The fastest-growing MMA organization will make its much-anticipated debut in Belarus, with BRAVE CF 51, which is set to take place on June 4th in association with Rukh Sports Management. And BRAVE Combat Federation’s latest event announcement has opened the gate to a lot of tension within several weight divisions, with fighters calling one another out, elaborate challenging messages on Instagram, and a lot of trash talking.
That wasn’t the case for Featherweight young star Husein Kadimagomaev, who took a rather upscale approach of challenging an opponent for BRAVE CF 51 in Belarus. After a fight of the night performance as the co-main event of BRAVE CF 47: Asian Domination, when he eventually fell short for the first time as a mixed martial arts (ending a 19-win unbeaten run) Kadimagomaev is eager to get back to the winning column and has set his eyes on Agshin Babayev.
Shortly after the announcement of BRAVE CF 51 in Belarus, Kadimagomaev shared an Instagram post with his picture next to that of Babayev who has over three times the amount of professional fights on his record than he does. He has urged BRAVE CF officials to make that fight and says he’s ready to put on a show for Belarus fans.
“We both had our fights in the same card and now I am sure that Agshin is as hungry as I am and intends to return,” says Kadimagomaev. “You’re a good, experienced fighter with a record of 22-7, I would be honoured to share the cage with you at the June BRAVE CF tournament in Minsk.”
Babayev has yet to respond publicly, however has been sharing Kadimagomaev’s statement over social media and reposting popular outlets who are eager for this match-up as the similarities in their fighting styles would result in a spectacular display of mixed martial arts. Fans have also been vocal about rooting for this as speculations continue to rise.
It’s evident that Kadimagomaev is looking for a way to redeem himself after his latest fight and prove himself worthy of being a top contender for the vacant BRAVE CF Featherweight World Champion title.
