The judges put in overtime at Brave Combat Federation’s jam-packed card on Thursday. The main event of Brave CF 50 saw 175-pound titleholder Jarrah Hussein Al-Silawi (16-3) notching his first title defense at the expense of Ultimate Fighting Championship alum Ismail Naurdiev (20-5). “The Jordanian Lion” and Naurdiev spent most of the opening stanza studying one another, with the defending champion landing effective kicks while his opponent returned fire with repeated jabs. Al-Silawi’s gameplan started paying dividends as the bout progressed, as “The Austrian Wonderboy” started losing his footwork. The defending champion forced Naurdiev to back against the fence as he hunted his opponent down with kick after battering kick. One of Al-Silawi’s kicks seemingly injured Naurdiev, as the latter attempted a desperation takedown before collapsing while clutching his leg. “The Jordanian Lion” restrained himself from inflicting more damage, as the referee stopped the contest after 79 seconds into the second round.
