KARACHI: July 30 was a day to remember for Pakistani Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fans as both Uloomi Kareem and Ahmed Mujtaba earned dominating wins over their respective opponents in their World Series of Fighting Global Championship bouts in Manila, Philippines.

Kareem's victory in particular was special as in India's Yadwinder Singh he was up against an opponent who enjoyed a two-inch size advantage. Yet, any advantage that Singh had soon evaporated as soon as the two fighters entered the cage.

The 25-year-old Kareem, fighting under Team Fight Fortress's banner, dominated the fight from start to finish to earn a unanimous 30-27, 30-27, 29-28 win.

Later on, Mujtaba faced local favourite Neil Larano and was even more spectacular, taking just one minute and eight seconds of the first round to finish the Filipino via an armbar triangle choke.
