A decisive finish inside the mixed martial arts cage has always been at the top of Sam “The Future” Patterson’s priority list ever since he kick-started his professional career in 2017, but his streak of scintillating stoppages came to an end when he faced a stiff test most recently.
The 25-year-old spitfire from Walford, England went the distance with Ylies Djiroun in a classic back-and-forth encounter at BRAVE CF 51 this past June, but he managed to prevail over his opponent and eke out a three-round unanimous decision.
Though his performance against Djiroun allowed him to extend his winning streak to six fights, Patterson seeks to win over the fans again by clinching a victory either via knockout or submission when he returns to action on November 6.
Patterson is penciled to duke it out with hometown favorite Kamil Magomedov at the highly-anticipated BRAVE CF 55, which emanates from the beautiful Russian city of Rostov-on-Don.
“The finish, I’m coming to finish. I’m not a decision fighter. I always look for the finish,” he stated.
“The Future” is ascending up the organization’s lightweight ranks, but in order for him to reach the next level, he must defeat a tough opponent in Magomedov—who possesses a 14-1 slate and has not tasted defeat since 2017.
“I wasn’t expecting someone who will have a similar record of mine. It had to be at least someone with double the amount of wins that I have. I was expecting that. Kamil is a high-level opponent,” Patterson said of Magomedov.
Despite the vast difference in terms of competitive experience, Patterson believes that his physical attributes will play a pivotal factor in his three-round cage encounter against Mogomedov.
“If I go in there and do what I do, it doesn’t really matter what everyone does and whoever is in front of me,” he stressed. “My height, range, and how I use it is my advantage”
“I will go in there, beat him and double the number of wins I’ve got.
BRAVE CF 55 will be headlined by a Flyweight Tournament semi-finals clash between Jose “Shorty” Torres and Ali “Puncher King” Bagautinov in Rostov-On-Don, Russia in association with PRO FC on November 6th and will be broadcasted live at 1:00PM GMT on BRAVE CF TV (bravecftv.com)
