The card for HEXAGONE MMA 13, scheduled for January 26 2024 at the Zenith in Paris, keeps growing. In addition to GregMMA and Mehdi Ben Lakhdhar, who will be headlining, another star has been added to the fightcard, Abou Kamara. The famous French rapper, known to the general public under the pseudonym “Abou Debeing”, will be making his second professional fight against Michael Bento, as he continues to progress in the world of combat sports.
As a reminder, while his hits accumulate tens of millions of listens on the internet, Abou Kamara took the risk, at the end of 2023, to start a sporting career, and make his passion for MMA a reality. A choice that paid off, as the Parisian made a perfect professional debut on October 28 in the Netherlands, winning by submission from the first round. Signed to a multi-fight contract with HEXAGONE MMA, he will have the opportunity to step up his game on January 26, when he appears on the most talked-about French card of the year.
“I was born in Paris, I grew up in Paris, I live in Paris, I exist thanks to Paris! So I’m going to give back to Paris everything this city has given me”, said Abou Kamara, excited at the idea of fighting in front of his home crowd. An excitement shared by HEXAGONE MMA co-founder Jérôme Pourrut. “Abou isn’t just a rapper. If we chose to recruit him, it’s above all for his fighting skills. He’s trained by Medhi Ben Lakhdhar and Taylor Lapilus, and he’s eager to learn. Of course, he will also help to attract a new audience. It’s great news for HEXAGONE MMA.”
With the official announcement of Abou Kamara’s fight, HEXAGONE MMA 13 is undoubtedly the must-attend event of the beginning of the year. Among the dozen fights announced, the public will be present to the grand return of GregMMA, MMA pioneer and social networking star, whose last victory by K-O, on the stage of the Orange ancient Theater, going around on social networks. French prodigy Mehdi Ben Lakhdhar will also be present on the Parisian card, with a scheduled clash against the spectacular Osvald Fedorovic, renowned for his spectacular boxing.
