WATCH: Luan Santiago Scores Violent Spinning Elbow KO At Brave CF 23 (VIDEO)

Luan Santiago is the new lightweight champion of Brave Combat Federation following an incredibly violent knockout at Brave CF 23. Santiago was taking on then-titleholder Abdul-Kareem Al-Selwady when he landed a perfectly timed spinning elbow. The picture perfect elbow left Al-Selwady immediately crumbling to the mat and his face a bloody mess.
AD Sports took to social media to share the highlight of the stunning finish.

The fight took place in Amman, Jordan on Friday, April 19. Al-Selwady was the local favorite entering the bout, but Santiago did not let the crowd support for his opponent get to his head.

“This fight I tried to not do so much trash talking as I normally do, due to the fact that I consider Al-Selwady to be a great competitor. It was the first time that I fought someone with such immense support. Practically all of Jordan supports him. I’d like everyone to give him a round of applause. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him, he’s done a great job with Brave,” Santiago said, as transcribed by Bloody Elbow.

“I always say that Bahrain (where Brave was founded) is my second home. And now I think I have a third home. From the moment I stepped in Jordan, everyone has been so nice and welcoming, and I’ve been blown away by the support you guys give your fighters. I would like to fight here one day again, but this time I will want you all behind me.”

With the win, Santiago advanced to 14-3 as a pro. The 24-year-old last lost in April 2018 to UFC veteran Lucas Martins.
