BRAVE Combat Federation has officially announced another high-profile matchup for its inaugural event in Konin, Poland on September 25th as Ismail “The Austrian Wonderboy” Naurdiev is penciled to lock horns with Olli “The Amazing” Santalahti on the highly-anticipated BRAVE CF 54 card.
Naurdiev, a former BRAVE CF Super Welterweight World Championship contender who holds a 20-5 professional record in the sport, is an exceptional grappler and a well-rounded striker capable of ending bouts quickly and decisively.
The 25-year-old standout from Salzburg, Austria prides himself in being an exciting competitor, willing to please the crowd by always seeking the highlight-reel finish.
“The Austrian Wonderboy” will need the full force of his strength as he squares off against Santalahti in an incredible showdown of powerful super welterweights.
On the other hand, Santalahti owns a 12-3 slate in a prizefighting career that started in 2012. He is a high-skilled grappler with a solid set of striking techniques.
The 27-year-old Finnish fighter was rarely opposed inside the cage, using his long limbs to wreak havoc from range with his striking, as well as pose a constant threat of submissions on the mat.
Santalahti is on the trail to get a date with BRAVE CF Super Welterweight World Champion Jarrah Hussein “The Jordanian Lion” Al-Silawi, but first, he’ll have to get past the talented Naurdiev.
BRAVE CF will be announcing more bouts for BRAVE CF 54, which is headlined by a grudge match between BRAVE CF Lightweight World Champion Amin “Fierceness” Ayoub and Ahmed “The Butcher” Amir.
