Cleiton "Predator" Silva is in the middle of training camp for his much-anticipated return to the BRAVE CF Arena. The Lightweight world champion will make his first title defence in his home country, as he hosts Sweden's Guram Kutateladze in the main event of BRAVE CF 35, set for Balneário Camboriú, Brazil, on March 28th.
And if Cleiton has anything to do with it, the fight against Kutateladze is just the beginning of a long road of dominance for the champ. In an impromptu Q&A answer with his social media followers, "The Predator" claimed he wishes for "many years at the top" of BRAVE CF's Lightweight division.
"This division is great, full of amazing fighters. But I just have one goal right now. To beat Guram, to beat him up badly. I want to show everyone that I'm the champion and no one is coming to my house to take that from me. I will be champion for many years, and I want to keep defending this belt for a long time. It would be cool to fight against other champions, I'm not going to lie. Let's see what the future holds, but right now my focus is on Guram,” said the Brazilian striker, who also welcomed new challengers from other divisions.
BRAVE CF 35 marks the fifth time the fastest-growing MMA promotion in the world lands in Brazil, who becomes the country that hosts the biggest number of BRAVE CF shows, alongside the Kingdom of Bahrain. The organization expects to confirm top names for the fight card in the coming days as some of the best fighters in Brazil and the world are expected to feature.
