Hamza Kooheji Vs Jeremy Pacatiw is official!
Hamza Kooheji’s opponent for the Brave December event has been finally announced. Kooheji (4-1) will be facing his toughest challenger to date: the undefeated Filipino Jeremy Pacatiw (3-0).
Kooheji had put on quite a show in his Brave 1 debut in front of his home crowd. The KHK MMA fighter emerged victorious via submission in the second round, putting on his most clinical display to date.
Now, it’s time to do it again in front of his adoring fans at the Khalifa Sports Center in Isa, Bahrain. Kooheji’s opponent, fighting out of Team Lakay, is undefeated in his amateur or pro MMA careers. His team, Team Lakay, is actually one of the toughest gyms in the Philippines. Hence, if you’ve never heard of it, do you remember the Stephan Loman, who dismantled Frans Mlambo over three rounds at Brave 1, with a clinical display of strength and supreme grappling skills? He’s from Team Lakay. They breed grapplers and they breed winners, so Kooheji has his hands full at Brave 2.
Yet, Kooheji has some skills of his own which will make this an enthralling contest. He’s also an excellent grappler and possesses a high level submission game. This in turn would make him dangerous at any moment in the fight. Additionally, Hamza Kooheji has been working tirelessly on his stand-up skills in order to become a complete mixed martial artist so we may see evidence of this at Brave 2, if he can stifle the relentless Filipino’s grappling attacks.
In fact, this is a fight which could make or break the careers of both these young Bantamweight fighters! Brave 2 headliner will feature its first ever world title fight between Masio Fullen (11-6) and Alan Omer (19-5) in the featherweight division. Stay tuned on ArabsMMA.com for all on Brave 2.
