BRAVE Combat Federation Lightweight world champion Cleiton “Predator” Silva decided to spice things up a bit ahead of his first title defense, scheduled for March 28 in Brazil against Guram Kutateladze. Speaking directly to the title challenger, Predator vowed to finish BRAVE CF 35’s main event and found time to jab at his fellow countryman Felipe Silva, Kutateladze’s last opponent.
“Hey Guram, here’s the deal, bro. At my home, I’m the boss, brother. You wanna take it (the belt), come smooth, because I’m no Felipe Silva, got it? To get to me you will need to sweat a lot. I will knock you out or submit you, because at my place, in Brazil, I am the only boss, mate. I am the Predator and I’m waiting for you!”, the world champion said.
With a professional record of 15 wins and only two losses, Cleiton “Predator” Silva is currently on a three-win streak, all of them via TKO or submission, including his last performance, in which he captured the Lightweight title after submitting Luan “Miau” Santiago.
Guram Kutateladze holds a pro record of 11 wins and only two losses. The Swedish won his last eight bouts, with his last loss coming half a decade ago. In his most recent appearance at BRAVE CF, Kutateladze knocked out Felipe Silva in only 44 seconds, paving the way for a title shot.
BRAVE CF 35 marks the fifth edition of the fastest-growing MMA promotion in the world to Brazil. The event, headlined by Predator vs Kutateladze, will take place on March 28, in Balneário Camboriú. In the co-main event of the evening, Leonardo Mafra takes on Carl Booth. The event will also count with the first two matches of BRAVE CF’s Flyweight World Title Tournament: Marcel Adur vs Malcom Gordon and Jose “Shorty” Torres vs Matheus Nicolau.
