Two Lebanese MMA Fighters Made it To The 2017 MMA Asian Championships Finals!

Imad Howayek and Alexander Chaddad have secured medals for Lebanon at The 2017 MMA Asian Championships by qualifying to the finals. Howayek defeated a fighter from Kazakhstan within the semi-final and gained by way of unanimous choice whereas Alexander Chaddad defeated his Indian opponent within the first minute of the primary spherical!

Lebanon’s MMA group has come a great distance ever because it was established and has been doing nice regionally and internationally. Final 12 months, Charbel Diab shocked the IMMAF Tremendous-Heavyweight division final week when he clinched the Gold Medal within the 265lb+ bracket and again in 2015, two Lebanese fighters reached the semi-finals on the World Championships.

Better of luck to the Lebanese group within the finals! Hope they’ll be capable of deliver again a gold medal this time!

PS: I’m undecided if MMA’s ban in Lebanon was ever applied.
