Training out of Gladiator MMA in Amman, Jordan, Jarrah “The Jordanian Lion” Al-Selawe, 26, is the Brave Combat Federation Welterweight World Champion again. He regained the title he once held at “Brave 27,” earning his seventh victory in the Bahrain-based mixed martial arts promotion Brave Combat Federation.
Brave CF held “Brave 27” at the Mubadala Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates with 10 MMA bouts. In the main bout of the evening, Al-Selawe challenged then reigning Brave CF Welterweight World Champion Abdoul “The Conqueror” Abdouraguimov, 23, who is representing Team Ross Dela Riva of Nantes, France.
Tomasz Bronder served as the referee. Al-Selawe and Abdouraguimov survived four five-minute rounds.
However, Abdouraguimov was not able to answer the bell before the fifth round. In the end, Bronder raised the hand of Al-Selawe, who was declared the winner via technical knockout via corner stoppage.
Winning at “Brave 27” improved the professional MMA record of Al-Selawe now has 14 wins and 3 losses. On the other hand, Abdouraguimov to 10 wins, 1 loss, 0 draw and 1 No Contest.
In the co-main event of the evening, Alex Martinez, 25, of Paraguay and Canada maintained his undefeated professional MMA record. He knocked out Anas “The Moroccan Sensation” Siraj Mounir, 33, Morocco in the lightweight division.
On April 19, 2019, Abdouraguimov challenged Al-Selawe, the then reigning Brave CF Welterweight World Champion, at “Brave 23” at the Martyr Rashid Al-Ziyoud Hall Boxing Arena in Amman, Jordan. The French-Russian challenger won via split decision.
“You know, last time I felt like I was targeting a decision win,” Al-Selawe stated prior to the “Brave 27” fight night. “I didn’t pull the trigger. This is a message for Abdoul.”
“For the rematch, I’m going for the knockout,” the Jordanian mixed martial artist continued. “I expect the support of the Arab fans for the event. I’d like everyone in our MMA community to go see my rematch.”
