In his 3rd appearance at Brave Combat Federation, Jala Al Daaja will welcome his opponent Crisanto Pitpitunge to Brave CF’s Bantamweight division at Brave CF 10: The Kingdom Rises. Representing Jordan’s Kingdom Fighters, Al Daaja is once again returning to compete in his home country since his last fight there in 2016. He will step inside the cage against an experienced opponent, Crisanto Pitpitunge (9-5-0) who is officially ranked 5th in Southeast Asia.
Al Daaja knows that his opponent is versatile in the fight game. He is sure that earning a win over Pitpitunge is exactly what he needs at this point in his career to help to push himself further up the bantamweight ranks.
“My opponent is well-rounded in MMA. He has fought for multiple well-known promotions in Asia and he was the champion in one of them. I know that this victory will be great for me my country, and it will definitely lift my further develop my skill and experience level in MMA.”
Having previously fought a closely contested match against Frans Mlambo at Brave CF 4, a rematch could logically be awaiting Jalal in the future in case he scores a victory over his current opponent. However, Jalal is in no rush for a rematch and is actually fully committed to MMA having different plans in mind. He is ready to fight anyone who stands in his path with hopes of stopping him from grabbing the Brave CF Bantamweight title.
“I will leave the rematch decision to Brave CF’s administration. They are the ones who will decide whether of not I deserve the rematch. For me, the title is more important and I’m thinking about it more than the rematch at this point. I’m ready to fight anyone. I’m training hard, I’m fully committed to MMA and my goal is to get the Brave CF Bantamweight title. I want that title and I don’t mind fighting anybody!”
After a recent 1st round TKO victory at Brave CF 9: The Kingdom of Champions over Jeremy Pacatiw (Watch Fight Below), Al Daaja knows that he is currently in a favorable position, fighting in his home country of Jordan. A victory highlighted by an exceptional performance is all that Jalal needs in order to push himself up the ladder and get closer to the title shot that he is so passionately working for.
Brave 10: The Kingdom Rises will take place on the 2nd of March at Prince Hamzah Sports Hall inside King Hussein Sports City. The event will be headlined by a Featherweight title fight featuring the current champion Elias Boudgezdame against Jakub Kowalewicz. The co-main event features the Jordanian local Jarrah Al-Silawi in welterweight action against the undefeated David Bear. Also, Abdul-Kareem Al-Selwady will take on Charlie Leary for a Lightweight Title eliminator, and the score will finally be settled in one of the hottest rivalries in MMA as Mohammad Fakhreddine takes on Tahar Hadbi in their highly anticipated rematch.
