Lebanese MMA fighter Charbel Diab shocked the IMMAF Super-Heavyweight division last week when he clinched the Gold Medal in the 265lb+ bracket. Diab is the only Lebanese that got a medal out of the 2016 IMMAF World Championships of Amateur MMA.


Not only did Diab win the title but he dominated his opponents and won the semi-final fight with a devastating KO punch at the first minute, while it took him less than 3 minutes to finish off former IMMAF Worlds Silver medalist Marcin Kalata.

We have a lot of young and promising MMA fighters in Lebanon and they are being trained and guided by the best. Congrats to Tristar Gym Lebanon and all those who helped achieve this amazing result!
