On August 18, 2018, Jeremy “The Juggernaut” Pacatiw, 22, of Baguio City, Philippines competed in his sixth Brave Combat Federation fight at “Brave 14,” which took place at the Omnisports Indoor Club in Tangier, Morocco. It was a victorious one as he defeated Keith “Killa” Lee, 21, of Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.
The win was via split decision after three five-minute rounds. Two of the three judges scored the bout 29-28 in favor of Pacatiw while the third one scored it 29-28 in favor of Lee.
Before facing Lee at “Brave 14” in Morocco, Pacatiw previously represented the Philippines in Bahrain, India, Brazil and Indonesia. The bantamweight fighter from Team Lakay participated in “Brave 2,” “Brave 5,” “Brave 8,” “Brave 9” and “Brave 12.”
Pacatiw is the only fighter from Philippines to be included in the card of “Brave 14,” first global mixed martial arts event hosted in Africa. Both he and Lee made weight during the weigh-ins.
Lee was accompanied by his brother Kevin “The Motown Phenom” Lee, 25, a UFC fighter. On the other hand, Pacatiw was accompanied by Team Lakay founder and head coach Mark Sangiao.
The American contender had set one of the toughest camps under the guidance of his brother bringing forth world class sparring partners at Xtreme Couture. But for Pacatiw, it was an advantage to train alongside reigning Brave CF Bantamweight Champion Stephen “The Sniper” Loman, 23, who is also from Team Lakay.
The “Brave 14” bout was critical for Pacatiw’s career. He was returning to the cage after two disappointing losses in Brave CF.
By defeating Keith at “Brave 14,” Pacatiw improved his professional MMA record to 4 wins and 3 losses. On the other hand, Keith now has 2 wins and 3 losses.
Meanwhile, Brave CF president Mohammed Shahid has announced that plans are in progress to host Brave CF in the Philippines. A victory for Pacatiw added momentum for the initiative to the country.
