Fakhreddine to Hadbi: This is Personal!
Tahar Hadbi and Mohammed Fakhreddine have agreed to face each other in one of the most anticipated bouts of the recently announced Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions fight card. The event, set to be the biggest MMA show ever in the Middle East, will pit three title fights for Brave Combat Federation, but Hadbi and Fakhreddine are looking to steal the show. And judging from their pre-fight trash talk, the bad blood will carry into the cage on fight night.

Even before the fight was made official, the two Welterweights went back and forth, with "Fast Hands" Hadbi taunting Fakhreddine's failure to make weight for Brave 8: The Rise of Champions, back in August. When "The Latest" signed on the dotted line, it was his turn to provoke his opponent. In an interview with Arabs MMA, Fakhreddine expressed his anger about his upcoming adversary's trash talk.

"Tahar Hadbi, you f... up very bad. I don't know where you come from, but where I come from, if you talk s... about someone, you are going to get f... up. November 17th is going to be personal", claimed Fakhreddine.

In response to the Lebanese phenom' words, Hadbi said that it wasn't his fault "The Latest" missed weight and said he was looking forward to making him pay for his words come fight night at Brave 9.

"It’s not my fault if you miss your weight if you miss your fight. I provoked you and it worked. In November I will be ready for you. I will come to Bahrain just for you (...) Just go train and don’t talk s... about France or Algeria. Shut the f.. up", exploded Hadbi.
