Gharibi, who said in 2016 that he would join the Iranian forces in the fight against ISIS, announced his intention to do martial arts on Instagram in January when he threw the glove down at all who were willing to join him in the MMA octagon to step.

He wrote: & # 39; Be brave and invite me to fight instead of hiding behind your sponsors. I'm ready to fight you, show me what you have to say in the ring. & # 39;

In May, he accepted the challenge of a Brazilian rival, with the fight for the end of the year.

& # 39; So I finally accept my first professional fight from a Brazilian hunter before 2020 & # 39 ;, he wrote on Instagram, where he has collected nearly 450,000 followers.

Gharibi did not mention his opponent, but it was speculated that it was 29-year-old Romario dos Santos Alves, also known as the Brazilian Hulk.

Alves, who in March with an Instagram video threatened to tear Gharibi's head, started serious training in 2009 and weighs around 104 pounds.

But it is not believed that the clash between the titans took place.

Alves nearly lost an arm in 2013 as a result of injections with synthol oil that, according to local media, caused a serious reaction.

The use of injected oil to improve the appearance of the muscles is common in bodybuilders, although synthol may cause pulmonary embolism, nerve damage, infections and the formation of oil-filled sores in the muscle.

Over the past five years, the Brazilian Hulk has reportedly changed his lifestyle and started training healthy.

Gharibi, meanwhile, has a cult following on social media where he places photos of weightlifting.

His Instagram page shows a series of topless photos of himself and photos of him in his daily life.

He often takes photos with objects that look incredibly small when held next to him – such as a can of Fanta orange.

In another photo, he wraps his enormous arm around a friend of normal size.

He can lift around 180 kg, which is almost as much as his body weight, and has participated in the powerlifting category of competitions.

He has also participated in bodybuilding competitions that represent his country.

If the two Hulks ever fight in the ring, the Iranian will have a considerable grand advantage – around 160 pounds and 6ins in height.

But that does not mean that he will prevail.

Larger participants can often be less agile and more easily tired than their lighter opponents.

Gharibi became famous when he said on social media that he would join Iranian forces fighting against ISIS extremists who occupy Syria.

He lays much of his size on genetics, but because of his frame he had to deny rumors that he was the executioner of ISIS, known as The Bulldozer, according to 9 news.

Little is known about the personal life of the Iranian Hulk, but it is said that ending the terrorist regime in war-torn Syria is close to his heart.

It was not immediately clear who Gharibi will fight in the Bare-Knuckle Fighting Championship.
