Brave CF 45 Results: Roa Tops Entwistle After Injury

On Thursday, Nov. 19, Brave Combat Federation hosted its 45th event from Bahrain.

The event was originally slated to take place on Thursday, Nov. 12, but the event was postponed due to the passing of Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Prime Minister of Bahrain.

In the night’s main event, UFC veteran Ian Entwistle returned from a four-year layoff to take on Colombia’s Dumar Roa in a 150-pound catchweight. Entwistle went 1-2 inside the Octagon, but left the promotion after multiple health issues. The British fighters had scored seven submission wins in his nine career victories. Roa, meanwhile, had bounced around the international scene, compiling eight stoppages due to strikes in his 14 wins.


The action began at 11 a.m. ET and can be watched live above via Fite TV pay-per-view.
