A successful run as an amateur is in the books as undefeated Jamal Mohammed makes the jump to the professional level this Saturday night in Florence at Hardrock MMA 89. Mohammed has been one of the top featherweights for years. He bested Shawn Nickell last July to notch his 9th amateur win.
Mohammed’s stats are impressive. He won nine fights in a row, seven wins by submission and five fights that didn’t make it out of the second round. The rising prospect is aggressive but calculated during his fights and has a way of finding the right time to end things.
His opponent is a crafty veteran and despite his record has proven to always be dangerous. Brandon Kaiser has 21 fights to his credit and has proven he is unorthodox in his style. He too is a submission specialist and brings a deep well of experience with him.
This fight is one of five professional fights at Hardrock MMA 89. The event takes place this Saturday at Turfway Park in Florence, KY. For tickets visit HardrockMMA.com
