Tahoun Represents The Saracens in Style!

‘The Most Marketable Man in the Middle East’ Mahmoud ‘The Hitman’ Tahoun has enjoyed being included in some pretty exclusive circles of late, as the opportunity to share the mats with an elite BJJ black belt was swiftly followed by a personal invitation to Phoenix 5: Bangkok.

With a BJJ black belt lineage tracing back to the legendary Mitsuyo Maeda, MacDonald received his own black belt from veteran MMA favourite Marlon Sandro, on behalf of Leonardo Santos and Wagnney Fabiano of Nova Uniao. His tutelage and expertise were invaluable, as Tahoun stated: “He taught us many good techniques. He is a great grappler, and it was a fantastic learning experience!”

If that wasn’t enough, Tahoun was seen rubbing shoulders with the likes of the Founder, Owner and President of Phoenix Fighting Championship, Chahe Yerevanian (below), as he soaked in the sights and sounds of the world famous Rajadamnern stadium from Bangkok, Thailand. The spiritual home of Muay Thai, Phoenix FC had the honour of being only the second ever foreign promotion to hold an event within it’s hallowed walls.

At the event, Tahoun consorted with some of the very best fighters Muay Thai has to offer, including main event winner and Phoenix FC and WBC World Champion Panpayak Sitchefbuntham, the outstanding Muhammad Suhan, Superbank Rattanabandit, and more. Check out these awesome pictures taken from the event below:

Saracens MMA: A Weekend of Action!

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!
