Luiz Cado defeated fellow countryman Luis Felipe Dias in the main event of BRAVE CF 60 by technical knockout (due to strikes) in the third round, demonstrating to BRAVE NATION that he is the toughest Brazilian Super Welterweight. Additionally, he has pledged to control the 175-pound class, according to BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid.
Much was made of the match-up between two of Brazil's best Super Welterweights in the run-up to the fight because they both have illustrious resumes. Dias (now 14-5), a well-respected athlete who had held the No. 1 Welterweight ranking in Brazil after winning two championship belts in organisations with a Brazilian focus, stood in one corner.
Dias's opposite number was Cado (now 15-7-1), also known as Golden Boy, who had previously won two championships and was at the time holding a prestigious rating inside Brazil.
All these Championship information was conveniently packaged into a goodie bag before BRAVE CF 60, setting the stage for "The battle of Brazil's Baddest Super Welterweight." Dias described what will happen in his BRAVE CF 60 pre-fight interview by using the primary numbers analogy: Cado is incredibly tough, but this is about me, my victory, and I'll show that I'm the best. They say that 1+1=2, but 1+1will be the number one, and that's me, declared Dias, sure that he could defeat his foe.
After BRAVE CF 60, Cado disproved this notion, and what better way to confirm his position as undisputed No. 1 175-pound champion of Brazil than with the first BRAVE CF 60 victory of the evening?
‘’I respect him (Dias) a lot. I knew I was “Brazil’s Number One”, but I had to prove it. I came prepared for war, I stuck around and did the job my corner told and entrusted me with. I did everything they told me to do. When we connected, we knew he would fall down. I am the real bullet train,” said Cado after that explosive finish, also promising to rule the Super Welterweights in a private chat with BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid.
