In 23 seconds the bout ended with Escayo tapping out to the submission. The win marked the 5th in a row for the featherweight from Pakistan. Raza will be joining the expanding featherweight division of the Brave Combat Federation which is currently reigned by Bubba Jenkins who was crowned the champion at Brave 16 hosted in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
