Mohammed “Jordan Boy” Bin Mahmoud is a fashionable athlete, both inside the cage and outside of it. In competition, the bantamweight athlete has recorded several fashionable victories — the most recent one coming against Stergos “Greek Dynamite” Mikkios in his ONE Championship debut last month. When he is not busy training or throwing down in the cage, however, he makes sure he is dressed in style from head to toe.
Fashion is an important part of the Malaysian’s life, and in this exclusive, he provides four stylish tips.
Tip #1: Make Sure The Hair Is On Point
A quick scroll through Mohammed’s Instagram page might give you a huge hint – hair matters the most, especially to him.
“Even If I’m having a bad day and I don’t feel like dressing up, I must style my hair,” the 22-year-old says. “Whether it’s to a shop nearby or to the gym for training, my hair must be on point.”
The Muay Thai sensation adds that he trims his hair up to four times a month. “It’s really important to me. I don’t know how else to describe it,” he says.
Tip #2: Be Confident In Your Style
Mohammed’s second tip is to have confidence about the clothes you rock.
“Without being confident, you will never pull-off what you wear,” he advises.
It could be simple colors, or much more complex colors to play around with, but the athlete’s advice is to make sure you believe in what you wear.
“If you don’t think you can wear it, it won’t be nice on you,” he simply offers.
Tip #3: Keep It Simple
To the Kuala Lumpur-based athlete, his automatic picks from his closet are black and white tees.
He keeps it simple, and sees no reason to make things overly complicated.
“If I’m going for dinner or on a special date with my girlfriend, I’ll usually wear a basic white or black shirt. When I feel it’s a bit more casual, I use similar colored tees,” he explains. “I pair it with a pair of jeans and a pair of white shoes.”
When in doubt, keep it simple.
Tip #4: Dress To Impress
Mohammed encourages people to look their best. In fact, that is something he takes very seriously.
Although he is new to the fashion world, “Jordan Boy” admits that, as a national athlete, he must keep on impressing both in and out of the cage.
“In the cage, I display my specialty, but I must look good outside, too,” he jokes.
Someone he looks up to is lightweight mixed martial artist Peter Davis, who also works as an actor and model.
“He always tells me the importance of looking good,” the Muay Thai striker continues. “He advises me that it is more than just the looks, but to leave a lasting impression. It helps you get sponsors and modeling deals, too.”
