Dec Larkin served as the referee. Lutterbach came out with his signature power jab, followed by powerful right crosses that hurt Cotruta early on. 

While Cotruta did well to counter with a flurry of punches, it was not enough to rattle Lutterbach, who was impeccable with his timing and efficacy. The German-Brazilian contender unleashed a hook from hell that sent his Moldovan opponent straight to the canvas.

Larkin stopped the super lightweight contest after 2 minutes and 53 seconds in the first round. He raised the hand of Lutterbach, who was declared the winner via technical knockout via punches.


“I had fun tonight,” Lutterbach said right after his victory. “It was a good fight for me. All my respect to Mihail.”

“He is truly a tough guy,” Lutterbach said of Cotruta. “But tonight was my night. I hope I can fight for the title next.”

“Eldar, I wish you a good recovery for your shoulder,” Lutterbach said. “I hope you can get better soon so that we can make the fight happen.”

“Thank you to all who came to support me,” Lutterbach continued. “I am so happy and so blessed. All I want next is the BRAVE CF title fight next.”
