In the aftermath of their hard-fought showdown at BRAVE CF 73 last month, tensions between Jose "Shorty" Torres and Nkosi Ndebele have continued to simmer. The two warriors clashed in a memorable bout for the BRAVE CF Bantamweight championship, marking one of the most fiercely contested title affairs in the promotion's history.

Ultimately, the judges rendered their verdict, with Jose Torres earning the victory on the scorecards. However, it was far from a one-sided contest, leading to a split decision and leaving Nkosi Ndebele feeling that he had done enough to secure the championship.

In the days and weeks following the event, Ndebele made it clear that he was dissatisfied with the outcome. His frustrations reached a boiling point when he referred to Torres as a "fake champion." In response to his rival's remarks, Torres offered his perspective on the matter.

"The funny thing is people can say what they want to say, especially my last opponent. I get he's upset for whatever reason; he lost a fight, but that's not the judges’ fault. That's his fault. So he can blame everyone. He could say so many things: 'fake champion,' you didn't do this, you didn't do that. But that's not my job. That's also not my problem. Your job is to win. In all three judges' eyes, and their opinions, you didn't do so," Torres stated.

Torres went on to express his bemusement at the backlash he has received from Ndebele's supporters, including messages on his social media platforms. He emphasized that his sole responsibility was to secure the win, and he had done precisely that.

"I mean, Nkosi Ndebele obviously has his own team and has his own family and nation that everyone is going to my Facebook, they're going to my Instagram and saying this and saying that. I'm like, why are you guys mad at me? I just did my job and this guy failed to do his, and now I'm in trouble. So for me, it's like I just do what I'm supposed to do, and that was win, and that's what I did."

As Nkosi Ndebele continues to advocate for a rematch, it remains uncertain whether their clash at BRAVE CF 73 will be the last time these two warriors share the cage. The tension between Torres and Ndebele suggests that the rivalry is far from over, leaving fans eager to see if a rematch will materialize in the future.
