Eldar Eldarov appears to be losing patience after receiving a volley of insults from Joilton Lutterbach as the Super Lightweight champion complied with the harsh demands of the German-Brazilian.
Following Lutterbach's devastating knockout of Number One Contender Marcel Grabinski in the main event of Germany's BRAVE CF 61 earlier this month, he has asked for a title shot. Lutterbach vented his frustration on social media a couple of days ago about the lack of communication from Eldarov's camp.
Lutterbach made an attempt to bait the 165-pound BRAVE CF champion (Eldarov), who is located in Bahrain, to which Eldarov responded:
“My boy, listen to me, I know in your career you have suffered a lot of knockdowns and knockouts, so maybe your brain is damaged or not working properly, for this, I am truly sorry. I cannot change it, but maybe I can help you with doctors, let me know. “But you need to understand that in this game, there are managers, there are matchmakers and there is BRAVE Combat Federation. Whoever they decide is Number One in the rankings, he is the athlete I will defend my title against … This is how it works (…) If you think you can come to one of the best organizations in the world, win one fight and talk this way, you are wrong my friend,” said Eldarov through his social media profiles.
Since defeating Grabinski, Lutterbach has been requesting a match with the champion, and he has reiterated his demands:
“I'm still waiting for you (Eldar) Eldarov. You can say yes, or you can say no, but please, don't run away,” said Lutterbach via his Instagram platform. Lutterbach got so excited and worked up during his video post, he started questioning Eldarov’s intelligence due to his lack of communication regarding this fight. “Don't go silent on me, say something. Maybe you don't know how to talk, maybe you are not so clever, but please, say something’’.
Since its establishment, the BRAVE CF Super Lightweight category has grown in popularity, and a number of competitors are contending for the 165-pound crown. Both Cleiton Silva of Brazil and Mihail Cotruta of Moldova finished their respective battles in the first two rounds at BRAVE CF 60 last month, making strong arguments for why they should be given a chance at the crown.
Cotruta was the one who specifically requested a championship battle from Eldarov, and he appears to be moving ahead of Silva in the standings to contend for Eldar's belt.
