fighter, had the support of fight fans within the Galleria, Home of Rock Marikina, but found himself overwhelmed by Maher, who fought superbly from the front foot en route to a first round rear naked choke submission victory. Subsequently Amr was awarded his first Championship belt on Asian soil – and it’s one we believe will be the first of many!
Now fully acclimatised to competing in foreign climes, the Egyptian ace will look to piece together a fearsome winning streak as he seeks to gain yet further momentum. A fighter who deserves to be on the radar of every major promotion on the continent, ‘The Falcon’ not only represented head coach Dylan Fussell superbly, but his homeland and his team, Saracens MMA.
Congratulations Amr! Go get ’em, champ!
SaracensMMA.com is proud to announce that Team Quest Thailand-based stand out Amr ‘The Falcon’ Maher will headline Predator Fight Series 6 from Marikina City, Philippines!
Taking on 4-3 Filipino fighter Juvanie Bacus in the main event, Amr will once again represent Saracens MMA at short notice, with the fight scheduled for just over a week’s time on July 20. With his sights set on claiming the Predator FS Featherweight title, ‘The Falcon’ sees this is as a great opportunity to further enhance his reputation in Asia.
“I’ll get past this guy,” Amr told SaracensMMA.com, “I’ll win the title and then I’ll look to conquer more promotions in the region. I’ve felt great in training lately too, so no issues about the short preparation time – I’ll be ready!”
There is no doubt Maher will look to add a sixth career finish to his résumé, building on victories in Thailand and his homeland of Egypt – and in doing so will hope to stamp his mark on yet another new nation!
Filipino fight fans, prepare to be entertained by one of the best in the sport!
