A loyal fan of Mohammad Fakhreddine in Orange County, California is expected to have an expensive night on Friday, March 11 as he opted to put big money on BRAVE CF Middleweight World Champion.
Fakhreddine is set to battle arch-nemesis Mohamed “L'Ambiance" Said Maalem in a much-awaited rematch for the vacant BRAVE CF Light Heavyweight World Championship at BRAVE CF 57, which takes place at the Khalifa Sports City Arena in Isa Town, Bahrain.
The unnamed fan is betting $100,000 that Fakhreddine will beat Said Maalem and make history as the first fighter under the promotion’s umbrella to hold two World Titles at the same time.
The first encounter between Fakhreddine and Said Maalem at BRAVE CF 52: Bad Blood in August 2021 ended in controversy as the result was overturned by the Italian Federation of Grappling and Mixed Martial Arts following a thorough investigation of the match.
It was found that there were illegal strikes made by Said Maalem on Fakhreddine in the final sequence, something that contributed to the stoppage.
Now, Fakhreddine and Said Maalem will have to settle the score with a chance to have a much more definitive ending and crown the new BRAVE CF Light Heavyweight World Champion.
It’s not clear what odds Fakhreddine’s fan will get for the said amount of his bet, but he will surely earn more than his wager if the Lebanese hard-hitter walks out with another belt draped on his shoulder.
