Joilton "Peregrino" Lutterbach has engaged in numerous titanic fights. The Gladiator Fight Gym representative, who has a record of 37-10, is a fearless player who is not afraid to compete in the sport he most enjoys by switching between different weight classes. The top Super Lightweight challenger in BRAVE CF jumps up a category this month to compete against Sweden's Andreas Gustafsson Berg in a brand-new Super Welterweight co-main event at BRAVE CF 70 on April 23 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Shortly after the initial co-main event between Bantamweights Jose Torres and Nkosi Ndebele was postponed, Lutterbach and Gustafsson Berg agreed to the bout.
With seven stoppages in eight 185-pound fights, including a devastating knockout of Serbia's Miro Jurkovic at BRAVE CF 39 that won him the BRAVE CF "Fight of the Year" award, Gustafsson is a natural Middleweight and one of Europe's most lethal finishers. Lutterbach is well aware of his opponent's strength.
Lutterbach's excellent success rate of 37 victories and 27 knockouts has been greatly influenced by his meticulous preparation. Even in bouts with little notice, he doesn't leave anything to chance. With that in mind, he most recently hired the legendary Dutch middleweight Gegard Mousasi to assist him in deciphering the Andreas Gustafsson Berg riddle.
Similar to Lutterbach, Mousasi has competed internationally in a variety of combat sports, amassing a 49-8-2 MMA record. After shaking up the 165-pound division with two first-round knockout victories over top contenders Marcel Grabinski and Mihail Cotruta, the Dutchman, a decorated four-time Middleweight and Light Heavyweight MMA champion, will be of great assistance to Lutterbach as he attempts to open the BRAVE CF Super Welterweight division doors.
Lutterbach has been training with Erko Jun of Bosnia and Herzegovina, who will be making his BRAVE CF debut when he takes on Marko Drmonjic of Slovenia in the main event of BRAVE CF 70. Jun trains out of the renowned UFD gym in Dusseldorf, Germany, and represents Gladiator Fight Gym.
BRAVE Combat Federation will make its second trip to Slovenia in three years, during which time it will jointly promote BRAVE CF 70 with the premier regional organisation WFC. As WFC and BRAVE CF maintain their long-standing collaboration, the biggest event in Slovenian mixed martial arts history will help to advance the scene in Central Europe.
