An Iron Will…

24 years old, 6 feet tall, 185 pounds…

Protégé of famed compatriot and Phoenix FC veteran MMA and kickboxing great Alaa Mansour of the Black Bulls…

A outstanding physical specimen with an impressive 7-1 record…

… and an athlete with the heart, the will, the burning desire to be the very, very best.

Eslam “IRONMAN” Syaha is a proficient kickboxer with a combined 5-1 record across both K-1 and Muay Thai competition, and capped off a surging tear through the ranks of Egyptian MMA by capturing the AUFC Middleweight title in 2016 – an accomplishment that followed directly on from a 3-0 run as a light heavyweight.

This kind of athletic excellence is nothing new to “IRONMAN”. From handball and athletics in his formative years, to bodybuilding, and on to MMA by way of Karate, Syaha has long been dedicated to honing his craft across a variety of sporting fields. A bonafide star-in-the-making, Syaha has since turned his attentions to disciplines as varied as boxing and wrestling, with Mansour installing him as the second coach at the self-owned Black Bulls Team gym.

Based in Cairo, the Black Bulls share the same drive and determination for self-improvement and thirst for knowledge as Syaha himself. With ambitions of crafting a focal point of martial arts in the Middle East, it’s no surprise that “IRONMAN” feels “there is more yet to achieve” from his MMA career. Determined to carve his name alongside the world’s great middleweight champions in the wider world, Syaha is just one of the fighters competing for Saracens MMA ready to “go global”!
