Training out of Espoon Kehähait in Espoo, Finland, Abdul “Abba” Hussein, 21, was one of the winners at “Brave 22: Storm of Warriors.” It was his second victory in Bahrain-based mixed martial arts promotion Brave Combat Federation.

Featuring nine MMA bouts, “Brave 22: Storm of Warriors” took place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines on March 15, 2019. In the third bout of the evening, Hussein competed in the flyweight division against Jon Chris “Happy Feet” Corton, 26, who is training out of La Trinidad, Benguet, Philippines.

Early on, Hussein made an attempt to lock in a triangle choke but Corton survived. The Palestinian-Finnish contender was very persistent leaving his Filipino opponent no choice but to tap out.

Referee Tomasz Bronder put a stop to the contest after 3 minutes and 14 seconds in the first round when Hussein submitted his Corton via ninja choke. It was the second submission of the evening.

Winning at “Brave 22: Storm of Warriors” improved Hussein’s professional MMA record to 6 wins and 1 loss. On the other hand, Corton now has 6 wins and 4 losses.

Hussein is now riding a two-bout winning streak. He has been competing professionally since 2016.

“Brave 22: Storm of Warriors” marked Hussein’s third bout in Brave CF. On the other hand, it was Corton’s second outing in the promotion.

Training out of Espoon Kehähait in Espoo, Finland, Hussein was submitted by Nawras “The Honey Badger” Abzakh, 26, of Jordan via guillotine choke at “Brave CF 10” on March 2, 2018. On December 8, 2018, the Palestinian-Finnish MMA fighter defeated Sylvester “Gladiator” Chipfumbu, 26, of Zimbabwe via unanimous decision at “Brave 19: South Africa” at Sun City Resort in North West, South Africa.

When Hussein was a young boy, he and his family moved to Finland. In 2015, he represented the country at the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation European Open Championships in Birmingham, England, United Kingdom.
