The epic BRAVE CF 51: The Future is Here has a new co-main event. Originally scheduled to face Denis Maher in a three-round Super Welterweight bout, Fernando Gonzalez has been forced to pull due to an undisclosed injury.
BRAVE CF officials acted fast and confirmed that the undefeated Rinat Sagyntay will step up for Gonzalez and face local hero Maher in Minsk, Belarus.
Holding a perfect professional record of 9 wins and no losses, Rinat Sagyntay is one of the most accomplished Kazakh fighters nowadays, having dominated the local MMA scene at age 24.
The Shymkent native is a proven finisher, with all of his professional wins coming by way of knockout or submission. Coming into BRAVE CF 51, ‘’Kaisar’’, who has 5 KOs and 4 subs under his belt, is looking to keep the streak going.
Across the cage, Denis Maher is one of the most prominent Belarusian sportsmen, and has finally earned his way to the international circuit, making the most important fight of his professional career in front of his home crowd.
Holding a professional record of 7 wins and no losses, with only one decision, Maher will have a true “battle of the undeafeated” against Sagyntay and only one of them will leave the BRAVE CF Arena with their record still intact.
BRAVE CF 51: The Future Is Here takes place on June 4, in Minsk, Belarus, the 22nd nation to host a BRAVE Combat Federation card. The night will be headlined by the Lightweight bout between the former world champion Lucas “Mineiro” Martins and Marcel Grabinski and is hosted in association with Rukh Sport Management. The show will host some of the top international stars descending upon Belarus to face off against the country’s finest martial artists.
