Rizlen Zouak Vs Gisele Moreira: A Rematch of Titans for Ares Bantamweight Title
Former Judo Champion Turned MMA Fighter, Rizlen Zouak
Former French-Moroccan judo champion Rizlen Zouak, who transitioned into Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), has been making waves in the fighting world. Zouak was born on May 14, 1986, in Beaune, Côte d’or, to a French mother and a Moroccan father. Her maternal grandfather was an English boxer, and several of her maternal uncles practiced Greco-Roman wrestling. Zouak discovered judo at the age of six, a discipline she practiced for years, leading to her becoming a three-time African Judo Champion in 2012, 2013, and 2015.
Zouak’s Transition to MMA
In 2016, Zouak transitioned to MMA, a sport she was previously unfamiliar with. She was drawn to it after watching videos and observing physical training sessions. Her ability to learn MMA techniques by observation was evident, her brain spontaneously memorizing the different techniques. The following year, she knocked out her opponent, South African Jacqualine Trosee, in just 30 seconds, marking her arrival in the MMA world.
Upcoming Rematch with Gisele Moreira
Zouak is set to face Brazilian opponent Gisele Moreira in a highly anticipated rematch. The fight is scheduled to take place on December 15, 2023, at the Marcel Cerdan Sports Palace in Levallois, France, as part of the Ares 18 event. Moreira previously defeated Zouak via a technical knockout (TKO) at the Ares FC 2 in December 2021. This forthcoming rematch provides Zouak with an opportunity to avenge her previous loss and claim the Ares bantamweight title.
Stakes of the Duel: Ares Bantamweight Title
The main stake of this duel is the first Ares bantamweight belt, which both fighters will be vying for. Ares Fighting is a major Mixed Martial Art (MMA) League in France. The rematch is not just about personal redemption for Zouak, but also a chance to secure a prestigious title in the MMA community. The stakes couldn’t be higher, and the anticipation couldn’t be greater.
A Clash of Titans
The upcoming fight is being seen as a clash of titans, with both fighters known for their strength, technique, and tenacity. Zouak, with her judo background and her impressive transition into MMA, is a force to reckon with. On the other hand, Moreira, with her formidable record and previous victory over Zouak, is equally a strong contender. As the fight draws closer, fans and experts alike are eagerly waiting to see who comes out on top.
