Ikram Aliskerov Out to Regain Middleweight Top Spot at BRAVE CF 33

Russia’s Ikram Aliskerov will have the chance to once again be on top of the list of BRAVE CF’s Middleweight contenders when he takes on Diego Gonzalez in the main event of BRAVE CF 33, which takes place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, this Friday. “Once again” is used because he was already considered the top Middleweight athlete at BRAVE CF, but decided to move to Welterweight, right before the organization crowned its first world champion.

Now that Brazilian KO artist Daniel Gaucho reigns supreme as BRAVE CF’s first-ever Middleweight title holder, Aliskerov is looking to bounce back straight into contender status. The Russian powerhouse is still the owner of the most number of wins at Middleweight, with five straight victories and feels it is his right to have a title shot upon his return to the division.

As he goes for win number six at his preferred weight-class, the focus remains on Gonzalez, who’s a crafty veteran of the sport, with three times more pro bouts than Aliskerov.
However, Ikram has shown his well-rounded game for BRAVE CF before, as he has KO and TKO wins, as well as a submission victory, which took place in his promotional debut, back at BRAVE CF 6, in 2017.

Since then, he has developed a fearsome reputation among Middleweights, which he hopes carries on as he returns to the division he once claimed as his own. An uncrowned king before, Aliskerov will settle for nothing less than a title shot after BRAVE CF 33.

The fastest-growing MMA organization in the world returns to Saudi Arabia for the end of its “Month of Madness”. After BRAVE CF 33 is over, the promotion will have traveled to three different countries in the space of a month, with South Africa, Kyrgyzstan being the other stops to BRAVE CF’s world tour.
