Jiu-Jitsu expert Mahamed Aly showcased his dominance with a brutal stoppage in his MMA debut on a thrilling Saturday night in Houston, TX.
In the co-main event of PCS 4, Aly faced the one-time Bellator veteran John Ott. The heavyweight clash witnessed Aly’s skill as he not only bloodied Ott but also sealed the deal with a perfectly executed right kick to the head. This led to Ott’s swift exit in the opening round.
After the match, Aly expressed his ambitions. He stated: “I’m not here just to be a jiu-jitsu guy that comes here and finishes people, even though I will finish a lot of people. I want to show that I’m getting better in my striking. I want to throw a lot of elbows, a lot of knees. I couldn’t do it today, but the goal was to throw a lot of knees, a lot of elbows, see some blood. We saw some blood, but I wanted a little more.”
Turning 30 earlier this month, Aly outlined his ambitious roadmap for his MMA journey. He revealed his plans to join the UFC and ultimately win the UFC heavyweight title.
With a determined tone, Aly asserted: “We have eight more years. We’re just getting started.”
With an undefeated 1-0 record in MMA, Aly brings an impressive background from the jiu-jitsu circuit. As a black belt, he secured major titles. This includes the IBJJF World Championship without and with gi in 2015 and 2018, respectively.
Additionally, he won three gold medals at the 2017 IBJJF European Open. Aly’s grappling skills extend to victories over renowned competitors like Nicholas Meregali, Alexandre Ribeiro, and Dillon Danis.
Mahamed Aly’s transition from Jiu-Jitsu icon to a successful MMA debut signifies the emergence of a multifaceted martial artist. As he sets his sights on the UFC, combat sports fans can anticipate a thrilling journey ahead.
