News regarding my fight at UFC London. We’re sitting in the locker room and it’s just 1 hour left to the fight but unfortunately the UFC doctors stopped my fight. I got an eye infection on fight week, got 3 different medications and from day to day it became worst. I had sunglasses on on the official weigh ins to not show my infected eye and still try to fight. We tried everything possible to deliver the best performance of my life. I had the best fight camp in my life with my big brothers @hhiidro @firas_zahabi and @yasserhirch. I believe that everything happens for a reason, if you trust in god, you know thats everything happens for good. I have the best coaches , brother and supporters that why we gonna reach the top of this sport. Thank you to @seanshelby and the @ufc for this amazing week they really tried everything to make this fight possible. @kings_mma @aliabdelaziz000
