Saad Awad Fights for the Vape Fam at Bellator 193!
2018 is off and running, and the new year is already showing incredible potential as the MMA season enters its peak stretch of competitive events. And with unified pleasure, Team Vaporfi and Bellator MMA are proud to bring you another fight night of epic proportions at Bellator 193!
This time, the Penchanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California takes center stage Friday, January 26th with a four-bout main card. This event will include a fight featuring Saad ” Assassin” Awad, who enters the cage for Team VaporFi and he’s ready to FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO VAPE! All the amazing action of this premier mixed martial arts competition will be televised live on the all-new Paramount Network (formerly Spike TV), starting at 9pm EST, as Bellator and Team VaporFi continue their efforts to bring top-tier fighting talent face-to-face for the world to witness.
In keeping with a long-established collaboration that has helped to cultivate some of the most highly-touted MMA athletes out there, the efforts taken to achieve such a unique and effective alliance has been nothing short of remarkable. Even more extraordinary is the overwhelming success of the VaporFi/ Bellator partnership. Both rebellious endeavors, their rise to prominence has endured intense opposition en route to their individual successes. Team VaporFi MMA celebrates this achievement, demonstrating the tenacity and resilience necessary to accomplish your goals, regardless of what it takes to make it happen.
For Team VaporFi’s part, success within professional mixed martial arts comes by way of sponsoring athletes who embody the commitment and determination to win. Saad Awad certainly has that pedigree and knows Bellator 193 is his opportunity to further his status as an elite MMA fighter when he faces a formidable challenge in J.J. Ambrose.
An intense and skilled fighter in the octagon, Saad Awad, better known as the “Assassin,” lives up to the nickname he’s rightfully earned. The 34-year-old San Bernardino, California native of Palestinian and Brazilian descent joined Bellator in 2009. Since that time, he has enjoyed garnering a reputation as a quick striking competitor who matches well against fighters of virtually any style or discipline. Overall, he has amassed a 21-9 record in the lightweight division with 9 of his victories scored by way of KO/ TKO. Riding on back-to-back wins at Bellator 178 and 186 by unanimous decision and a 1st round TKO respectively, Awad has shown both the ability to end contests quickly as well as go the distance to emerge victorious. He looks to continue his recent success streak and further his resume towards a shot at the lightweight title with a convincing win this Friday night in Temecula.
Awaiting the challenge is J.J. “Superman” Ambrose who is more than happy to enter the cage in the SoCal showdown. Ambrose, 30, is also a native from Lakewood, California, so a little cross-county clash may be in the works when he faces Awad at Bellator 193. An accomplished MMA specialist in his own right, “Superman” has a career record of 28-7 with 6 KO/ TKOs and is currently on an impressive 5-match win streak dating back to May of 2016. A serious threat who also has his eyes set on the opportunity awaiting with the lightweight crown, the stakes only continue to build for both J.J. Ambrose and Saad Awad until the two meet at the Pechanga Resort and Casino.
With less than month logged in 2018, Bellator 193 rides on the heels last weekend’s display of incredible action at Bellator 192. We know it’s going to be a wild night of MMA action, so tune in and support Team VaporFi as we FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO VAPE!
