Toughest fight in Jarrah’s Brave CF career as he faces Ismail Naurdiev a young talented 24 year old old Welterweight looking to make a name for himself under the Brave CF promotion.

Jarrah Hussein Al-Silawi resigned with Brave CF, Defeating Naurdiev will show the world he’s one of the most underrated Welterweight fighters on the planet.

“I’ve beaten guys that have gone on to the UFC,” Al-Silawi told MMA Junkie. “The fact that he’s an ex-UFC fighter gives me an opportunity to prove that I can beat any fighter that comes from any organization. Ismail has a great record and was in the UFC, and that just gives me motivation and reason to beat him.”

Defeating a high level Middle Eastern Welterweight prospect will do wonders for his career moving forward if he wants to sign with UFC or sign a deal with Bellator or One Championship which would be sick to see!!

Many people are cheering for Jarrah or seeing him as the favorite but Ismail Naurdiev is looking to prove everyone wrong, Stealing the show in the Brave CF 50 Main Event.

Brave CF debut with a bang, Dominant performance, Knockout win. Ismail Naurdiev nickname is “Austrian Wonderboy” for a reason.

‘‘’Honestly, I didn’t watch his fights, just a couple of moments. But I think he’s more of a striker. I saw his wrestling is really bad, and he has some skills in jiu-jitsu, but not that high of a level. He’s more of a striker, he likes to kick a lot. He has basic striking, but nothing I haven’t seen before, so I’m not surprised’’, says Naurdiev.

https://bravecf.com/news/ismail-naurdiev-fires-shots-at-champ-al-silawi-ahead-of-historic-brave-cf-50-bad-wrestler-basic-striker-

Naurdiev will show he’s the better fighter, Stealing the throne and become the next GREAT Super welterweight champion.

Jarrah Hussein Al-Silawi vs Ismail Naurdiev can be a UFC prelim fight this is how good of a fight on paper this is. I have no clue who wins this fight but only way to find out is watch it on FITE TV.

Winner vs Paul Hughes sounds like a plan. Like Paul Hughes odds against Charriere the highly touted Featherweight prospect and STAR of Cage Warriors. Jordan Vucenic vs Paul Hughes be a sweet fight to watch, Hughes more quicker. Appreciate the striking ability from Hughes that can lead to a Featherweight title win.

“I’m not like I deserve that title shot let’s not beat around the bush like one more fight as a I say that’s this is a good guy against Hendin so I deserve that title shot and I will be getting it.”

Masterful Performance by Diego Lopes Lux Fight League 12

Finished watching Lux Fight League 12 Main Event Diego Lopes vs Masio Fullen on UFC Fight Pass. One man domination by Diego Lopes. MASTERFUL Performance by the Brazilian Featherweight prospect.

Lux Fight League Featherweight Champion Diego Lopes risen in value, Brazilian prospect rankings with that performance. Not exaggerating it was a GREAT performance.

Impressed me with his striking, Picking the right shots mixing with the pressure!! Pressuring Fullen to the cage with jumping knees. Diego Lopes on the ground looks like a world class jiu jitsu artist. Leading to a beautiful armbar in the third round.

Best performance by Diego Lopes, Defending his Lux Fight League Featherweight title for the 2nd time.

Diego Lopes born in Brazil, Hot bed since the beginning of MMA, Diego Lopes is part of the next generation of Brazilian MMA fighters. Future UFC/Bellator Featherweight Title contender.

Manel Kape What’s Next after Nicolau Loss?

Manel Kape one of the biggest free agent signings for 2020, Many hardcore fans extremely excited for Manel Kape UFC debut. Former Rizin Bantamweight Champion.

Now Kape with all the hype is on a two fight losing streak, However Kape in my opinion won his second bout against Matheus Nicolau. Lost first round but finally decided to throw a little bit, Leading to Kape winning the second and third round. Stuffing the Nicolau takedowns, Showing his takedown defense improved since his UFC debut.

“It was a close fight. I’m not here to judge, my job is to fight here until the end,” Nicolau sad. “I’m just happy to be here with the victory – flyweight division, I’m back.

“I feel that I could do a lot more, but he caught me in the second round, it was trouble for me.”

https://www.scmp.com/sport/martial-arts/mixed-martial-
arts/article/3125367/ufc-manel-kape-disbelief-controversial-split

Kape Too Talented

However Manel Kape NEEDS to throw more, Kape is talented. Must be nervous about fighting for UFC, Afraid to get hit. I don’t know what his deal is but he can beat these guys no doubt about it. Lack of confidence in the Octagon, Biggest stage as possible!

I hope he listens to his head coaches Javier Mendez, Mike Swick(AKA Thailand) about pushing the pace more because one more loss and the UFC will cut him. Not like he’s an exciting fighter. Doesn’t throw a lot of punches.

