Isa Town – Bahrain. Masio Fullen emerged victorious in the ending seconds of the first round after surviving a scare of his own earlier at Brave 1 fight night.
The featherweight bout was part of the main card of Brave “The Beginning” which aired live on bravefights.com and on ArabsMMA.com.
Known for his explosive starts to his fights (finishing all of his victories in the first round), Muneer started off on the front foot here rushing Fullen with a series of strikes and extremely well timed counters.
Masio Fullen threw a spinning kick that Muneer did well to side step and launch a haymaker of strike that connected on the Mexican chin. It was shortly thereafter that Fullen made the match into more a grappling contest where he felt he had the advantage, taking Muneer against the cage and delivering a knee to the head of Muneers that dropped the fighter and signaled the beginning of the end.
Both fighters showed great sportsmanship after the bout and a clearly visible Fullen thanked the crowed for their support and for being a part of his tremendous come-from-behind victory!
