PAK MMA FA 2 Results: Bragging rights for Pakistan as Waqar Umar wins big in main event

Pakistan’s PAK MMA Fighting Alliance held its second installment last weekend, putting together a fight card that was filled with premier Afghanistan vs. Pakistan match-ups.

Afghanistan towered above their counterparts at PAK MMA FA’s inaugural event, going 6-0 on the night and stealing the bragging rights for their country.

But the promotion’s founder and CEO, Bashir Ahmad, later stated that the majority of the match-ups on the card were intended to be amateur bouts, and found out that the Afghan fighters weren’t in fact amateurs at all, with years of wrestling and striking experiences under their belt.

With that, the ONE FC combatant acknowledged the previous mistakes made, promising fair and explosive match-ups in their second event this time around.

Gyms that participated in the event included Synergy MMA Academy, Team Fight Fortress and Pakido GK among others.

The event consisted of both amateur and professional MMA match-ups on a nine bout fight card, headlined by scintillating clash between Waqar Umar (3-0) and  Nangyalai Nikzad (0-1) and co-headlined by Uloomi Kareem (2-2) vs. Mujtaba Yousofi (1-0).

After a fairly eventful first stanza, it was Yousofi who drew first blood in the second frame when he clocked Kareem with a barrage of strikes, forcing the Pakistani to crumble. Yousofi went in for the kill and after a series of unanswered punches, the referee was forced to intervene and stop the contest.

There was then a huge chip on Umar’s shoulder to deliver in the main event, following his compatriot’s setback. And he duly delivered as a quick fracas on the canvas allowed Umar to sink in a Rear-Naked Choke, forcing his opponent, Nikzad, to tap.

Needless to say, the Pakistanis were the ones left celebrating triumphantly.

Check out the results of the professional bouts below:

  • Waqar Umar def. Nangyalai Nikzad via Submission (Rear-Naked Choke) at 2:33 of Round 1
  • Mujtaba Yousofi def. Uloomi Kareem via TKO (Punches) at 1:22 of Round 2
  • Faizan Khan def. Muhammad Imran via Unanimous Decision
  • Muhammad Naeem def. Muhammad Shahid via TKO (Doctor’s Stoppage) at 3:00 of Round 1
  • Ahmed Mujtaba def. Awais Raja via TKO (Punches) at 1:22 of Round 3
