Dusseldorf, Germany’s Joilton Lutterbach earns 1st BRAVE CF win, beats Mohamed Grabinski in Bonn


Joilton “Peregrino” Santos Lutterbach, 29, of Dusseldorf, Germany has earned his first victory in BRAVE Combat Federation. Born in Campina Grande, Paraiba, Brazil, the veteran mixed martial artist is of German and Brazilian descent.

In association with Germany-based MMA promotion National Fighting Championship, BRAVE CF held “BRAVE CF 61” at Maritim Hotel in Bonn, Germany on August 6, 2022. In the main event of the evening, Lutterbach fought his fellow Dusseldorf resident Marcel Grabinski, 30, in the super lightweight division.


As soon as the bell rang for the first round, Lutterbach released powerful jabs while Grabinski seemed lethargic. After those first exchanges, Grabinski suffered a bloody cut above his right eye which was the cue for Lutterbach to wrap things up.

Lutterbach continued to power his jabs through Grabinski’s raised guard before a telling right and left hook dropped the latter. The former pounced on the latter and referee Dec Larkin called a stop to the fight before the end of the first round.

It was a rematch between Lutterbach and Grabinski. On December 16, 2017, the former defeated the latter via unanimous decision at “German MMA Championship 13” in Dusseldorf.

After beating Grabinski for the second time, Lutterbach now has professional MMA record to 36 wins, 10 losses and 1 No Contest. The winner is now looking forward to challenging reigning BRAVE CF Super Lightweight Champion Eldar “Khan” Eldarov, 30, of Bahrain.


“BRAVE CF 61” marked Lutterbach’s BRAVE CF debut. In his post-fight interview, he said, “Eldarov, I am coming for you!”

Currently, Eldarov has 13 wins and 1 loss. The first and the only time he defended his BRAVE CF Super Lightweight Championship belt was on January 16, 2021 at “BRAVE CF 46” in Sochi, Russia where he defeated Leonardo “Macarrao” Mafra Texeira, 33, of Santa Catarina, Balneario Camboriu, Brazil via technical knockout due to doctor stoppage.
