After recent win, Kurdish MMA fighter sets eyes on champ-champ status
Since making his debut at 18, Abdurrahman says he has grown a lot and that his evolution as a fighter will continue.
“Martial arts and the fight game have forced me to grow in multiple ways,” he told Kurdistan 24. “This game has put me in a different zone mentally, and I won’t stop until my mission is complete.”
According to the Kurdish athlete, there is no room for complacency in MMA, “you have to respect it and put all of your energy into it.”
“In this game, you don’t get rewarded for putting 99 percent into it. You pay for the one percent you didn’t put in.”
Abdurrahman, who holds an amateur record of five wins and two losses, says he has plans on turning professional in the future, but his focus is to gain as much experience and learn as much as he can as an amateur fighter.
“When I feel I’m ready, I’ll make the jump.”
