“Achieve your dreams or someone will hire you to achieve theirs.”

-Tony Gaskin-

Mixed Martial Arts fighter, from Taekwondo and Muay Thai, to kick boxing; Georges Sahyouni has made Université  Antonine proud beyond his graduation. 

Throughout his athletic journey of seveteen years, Georges aka "The Bullet" has won two local championships in Taekwondo, one Muay Thai Professional title and a Kick Boxing K-1 championship.

“I believe if anyone is truthfully dedicated in this life, will reach higher grounds no matter the circumstances”, said Georges, advising young athletes to strive and never stop grinding. Adding that the road to glory is tough, requiring hard work, solid commitment, late nights and early mornings, but “Every moment will be worth it”.

Georges has shown true devotion to his passion, by training six days a week, up to five hours a day, besides maintaining a balanced diet to uphold his fitness level. 

He graduated from Université  Antonine in Physical Education, and he currently works as a personal trainer. 

His ultimate goal is to achieve as much victories as possible throughout his fighting career. Looking up to his idol, world champion Ramon Dekkers - who passed away three years ago - yet has defeated all his opponents in the land of fighters, Thailand, conquering all the glories as a first foreign fighter. 

We wish Georges the best of luck in his future competitions!
