Interview with Nezzar Dimes

You know how Habib played a major role in bringing Dagestan to its present state and into all other Russian states. I want to do the same for all other Arab and Middle Eastern countries, not just Palestine. “

So he just gave me the cause of the nickname of the World Muay Thai Champion named Ramii Brahim. They called him” Calling it “the son of Palestine,” he took the name for a moment, fixed it, and added a twist to it for me. It’s a cool name. Not only can you fight for me, but you can also go home and fight for what’s happening. It just represents my people. I’m just trying to map my people. “
Transition to MMA

It definitely gave me an additional boost of motivation. He was something special. Especially after losing to the JUCO Nationals in 2019 and not competing for everything in 2020. Then the division I’m working on didn’t really work. So MMA was really my call. “

Especially in my high level wrestling, the cool thing about Dante is that he’s a black belt in both Jiu-Jitsu and Judo. So when he cooperates with my wrestling, it will be very freaky to beat me. I really think it will beat the top American teams and gyms like AKA. Who Momo is starting to pay attention to us and there is a good reason. “
Nether Dime Combat Style
“I start by saying this, and what I said after my last fight is that I’m evolving,” he said. “As you level up, you’ll find that you’re not a wrestler. Over time, people will see more and more impressive things from me. That’s for sure. But obviously, wrestling is mine. Being bread and butter, that’s my background and it’s my true roots where I came from. But believe me, I can also throw my hand. I really want to start illuminating the crowd because I can brighten it. “
