The top-ranked Middle Eastern flyweight in the world, 25 year old Egyptian stand out Mohamed ‘The Executioner’ Gamal has the world at his feet. Having already notched up some incredibly slick submissions, this outstanding fighter has one of the best grappling games in the region.
An extremely strong-willed and tenacious competitor, who stunned dangerous Kuwait-based compatriot Peter Elsaedii to capture the AUFC Flyweight Championship back in October 2016, Gamal is fast becoming one of the most famous fighters in Egypt. “That was my best memory in mixed martial arts to date,” Gamal said of the victory over Elsaedii, “Everyone saw me as an underdog, but I proved them wrong.”
A product of Saracens MMA and long-time training partner of top-ranked Middle Eastern bantamweight Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress, Gamal is used to making people think twice. Describing himself as being very physically weak as a youngster, Gamal took up MMA as a form of self-defence, but it wasn’t long before Moha’s penchant for the sport became clear: now boasting a professional record of 8-0, Mohamed Gamal has re-calibrated his sights, and eyes a future as an integral part of not only Saracens MMA, but of the athletic community in Egypt.
“I want to be a fighter in the biggest organisations in the world. I want to represent my team, and I want fighters from all over the world to want to join us and hold their fight camps with us,” he said. “I also want to own my own gym, helping people in the same position I was chase their own dreams. I want my family to live an amazing life, and travel around the world learning different cultures.”
Lofty ambitions? With Gamal’s skill set, and the backing of the Saracens MMA community, it is our belief that it’s not a question of if, but when this will happen.
