BRAVE CF Super Lightweight Champion Eldar Eldarov has been put under the spotlight with the latest announcement that the winner of BRAVE CF 49: Super Fights main event will be facing him for the title next.
Luan “Miau” Santiago and Benoit Saint-Denis are scheduled to fight on March 25th for the number one contender spot in the BRAVE CF Super Lightweight division, which has been dominated by Eldarov since its establishment.
Santiago fired at Eldarov earlier today claiming that he is the new generation, and that he is coming after Eldarov. The news did not sit well with the reigning BRAVE CF Super Lightweight Champion who took offense to Santiago
“I don’t know why Luan is talking about this because he never faced guys with my style,” says Eldarov. “KHK are the new generation. We are the new style, and we are just starting. It won’t change in the near future.”
KHK MMA is known for their unique style of Bahrain-Dagestan grappling and wrestling, and are considered one of the best teams in the world when it comes to mixed martial arts and other grappling martial arts, such as sambo and pure wrestling.
Santiago has stepped into fire challenging Eldarov, and the question remains as to whether “Miau” will get the opportunity to face the champ. For now, the wait continues until March 25th at BRAVE CF 49: Super Fights in Arad Fort at the Kingdom of Bahrain when the fate of either Santiago or Saint-Denis is decided.
