Eldar Eldarov, BRAVE Combat Federation’s Super Lightweight world champion, is the latest guest in Mohamed Al Hosani’s popular podcast Mo Hasani 360, the biggest MMA show in the Middle East. During the chat, Hosani took us on a journey from Eldar’s beginnings to current day success and got an up-close and personal chat with the BRAVE CF champion. He spoke at length about his beginnings in Dagestan, the progress through wrestling and combat sambo, and finally, his rise to become the best Super Lightweight in the world of mixed martial arts.
Also working as Team Bahrain head coach in MMA, Eldarov has an almost unblemished record, with his only loss coming early in his career in a short-notice fight against friend Khabib Nurmagomedov. Eldar spoke about his friendship with Khabib during his appearance at Mo Hosani Podcast.
Another subject at hand was Eldar’s rise to become one of the biggest names in BRAVE Combat Federation’s history as the Super Lightweight powerhouse has become synonymous with the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world with a legendary run at Lightweight before becoming the Super Lightweight world champion.
Finally, Eldarov spoke about the KHK MMA head coach job, which is responsible to identify raw talent around the globe and nurture it to become the next generation of professional fighters and MMA stars.
“We started with professional fighters representing KHK MMA, but now we want to form them. We are using the amateur scene to develop our own athletes. A great example of this is Ramazan Gitinov. He came to us with a strong background in wrestling but no other disciplines. He is now the number one pound-for-pound fighter in amateur MMA. We want to take the amateurs and put them with a great chance of making it as professional stars”, explained Coach Eldarov.
