BRAVE Combat Federation had an unforgettable 2019, as the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world once again traveled around the globe with 12 events in 12 different countries. Several world-class fighters tested their skills against top international talent, and some of those fights ended in amazing finishes.
Several top-flight contests were ended in submission, and to celebrate the year, BRAVE Combat Federation has compiled the top submissions of 2019. The video (which can be seen in the link below) starts with Cleiton “Predator” surprising then-champion Luan “Miau” Santiago and locking in a quick rear-naked choke in their title fight back at BRAVE CF 25, which took place in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais.
The video also highlights the two biggest submissions of BRAVE CF 26, as well as Khamzat Chimaev putting Mzwandile Hlongwa to sleep in one of the most impressive arm-triangle chokes of the year.
At BRAVE CF 28, John Brewin earned the biggest victory of his career by making Maciej Gierzsewski tap to his armbar in the main event of BRAVE Combat Federation’s debut in Romania.
Elsewhere, there were huge submission victories for Sam Patterson, Phil Hawes, and Daniel “Willycat” Santos.
