A proud son of Watford, England will be looking to raise the nations flag high at BRAVE Combat Federations much awaited return to Russia on November 6.
Sam ‘The Future’ Patterson is set to take on hometown favourite Kamil Magomedov on the supporting card of BRAVE CF 55, which will emanate from the bustling city of Rostov-on-Don.
The 25-year-old Englishman has been undefeated since 2018, racking up six-straight victories with five coming by way of finish.
Following defeating MMA veteran Felipe Silva via first round knockout, Patterson elevated himself to a potential contender by outpointing Yiles ‘Broly’ Dijroun at BRAVE CF 51 last June.
‘The Future’ believes that he has a business to settle with BRAVE CF Lightweight World Champion Ahmed ‘The Butcher’ Amir as their first encounter in April 2019 ended in an anticlimactic draw. But before he can dream of a World Title date with Amir, Patterson must enter enemy territory and beat Magomedov in front of his countrymen on November 6.
like Patterson, Magomedov is riding high on a stellar winning streak and owns an impressive 14-1 slate as a pro. In a land known for wrestling, he stands out as one of the best jiu-jitsu practitioners in the region. Magomedov’s skills equipped him to become the head jiu-jitsu coach for KHK MMA.
The 29-year-old brings in a brand-new test for Patterson, which he hasn’t seen in his young career. However, a victory over the Russian powerhouse will certainly put him into a much higher pedestal that could pave the way for a rematch against Amir.
BRAVE CF 55 will be headlined by a pivotal Flyweight tournament semi-finals bout between Jose ‘Shorty’ Torres and Ali ‘Puncher King’ Bagautinov and is going to be broadcast live and free in the United Kingdom on BRAVE CF TV on Saturday November 6th at 2:00PM (GMT+1).
