Fight Club Rush has built up several stars such as Tobias "Bad Intention" Harila and Andreas Gustafsson. Now pro debutants Ali Yazbeck (0-0) and Abbe Hussein (0-0) are set to leave the amateur leagues, facing off in hopes of paving the way for a successful pro career.
Yazbeck trains under famed UFC veteran Hamid "Akira" Corassani at Redline Training Center in Malmö. He has been brought up alongside the likes of undefeated PFL star Ali Taleb - who Yazbeck has been a main training partner of for years.
Yazbeck is a European Shooto champion and a BJJ purple belt with a well-rounded skill set. With clear talent and potential as well as an unbreakable resolve in the face of adversity, Yazbeck has been one of South Swedens best kept secrets for a long time.
Hussein is a product of the newly started KRAFT team in Stockholm, under the tutelage for former UFC fighter Nico Musoke. He was relatively unknown to the Swedish MMA scene until he burst into the spotlight at FCR 11 with a brutal KO of Ali Al-Jasim - a friend and training partner of Yazbecks.
With a storied background in Greco-Roman wrestling and having won the Swedish national wrestling championships Hussein has proven himself to be much more than a wrestler.
Young prospects like Yazbeck and Hussein could not have chosen a better platform to make their pro debuts.
