Jeremy Pacatiw first Brave Combat Federation fighter to record 10 fights with promotion
Jeremy Pacatiw saved the night for Filipino fighters in Saudi Arabia as he came out victorious against former title contender Felipe Efrain at BRAVE CF 33, which took place at the Prince Abdullah Al Faisal Stadium, in Jeddah. In the biggest victory of his young career, “The Juggernaut” marked an extremely important landmark, as he is now the first-ever BRAVE CF fighter with 10 fights for the promotion.
Pacatiw has moved further away from BRAVE CF‘s current Welterweight world champion Jarrah Al-Selawe, who has 8 bouts for the organization, with seven wins. His sixth victory means he’s closer to tying “The Jordanian Lion” in number of BRAVE CF wins.
The win marked only his second knockout victory for BRAVE CF and the first one since August of 2017, when he beat another Brazilian, Thiago dela Coleta, back at BRAVE CF 8, in Curitiba, Brazil.
This time around, however, the win was a big one for his career, as Felipe Efrain is widely seen as one of the top fighters in the Bantamweight division. The Brazilian striker gave reigning Bantamweight champion Stephen Loman the hardest fight of his reign, almost submitting “The Sniper” at BRAVE CF 18.
The victory was also important for his fellow Filipino fans, since the country had gone 0-2 in the night before he fought. Harold Banario lost to Gamzat Magomedov, while Rolando Dy was defeated by Anzor Abdulkhozaev.
BRAVE CF 33’s main event ended in victory for Russia, as Ikram Aliskerov had a sucessful return to Middleweight by stopping a tough Diego Gonzalez with strikes in the third round, as BRAVE Combat Federation’s final event of the year had in total five KO’s, four submissions and only two decisions.
