BRAVE Cf 79’s co-main event came to a sudden and unfortunate ending after Janos Csukas injured his knee throwing the very first strike of the fight.
The Romanian heavyweight, Csukas, circled his opponent, Pavel Dailidko, before initiating some action with a low kick that missed its mark. Csukas then momentarily hopped on one leg, but it quickly became apparent that he had injured his kicking leg. As Csukas dropped to the floor clutching his knee, the referee made the decision to call off the fight.
This turn of events is truly unfortunate for Csukas, who had hoped to end his two-fight losing streak with a victory in Bahrain. On the other hand, Dailidko’s triumph extends his impressive win streak in BRAVE CF to three, further solidifying his undefeated record and maintaining his 100% finishing rate by KO/TKO.
