Champion Ottman Azaitar presents superstar Cristiano Ronaldo with Brave belt

Newly-crowned Brave Lightweight champion Ottman Azaitar is in Abu Dhabi to watch the soccer World Club Cup and cheer for his personal friend, superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. And to help the legendary portuguese achieve his goals of winning back-to-back trophies, “The Bulldozer” had a special gift: he presented his friend with his Brave belt during a dinner party before Ronaldo’s Real Madrid faced Al Jazira in the semifinals.

Azaitar’s friendship with the Ballon D’Or winner was reflected during his last fight. While walking out to face Alejandro “Pato” Martínez for the inaugural Brave Lightweight title at Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions, the Moroccan phenom wore his Cristiano’s autographed Real Madrid shirt.

And the jersey proved to be a good luck charm as Azaitar dominated the stand-up department against the Mexican grappler and showed improved jiu-jitsu defense to avoid submissions from his rival on his way to a third-round Knockout.

“I wore his shirt during my walk-out for my title fight and promised that if I won the belt, I would dedicate it to the athlete I look up the most. My dear title is in the best hands now”, said Azaitar.
