If you are a fan of jam-packed main cards and title fights, then you need to tune into Brave CF 50, which will be held in Bahrain in the early hours of Thursday morning. There are an unbelievable 17 fights set to go on the main card, the final two of which are title fights, so a ton of action to take in here. In terms of making predictions, we have decided to narrow things down to the final 6 fights of the main card, as those look to be the best of the bunch. Let’s get right to it so you can place your bets against their MMA odds.
MMA Betting Preview for BRAVE CF 50
Kevin Ruart Vs Louis Glismann
Our first preview of the night is Catchweight bout between a pair of in form fighters. Ruart comes into this bout with a 9-2 record, but he is also on a run that has seen him win 7 in a row, including back-to-back wins in Brave CF. Glismann is coming off an opening round loss his last time out, but he had won 7 in a row prior to that defeat, so he cannot be counted out. I have Ruart winning this one by decision in a close fight.
Issa Isakov Vs Mohamed Grabinski
We have a pair of Featherweights up next in a matchup that sees one fighter with a good deal more experience in the octagon. Isakov is 6-1 in the early part of his career after bouncing back to win after taking his first defeat. Grabinski has a ton more experience and comes in with a 20-6 career mark that includes 6 wins in his last 7 fights. I think that experience serves Grabinski well, as I like him to come away with the KO win.
Velimurad Alkhasov Vs Zach Makosvsky
Next up is a Flyweight bout where we once again have a bit of an experience disparity. Alkhasov is still early in his pro career and is 7-1 to this point. He showed some grit in bouncing back from his first loss to get a win last time out. Makovsky is 21-9 and has been around a bit, but he is on a bit of a slide of late, going just 2-4 in his last 6 fights, although he did win his last one. I am going with the younger fighter here and taking Alkhasov by decision.
Ali Bagautinov Vs Dustin Ortiz
We have a Flyweight bout set to go before we get to the title fights, and it’s a good one. Bagautinov usually fights as a Bantamweight and is coming into this one with a 19-7 record, which includes a win in his first outing with Brave CF. Ortiz is a fighter that you probably know from his time in the UFC, and while this is a step down in class, it could also mean a return to winning, although he may need to go the distance to do it.
Mohammad Fakhreddine Vs Mohamed Said Maalem
The first title fight of the night is for the vacant Light Heavyweight title, with one of these fighters looking for his second belt. Fakhreddine is already the Middleweight champion in Brave CF, but he is moving up a division to try and add another belt. That is not going to be an easy task against a very good fighter in Maalem, who is 11-3 overall and working on a 6-fight win streak. I have Maalem winning this one by KO.
Jarrah Al-Silawi Vs Ismail Naurdiev
We close out the evening with a Welterweight bout that sees the current champion make his first defense of the belt. Al-Silawi is 15-3 and looking to defend the title after winning it in a unanimous decision against Melvin van Suijdam. Naurdiev is 2-2 in his last 4 fights, but do not let that fool you, as those losses came on fights with the UFC. This is a seasoned fighter who should do well at this level and who I believe will end the night as the champion.
