Mohamed “L’Ambiance" Said Maalem receives invaluable assistance from a mixed martial artist who has a history with arch-nemesis and middleweight kingpin Mohammad “The Latest” Fakhreddine as they collide for the vacant BRAVE CF Lightweight World Championship on Friday, March 11.
Both men are set to lock horns in the co-main event of BRAVE CF 57, which takes place at the Khalifa Sports City Arena in Isa Town, Bahrain.
Said Maalem has acquired the services of compatriot and seasoned veteran Tahar Hadbi, who accepts as one of his cornermen on fight night.
Hadbi is no stranger to Fakhreddine as the two went to war on two occasions under the banner of the Bahrain-based outfit—with the first encounter ending via no contest and then the Algerian winning the second meeting by second-round stoppage.
With Hadbi working in the corner of Said Maalem, it could be a bane to Fakhreddine as the Lebanese hard-hitter seeks to have a definitive ending in the rivalry he has figured in with “L’Ambiance” as well as accomplishing the feat of becoming the first athlete in BRAVE CF history to hold two World Titles at the same time.
