Following an exceptional 2023, Brazilian fighter Luiz Cado is set to embark on a pivotal journey against Ismail Naurdiev at BRAVE CF 81 on April 20. Headlining BRAVE Combat Federation’s return to Slovenia, their Super Welterweight bout holds significant stakes with potential title implications.

Cado, riding an impressive three-fight winning streak, remains undefeated under the BRAVE CF banner. His remarkable 2023 campaign, highlighted by two notable submission victories, has earned him nominations for prestigious year-end awards, including Submission of The Year and Fighter of The Year.

In assessing his upcoming adversary, Cado acknowledges Naurdiev's strengths while foreseeing a predominantly stand-up battle. Despite recognizing Naurdiev's adept takedown defense and technical acumen, Cado maintains confidence in his own abilities, particularly his resilience and heart.

"Ismail Naurdiev has really good takedown defense and has good takedowns as well. But I don’t think he’s that versatile when it comes to jiu-jitsu, when it comes to the ground game. He doesn’t have that many submissions up his sleeve. He has a more conservative style in this aspect. I think this fight will be a stand-up battle basically," Cado remarks.

Asserting his conviction, Cado accentuates the pivotal role of heart in their impending clash, emphasizing his unwavering determination to navigate any adversity within the cage.

"The biggest differential between us will be the heart. Both of us have a very high striking level. But he doesn’t have the same level of heart that I have. When push comes to shove, brother, my heart beats stronger," Cado states.

With a bold prediction of compelling Naurdiev to surrender under pressure, Cado aims to clinch victory and ascend closer to Super Welterweight championship contention.

As anticipation builds for BRAVE CF 81, fight enthusiasts await an exhilarating spectacle between Cado and Naurdiev, poised to deliver thrills and suspense on April 20.
