Bagautinov Dominates at BRAVE CF 46, Earns Spot in the BRAVE CF Flyweight Tournament

Ali Bagautinov will be joining the BRAVE CF Flyweight Tournament, which will crown the promotion’s first Flyweight world champion. The “Puncher King” secured his spot after beating the rising star Oleg Lichkovakha via unanimous decision in the co-main event of the evening.

With so much on the line, Ali Bagautinov kicked things off with full force, taking Lichkovakha down with a single leg, and putting a lot of pressure over his opponent. From there, it was Bagautinov’s monologue, with a significant amount of damage inflicted in the ground-and-pound.

Round two was barely on and there they were on the ground, once again after a perfectly-timed single leg takedown by Bagautinov. But this time, Lichkovakha not only survived, he managed to turn the table, stand up, and get himself a takedown over “The Puncher King”.

But the third round was pretty much a repetition of what was seen during the first five minutes, with Bagautinov on top, transitioning from strikes to submission attempts, and completely dominating.

After the win that earned him a spot in the Flyweight Tournament, Bagautinov send a message to one of his potential foes within the bracket. ““I can go through Dustin Ortiz. I will introduce him to my right hand, right into his face!”, he said.