On the other hand if Kape actually throws like he did in the 2nd & 3rd round he can 100% fight for a Flyweight Title. Drives fans like myself and hardcore fans crazy that he doesn’t push the pace and attack.

American Kickboxing Academy speaks highly of him, All believe he can be a champion.

“He works so hard and deserves this. Not only is he one of the hardest workers at the gym, but also one of the most loyal. That’s hard to find these days,” Swick added.

“We have no doubt he will be a UFC Champion one day,” he concluded.

https://www.thephuketnews.com/aka-thailand-star-manel-kape-is-ufc-bound-75621.php

Kape vs Tyson Nam or Jordan Espinosa

That being said Manel Kape former Rizin Bantamweight Champion, Main Event Attraction. Early finisher for Rizin can transfer those early finishes to UFC.

Make it or break it time for Manel Kape. Fight this summer or spring against two tough opponents. Tyson Nam or Jordan Espinosa. Both fighters coming off losses. Tyson Nam fighting for UFC since 2017. Last fight was against Matt Schnell while Jordan Espinosa lost against Tim Elliot at UFC 259.

Kape vs Espinosa fun fight to watch on the prelims. Jordan Espinosa alumni of the Dana White Contender Series.

Give Kape some confidence against TOUGH flyweights, Learning from his mistakes. Key is throwing more strikes, Earn an obvious unanimous victory from the judges or knockout his opponent. Leading to 50k bonus for Manel Kape.

I hope Manel Kape learns his lesson and looks his best since his Rizin 20 performance against Kai Asakura!

Next Fight for Nasrat Hapqarast?

MMA Fighters UFC Needs to Sign 2021

MMA fans disrespect Non UFC Fighters because they don’t fight for UFC, Not beating world class fighters every time they fight. I understand why but there’s fighters in Major promotions from Bellator, One Championship, PFL, Rizin, KSW, Combate Americas, ACA, Brave CF who can defeat top ten UFC fighters right now!! Who are they? I made a wish list of fighters UFC needs to sign in 2021.

Patricio “Pitbull” Friere

Arguably the BEST Featherweight in the world, Bellator Featherweight Champion. Six Successful title defenses overall, Most wins in Bellator history with 19. Six Fight winning streak defeating world class fighters from current UFC Fighter and rival Michael Chandler, former Bellator champion Daniel Straus, KOTC former champion Juan Archuleta.

Patricio Pitbull is a world class fighter, Semi-Finalist right now against Emmanuel Sanchez in the Bellator Featherweight Grand Prix. Defeats Sanchez than faces a future STAR in AJ McKee. Pitbull if he defeats AJ McKee, Grand Prix champion.

Pitbull needs to sign with UFC and show the world he’s the best Featherweight in the world. Patricio Pitbull vs Max Holloway, Pitbull vs Ortega, Pitbull vs Zabit. Dream come true for Pitbull to sign with UFC.

Douglas Lima

Douglas Lima easily one of the BEST Welterweights in the world, Since his loss to Rory MacDonald radically improved and had a dominant performance against Rory MacDonald in the second match. Knocking out Michael “Venom” Page. Winning the Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix and the million dollar prize.

Lima started with Bellator in 2011, Successful career with Bellator but NOW it’s time to sign with UFC, Winning the Bellator Welterweight title, Following same route as Michael Chandler.

33 years old in the prime of his career few more years of world class fighting left. No better place than the UFC.

Vadim Nemkov

Vadim Nemkov arguable as the #1 Light Heavyweight in the world. Winning and dominating his fight against Ryan Bader. Showing how talented Nemkov is by defeating Ryan Bader. Masterclass performance. Impressive winning streak of Phil Davis, Liam McGeary, Rafael Carvalho and Phillipe Lins. Defeating former world champions.

Boost up in competition, UFC believed in him. Now time to take a step back and face a top 15-top 20 Bantamweight…. Face Nathaniel Wood.

Nathaniel Wood vs Casey Kenney happened at UFC 254, Prelims bout. High paced, Constant action fight that went three rounds. My opinion Nathaniel Wood won that fight by split decision, Judges scored it wrong.

Time for a rematch, Two HIGH LEVEL Bantamweight rising stars facing each other in the summer of 2021. Pay-Per View Bout or UFC Fight Night. Rewarded a fight of the night bonus.

UFC definitely can tell a story about the controversial fight, Wood and Kenney trash talk on social media, MMA interviews. Building the fight MUCH AS POSSIBLE before the fight happens.

UFC commentators, UFC analyst definitely will be excited for this fight, FIGHT of the NIGHT potential.

Nathaniel Wood remains one of my favorite fighters. Yes he lost to John Dodson but was winning the rounds till he made a mistake in the third round, Dodson being a veteran took advantage of the opportunity and knocked out the “Prospect”.

Brad Pickett’s protégé Nathaniel Wood will show his advancements from the Kenney fight at UFC 259. Challenging the Nine time Judo Champion. High School wrestling champion in Indiana.
