BRAVE CF 6: Eldarov picks up second win after festival of knockouts and submissions
Apr 29, 2017
BRAVE CF 6, held in in Almaty, Kazakhstan, this Saturday, delivered one of the most exciting night of fights in recent memory as eight out of nine bouts ended with a finish â€“ five knockouts and three submissions. In the main event of the evening, Eldar Eldarov picked up his second BRAVE CF win with a first round KO of Henrique â€œRasputinâ€ Gomes.
The Russian powerhouse improved his professional record to nine wins with only one defeat. After a decision win at BRAVE CF 1, Eldarov came back to his finishing ways, dominating Rasputin on the feet and knocking him out with ground and pound after a takedown.
Brazilian Lightweight Gomes protested the stoppage, but later recognized he was out and the referee was correct in stopping the bout.
In the co-main event of the evening, Chinaâ€™s Habiti Tuerxunbieke survived a knockdown by Orkhan Mamedov to get a KO victory for the ages, getting his sixth MMA career win.
Mohammad Fakhreddine, on the other hand, survived a crazy week to get his second BRAVE CF win, this time with a first round knockout of Lukasz Witos. After not making weight for his Welterweight bout with Leonardo Mafra, his Brazilian opponent didnâ€™t take the fight. The Lebanese phenom agreed to take a heavier challenger in Witos, and the two fought at a Catchweight of 81 kg.
It didnâ€™t matter to Fakhreddine, who used his excellent notion of distance to keep the Pole at bay, before attacking and dropping him twice. At the end of the first round, â€œThe Latestâ€ got the mount and dropped bombs until the referee stepped in to save Witos.
Elsewhere there were wins for Maryia Agapova, who beat Yulia â€œKillerâ€ in Braveâ€™s first ever female bout, and Swedish Lightweight Erik Carlsson, who TKOâ€™d Gadzhimusa Gaziev in the opening frame.
