Clark Gracie recently attended one of his student’s fights, but he wasn’t there long. Fatimeh Sayyad fought Katherine Richter at the Total Fight Challenge event in Chicago, Illinois, last month, and the fight lasted just fifteen seconds.
“Fatimeh used her taekwondo background and knocked Richter down with a kick,” Gracie says, “Then she was able to establish a strong mount quickly, and finished strong with referee stoppage from ground and pound. I am telling you – this girl is good!”
Sayyad’s fight against Richter was only her second MMA fight. She won them both. “She will most likely start fighting in the professional division very soon,” Gracie says, “Each of her fights has been fifteen seconds long, which gives her a total of thirty seconds of MMA experience. It’s kind of exciting to see what the future of MMA has for her.” You can catch Sayyad on the mats at Clark Gracie Chicago in Bridgeview, IL.
