Internet sensation Sajad Gharibi, known as the “Iranian Hulk” due to his sheer size and huge chest, has signed up with the Bare-Knuckle Fighting Championship.
The 6ft2 giant has an abnormally large frame, weighing 390 pounds (177kg), and has built up a sizeable following with his eye-catching physique.
He has now joined the Bare-Knuckle Fighting Championship roster and is set to enter the ring for a fight which will no doubt raise plenty of eyebrows.
Whilst he is now vowing to fight in the ring, Gharib previously stated his desire to join the fight against Isis.
In an impassioned video back in 2016, Gharib claimed he wanted to join the Iranian Armed Forces to fight the Islamic State in the Syrian Civil War.
David Feldman, the BKFC president, said of Gharibi’s new contract finalized on Monday;: “This guy’s going to make his Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship debut in early 2020.
“We’re going to do a show entitled ‘USA vs. Iran: World War III’. He’s literally our biggest signing we’ve ever had.
“But he’s going to make his way over to Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, he’s gonna make a home here, and we expect really, really big things from ‘The Iranian Hulk’.”
