Mohammad Fakhreddine went from frustration to elation in the space of two days. After being initially selected to be in the final five of the KHK World Championships, he was sad to only be selected as an alternate in the historical tournament. However, his fortunes changed when Malik Merad got injured and he officially stepped in for the one-night, four-men, open weight competition which will take place during BRAVE CF 29, on November 15th, in Bahrain.
Now, “The Latest” is set to take on Moise Rimbon in the first semifinal of the tournament and has promised to surprise everyone that counted him out during the selection of the fighters, which was made from hundreds of applications.
Born in Lebanon, and widely recognized as one of the pillars of Middle East mixed martial arts since its infancy, Fakhreddine will represent the region in the biggest night for MENA MMA.
Through his social media profiles, he has expressed his desire to succeed and has gone above and beyond to respond to all fans wishing him good luck. He has recently come back into title contention at BRAVE Combat Federation, with a 40-second destruction of Christofer Silva at BRAVE CF 27, in Abu Dhabi.
A little more than a month afterwards, he will embark on the greatest adventure of his professional career, as he will have the chance to win the first-ever KHK World Championships, which will hand the victor a US$ 100,000 check, plus the right to be the provisional holder of the KHK belt, a historical trophy, adorned with 6.2 kg of gold.
