kept seeing the name Muhammad Mokaev pop up on twitter this week but paid little attention. I finally decided to see who the guy was, and turns out he's some UK based 20 year old fighter originally from Dagestan making his pro debut for Brave CF. Major prospect by the sounds of things.

His opponent is Glenn McVeigh it's his first fight too. Are Brave shows worth a look? 

Ive never watched one, but theres a lot of controversy around the promotion. Its used as abit of a promotional tool for Bahrain and its government to deflect negative press away from the region. I know very little but The Bash podcast had a journalist on who spoke about Brave when talking about media plants that turned up during the Fight Island shows. Its a process called Sports Washing.

Heres another recent article i saw about Brave regarding its terrible matchmaking:

Outside of that stuff i dont know alot else about it.

I think I will pass, I'm amazed the sentence "don't take him down" wasn't said prior

Yeah I keep seeing the name everywhere lately. I’ll have to have a proper look and see what the fuss is about. 

he won via decision, this highlight makes him look abit of a world beater but im reading that he looked good but has a long way to go.
