Adam “The Arch Angel” Atiyeh is one of the most intriguing, yet mysterious MMA fighters in the tri-state region.

Atiyeh has a ton of athletic achievements, competed in multiple sports but found his niche in MMA.

He labels that he is from “Parts Unknown” due to the many moves in his life…Some to places he didn’t want to be.

If you’ve never heard of the name “Adam Atiyeh” but have been to regional fights in the northeast region to include New Jersey and Pennsylvania, you can recognize him by leopard print compression trunks (or in one instance, a banana hammock), but there’s more to Atiyeh than what meets the eye. He’s a showman and entertainer at the end of the day which makes his name circulate whether you love him or hate him.

Last Friday, April 28th, Atiyeh took on Shane “Tank” Wilson for the Art Of War light heavyweight title and defeated Wilson in his backyard of Lancaster, PA. Atiyeh was kind enough to share some time with MyMMANews’ own, Adam Crist to discuss the bout with Wilson, his haunting past, and much more! Tune in below!
