The Kombat Kingdom series has been breaking records in and out of the cage. Several BRAVE CF veterans have risen to a new level and broken previous marks in two thrilling nights of fights so far. As BRAVE CF 43 approaches, Welterweight world champion Jarrah Al-Silawi will look to regain one of his own records: biggest number of wins.
‘’The Jordanian Lion’’ is currently set at seven wins under the BRAVE CF banner which ties him to most wins with Hamza Kooheji and Ikram Aliskerov. Both men reached Jarrah’s number during Kombat Kingdom, with Aliskerov submitting Denis Tiuliulin at BRAVE CF 41, and Hamza edging Aidan James at BRAVE CF 42.
Now, Jarrah will have the chance to once again be the lone owner of the record. For that to happen, though, he will have to beat Melvin van Suijdam, who makes his promotional debut looking to shock the world and beat the Welterweight champ in a special Middleweight bout.
Al-Silawi is looking to test the waters in a heavier weight-class with views to possibly challenge old rival Mohammad Fakhreddine for the Middleweight world title in the next months. They shared the cage twice before, with Jarrah submitting Fakhreddine in their first bout and then losing a split decision in the rematch.
For Al-Silawi, a finish against van Suijdam will also put him closer to Fakhreddine’s record of five knockouts, which is the most any BRAVE CF fighter has been able to accomplish thus far in the company’s short but storied road.
BRAVE CF 43 takes place this Thursday, October 1st, at the National Stadium, in Bahrain, and will pit several rising stars of the game in a show headlined by the return of Jarrah Al-Silawi. Muhammad Mokaev, Kasum Kasumov and Anzor Abdulkhozhaev are some of the young stars in action as they take on Jamie Kelly, Dimitar Kostov, and Soheill Davoodi, respectively.
