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!


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!


Ahmed Faress Joins Phoenix FC; Faces Chabane Chaibeddra April 5



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.
