Fakhreddine to Ottman: Defend vs. Al Selwady or vacate

Mohammed Fakhreddine simply launched a video addressing the potential dreamfight between his mates Abdul Kareem Al Selwady and undefeated Courageous Fight Federation light-weight champion Ottman Azaitar.

Al Selwady has expressed curiosity within the battle, however Ottman ignored the problem. Fakhreddine believes Selwady would have the higher hand resulting from his sturdy base in wrestling vs. the thrilling, brawling type of Ottman Azaitar. Azaitar’s final battle was at welterweight and there are grumblings that he’s the only Courageous CF champion who has but to defend the belt, and is avoiding main challenges like Geraldo ‘Luan Santana’ Coelho. The light-weight division is deep after latest signings together with Godofredo Pepey and Djamil Chan.

“I believe it is going to be a extremely good battle,” mentioned Fakhreddine. “With all my due respect, if that battle occurs I see Selwady profitable all the way in which. I like Ottman. He is a good man, an incredible fighter however I don’t discover any cause why he shouldn’t take that battle. He’s the champion. He has to defend his belt in some way to anyone who’s on high two or high three. And I consider Selwady is primary proper now behind the champion. He shall be champion very quickly if he faces Ottman. But when Ottman doesn’t take the battle, he should simply forfeit the belt. You can’t be a champion and never battle or not attempt to defend the belt. He fought in Morocco on the welterweight the place he ought to have fought light-weight. I believe Ottman should both take the battle or vacate the belt.”

Fakhreddine and Al-Selwady not too long ago shared a coaching camp at Fortis MMA in Dallas, Texas. Fakhreddine will make his return at Courageous 16 on September 21 in Abu Dhabi vs. the breakout star from Dagestan, Russia – Gadzhimusa Gaziev.
