Pakistan’s MMA fighter Mehmosh Raza wins ASPERA FC featherweight title


Pakistan’s Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Mehmosh ‘The Renegade’ Raza won the featherweight title of Aspera Fighting Championship Asia in the Philippines.

He defeated Filipino fighter Adonis Sevilleno on Sunday and won the fight and belt.

Sharing the news about his victory on his Facebook page, Raza wrote: “Alhamdulillah. Got the cheese.” All praise to Allah. Thank you to everyone who showed love and support. You all know who you are. Early birthday gift #AndNew.”


Talking about the fight last week, Raza explained that he had done some research on his opponent.

“He is from the Philippines so we are expecting boxing,” he said, emphasising his advantage due to his wrestling skills.

Warning his opponent, Mehmosh said that something special was required to avoid a tough night.

On May 2 this year, Raza outclassed Ukraine’s Igor Gryckiv in the third round at the Rebel FC-7 Fight for Honour featherweight class in Shanghai.

Mehmosh only took five minutes in the third round to bring Gryckiv down as the judges unanimously declared him the winner of the bout.
