RE­SULT: Bashir Ahmad wins by heel hook sub­mis­sion

Pak­istani freestylist Bashir Ahmad and Egypt’s Mah­moud Mo­hamed, a kickboxer and wrestler, opened the night’s mixed mar­tial arts card in a short-lived bout. Mo­hamed closed the gap to pull Ahmed to the ground in a head­lock while fend­ing off punches, but the nim­ble Ahmed, who en­tered the bout with a 3-3 record, flipped over his op­po­nent. Us­ing his legs to cre­ate sep­a­ra­tion and lock in a heel hook for a con­vinc­ing sub­mis­sion vic­tory, Ahmad won in less than three min­utes and drew cheers of glee from the crowd.
