Guram relishes bout against home country hero
Guram Kutateladze is weeks away from the fight of his life, as the BRAVE CF Lightweight contender gets ready to take off to Brazil for BRAVE CF 35, where he will have the chance to dethrone reigning world champion Cleiton “Predator” in the champ’s own backyard on March 28th. And “The Georgian Viking” is eager to make an impression and get out of Brazil with his win streak intact and a shiny new world title belt of his own.
Through his social media, Kutateladze has pledged all respect for the country of Brazil but claimed he was the “hungriest fighter” and deserved to walk away with the belt. “Always going to be an underdog, the hungriest animal, the hungriest lion, the hungriest wolf, the hungriest warrior, call it whatever you want.
I love this challenge, fighting a Brazilian on his own soil in Brazil. With all the respect to Brazilian people, but I’m coming for that belt, I deserve it more than anyone, I worked for it more than anyone, I sacrifice more than anyone, I got a stronger purpose and I got bigger why”, cried out Guram.
The challenger became a top contender by beating two of Brazil’s biggest fighters inside the BRAVE CF roster. He made his debut and beat Erick “Indio Brabo”, back at BRAVE CF 16, in Abu Dhabi, and then credentialed himself for a title shot by brutally knocking out Felipe Silva at BRAVE CF 29, in Bahrain.
Now, he faces Cleiton “Predator” for the title in the main event of BRAVE CF 35, which is the fifth trip of the fastest-growing organization in the world to the spiritual home of MMA, after two shows each in Curitiba and Belo Horizonte.
