The Frenchman successfully entered the American “PFL” league by beating Jordan Zebo this Saturday in Paris in just nine seconds.
For his debut in the American “PFL” league, it took less than ten seconds for Cédric Doumbé, one of the most popular French MMA fighters, to win against Jordan Zebo on Saturday at the Zénith de Paris in a supercharged atmosphere.
Doumbé, a kick boxing specialist, countered a high kick attempt from Zebo to inflict a hook on his face which immediately sent him to the mat. The referee had no choice but to stop the fight.
“Give him strength, he’s a good guy”
In front of some 6,000 enthusiastic spectators, including Kylian Mbappé and his PSG teammates Randal Kolo Muani, Achraf Hakimi and Lucas Hernandez, Doumbé, king of entertainment, put on a show as soon as he entered, arriving in the arena with a mattress on which was written “Good night Jordan.” The public, totally committed to his cause, took up the slogan “Jordan, you are dead!” launched by Doumbé on social networks several weeks ago.
Multiple world kickboxing champion, the 31-year-old fighter made the jump to mixed martial arts two years ago. He quickly built a solid community of fans, thanks to his provocative personality and his clever mastery of social networks, through Instagram stories or Youtube videos in which he multiplies the “clashes” and demonstrates his qualities as a “trashtalker” .
For his first fight in a major league, he had to win in style to prove that he was more than a big mouth. It’s done with this fight, his first in the “Professional Fighters League”, the young league that is rising in the world of MMA. He still wanted to greet his opponent as soon as the hostilities ended. “Don’t turn him off on the networks, give him strength, he’s a good guy,” he told the audience. This fight also allowed him to settle scores with Zebo’s coach Fernand Lopez, the strong man of French MMA and sworn enemy of Doumbé. “It wasn’t Jordan who took that knockout, you know who took that knockout,” he said.
A little earlier, another darling of French MMA, Abdoul Abdouraguimov won by submission against the Briton Brad Wheeler in the first round.
