The battle between India and Pakistan inside the BRAVE Combat Federation Arena ended with the Indian flag waving around the MMA cage, as Mohammad Farhad, from Maharashtra, defeated Pakistan’s Kareem Uloomi via knockout in the second round.
One of the most anticipated matches of BRAVE CF 47: Asian Domination, event held this Thursday (11) at the Arad Fort, in Arad, Kingdom of Bahrain, Mohammed Farhad vs Kareem Uloomi quickly proved why it was drawing so much attention.
As soon as the bell rang, the two men went for it and started trading blows in the center of the cage. Despite facing a tough and resilient opponent, Farhad’s win came through the core Indian values of skill, composure, intelligence, and lots of heart.
After almost dropping Uloomi in the first round, Farhad was caught by surprise with a hand and got himself under pressure. “Sher-e-Hind”, as he’s also known as, bravely resisted and, when the odds seemed to have turned against him, got a one-punch knockout.
Speaking after the emblematic victory, Farhad dedicated the win to his home country. “I represent 1.1 billion people, we are Indians, that’s what we are all about! It’s your strength that pushes me, I knew I could do it from the moment we stepped into the cage. Thank you!”, he said.
BRAVE Combat Federation, the premier global MMA promotion founded by His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa, from Bahrain, will hold three more events in its home nation in the upcoming weeks, culminating in the organization’s historical 50th fight night at April 1st.
