Ali Guliev Dismisses India’s Rana Rudra, Predicts First-Round Finish

Ali Guliev is a man with the confidence of an undefeated fighter. Riding a five-win streak, with all of his five professional fights ending with his hand raised, the Azerbaijani rising star will fight for the first time under the BRAVE CF banner, when he takes on India’s pride Rana Rudra at BRAVE CF 47: Asian Domination.

And Guliev is already predicting a quick finish over Rudra and has his eyes set on a showdown with superstar Muhammad Mokaev, considered as the top rising star in the world of mixed martial arts.

‘’I don’t have a lot of information about Rana, my opponent. My idea is to go out there and get the job done. To fight for BRAVE CF is a huge opportunity for Azerbaijan, and I plan to make the most of it. I will finish him inside the first round, with submission. My wish then will be to fight Muhammad Mokaev. I have challenged him several times. He hasn’t accepted but now I am BRAVE CF fighter too’’, says the young fighter, who promises BRAVE CF fans won’t forget him after his debut.

‘’My message to BRAVE Nation is that they will not forget me for a long time. They have yet to see a fighter like me in action’’.

BRAVE CF 47: Asian Domination, which is headlined by a Lightweight bout between Abdisalam Kubanychbek and Rolando Dy – the winner will be next in line for a world title shot. The show will kickstart the 21 days of mayhem, with four events in 21 days, and will empower Asian MMA event, by giving continental fighters the global platform they deserve.
