Cleiton “Predator” to Defend BRAVE CF title in Brazil against Guram

After shocking the world of mixed martial arts with a stellar display against Luan “Miau” Santiago, BRAVE CF Lightweight world champion Cleiton “Predator” is ready to defend his title. The Brazilian titleholder will welcome Georgian powerhouse Guram Kutateladze in the main event of BRAVE CF 35, which takes place in his home country, on Balneário Camboriú, Santa Catarina.

Cleiton has made waves since joining BRAVE Combat Federation in 2018, as he beat Ahmed Amir in a bloody war, at BRAVE CF 11. After that, he went to Colombia and submitted Argentinian Marcelo Bustos at BRAVE CF 15.

The two wins credentialed “Predator” to take on his arch-rival and then-champion Luan “Miau” Santiago. In one of the most anticipated fights in Brazilian MMA history, Cleiton shocked the country and the world of mixed martial arts by submitting Luan in less than a minute in the main event of BRAVE CF 25.

He will now have another BRAVE CF main event to look forward to as he takes on Guram Kutateladze for his Lightweight belt. “The Georgian Viking” has impressed since joining BRAVE CF, first taking dominant decision victory over Erick “Indio Brabo” at BRAVE CF 16 then following it up with a brutal KO win over Felipe Silva at BRAVE CF 29.

BRAVE CF 35 will take place once again in Brazil as the country will welcome a BRAVE Combat Federation show for the fifth time, equalling Bahrain as the nations with most BRAVE CF shows since the organization’s inception in late 2016.
