Mohammed Jaraya’s Official GLORY Debut at GLORY 51, Dutch Commission Responds

As reported previously, Mohammed Jaraya has signed a brand new deal with GLORY where he will be moving up in weight to compete a 77kg (welterweight). While GLORY officials assured us if he was to fight, it would be soon, and that would mean the Netherlands, there should be snags with that.

Even more bad news for Enfusion Live fans looking forward to more Mohammed Jaraya fights in the Enfusion League: he’s out.

Mohammed Jaraya Suspended For Two Years After Assault on Judge

Bad news for Enfusion fans as one of their best fighters, Mohammed Jaraya, has been suspended for two years by Sectie Ringcontactsporten Federatie Oosterse Gevechtskunsten (also known as FOG).
