Jeremy “The Juggernaut” Pacatiw, 23, has earned his sixth victory in BRAVE Combat Federation. Training out of the Team Lakay gym in La Trinidad, Benguet, Philippines, the Igorot mixed martial artist was one of the winners at “BRAVE CF 33.”

Featuring 11 professional MMA bouts, BRAVE CF held  “BRAVE CF 33” at the Prince Abdullah Al Faisal Stadium Sports Hall in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on December 27, 2019. In the ninth bout of the evening, Pacatiw and Felipe Efrain, 25, of Sao Paulo, Brazil battled it out at a catch weight of 64kg.

The catchweight bout did not go the distance. The referee put a stop to the contest after 1 minute and 10 seconds in the first round when Pacatiw knocked out Efrain via ground and pound.

 

“BRAVE CF 33” marked Pacatiw’s 10th bout in BRAVE CF. This means he is still the fighter with the most bouts in the Bahrain-based MMA promotion.

Pacatiw’s ninth BRAVE CF bout was at “BRAVE CF 29,” which took place at the Khalifa Sports City Arena in Isa Town, Bahrain on November 15, 2019. He lost via unanimous decision to Ali “The Royal Fighter” al-Qaisi, 29, of Jordan in a bantamweight bout.

Winning at “BRAVE CF 33” improved the professional MMA record of Pacatiw to 10 wins and 4 losses. On the other hand, Efrain now has 13 wins, 6 losses, 0 draw and 1 No Contest.

This is not the first time Efrain lost to a Team Lakay fighter. On November 16, 2018, he unsuccessfully challenged Pacatiw’s teammate Stephen “The Sniper” Loman, 23, the reigning BRAVE CF Bantamweight World Champion, at “BRAVE CF 18” at the Khalifa Sports City Arena in Isa Town, Bahrain.

 

Pacatiw has been competing professionally since 2015. He joined BRAVE CF in 2016.

The first five opponents Pacatiw defeated in BRAVE CF were Chaitanya “Dangerous” Gavali, 31, of India; Thiago Dela Coleta, 22, of Brazil; Keith “Killa” Lee, 23, of the United States; Uloomi “Kratos” Karim, 28, of Pakistan and Mark “Ruthless” Alcoba, 27, of the Philippines.
