‘The Prince’ Prepared to Fight Anyone

When news broke last week that Brave Combat Federation were looking for a replacement for injured bantamweight Arnold ‘Silverback’ Quero at Brave 9: Kingdom of Champions, Director of Brave Alejandro Soto wasn’t exactly besieged with offers to step in and fight talented Brazilian Felipe Efrain. As Soto stated on social media, “No one wants to fight this kid!”

One exception to that statement, however, was The MMA Vanguard’s Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress.

Fresh off a twelfth career submission win in Mumbai, India over popular native Bharat Khandare, Faress’ confidence continues to soar. Having spent several weeks training alongside fellow Egyptian ace Ahmed ‘The Butcher’ Amir in the Republic of Kuwait, Faress touched down in Thailand en route to Tiger Muay Thai late last week when news of the injury to Quero broke.

While much of the focus had, understandably, been on Amir’s upcoming bout with Swedish fighter Erik Carlsson at Brave 9, Faress was ready and willing to put his top-ranked status on the line – a sentiment he has since repeated.

“I was, and still am, ready to fight anyone,” Faress stated after news broke that a replacement had already been found for Efrain. “I want to fight, I feel great, I am training well, I am doing all the right things, and I know in my heart I will always be ready.”

Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress Wants to Teach Nawras Azbakh “Life Lesson”

Being the top-ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the Middle East, which Cairo-based bantamweight Ahmed “The Prince” Faress is according to Tapology, is not just an achievement – it’s a target for other fighters to aspire to. It was no surprise then, when undefeated Jordanian fighter Nawras Azbakh (6-0) became the latest fighter to take the opportunity to call out “The Prince”.

A fighter for Desert Force, Azbakh made the following comments about the Egyptian Brave CF ace:

“Ahmed Faress is ranked as the #1 bantamweight in the Middle East. I have nothing against this guy, I don’t even know him, but put me in the cage with him and I’ll make a highlight reel out of this and finish him however the fans want it. The whole ranking list on [Tapology] doesn’t make sense, especially [considering] the [fighters ranked] under Faress, also.”

Not one to take such comments lying down, Faress responded via arabsmma.com:

“Although his words have a lot of disdain and diminish my ability as a fighter, I understand the reasons behind them. Any person can feel envious or jealous of another who is better than him, and he’s frustrated about that. It’s okay, God created those feelings. There is nothing wrong with what he said. My ambition and potential go beyond a match with Nawras. However, I wouldn’t mind if Brave Combat Federation wants to make this fight happen. I also wouldn’t mind teaching him a useful life lesson.”

Nawras Azbakh, consider your challenge ACCEPTED!

The Prince Eyes Global Domination

The top-ranked bantamweight in the Middle East, Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress has his sights set on global domination! With an outstanding 14-2 record including no fewer than 12 first round finishes, Faress is hungry for even greater success as 2018 looms large on the horizon.

Having called out India’s Gurdarshan ‘Saint Lion’ Mangat in May, a fighter who trains with pound-for-pound great Demetrious Johnson, Faress is keen to show the world the kind of talent emerging from his native Egypt. Currently contracted to Brave CF out of Bahrain and the founder of the Saracens MMA team out of Cairo, Faress is well on the way to establishing himself as one of the most potent forces anywhere in the world at 135 lbs!
