1. The Arab Invasion!
5 Arab fighters will take part of Brave 2 fight card. Jarrah Al Silawi, who will make his promotional debut for Brave having departed from Desert Force was a strong addition. “The Jordanian Lion” has gone from strength to strength in his career during his time at Desert Force and following the end of his contract decided to make the giant leap to Brave, where he is expected to face a very high caliber international opponent in Erik Carlsson.
Another man who is extremely marketable for similar reasons is Ottman Azaitar (7-0), the Moroccan destroyer. He’s on a streak of his own, five first round finishes in a row and of course, he’s yet to taste defeat as a professional – only victory. He has fairly untested ground skills since his hands get the job done every time, brutally so. When he lands, his opponents fall, plain and simple.
Hamza Kooheji will fight against undefeated Filipino Jeremy Pacatiw. If he continues to rack up the wins, this 23-year-old may be the next star to rise out of the middle-east. Ahmed Faress ” The Prince ” will be handed a hard tasks when he faces Cristian Quiñonez. This is a make or break situation for this young , up and coming arab fighter. Finally, the man with perhaps the most star potential is the Algerian Elias Boudegzdame (12-4), a man with an infectious smile and the skills to go with it. His fight has been announced and it is a daunting prospect, the elite Walel “The Gazelle” Watson (13-8). A man who has shared a cage with some of the meanest fighters on the planet and arrives at Brave with a wealth of experience at the pinnacle of the sport.
