Brave Combat Federation 29: Jeremy Pacatiw of Team Lakay Loses to Ali Al Qaisi

Jeremy Pacatiw, a mixed martial artist under the Team Lakay banner lost his most recent fight at the Khalifa Sports City Arena in Bahrain on November 15, 2019. The 26-year-old fighter went the distance against Ali Al Qaisi of Jordan. The unanimous decision victory was awarded to the Jordanian.

Pacatiw started strong in the first round with vicious leg kicks which are signature moves by fighters coming from Team Lakay. In the same round, Al Qaisi scored a takedown and mixed it up with submission attempts.

The second and third rounds were more of the same with Al Qaisi controlling most of the fight with his takedowns and top control. Pacatiw was winning the exchanges on their feet but the tide turns whenever Al Qaisi goes for and secures a takedown. For his part, Pacatiw never stopped dishing strikes even when he is down on the mat. He was able to land punches and elbows from down under.

The judges awarded the victory to Al Qaisi. With the victory, Al Qaisi is a step closer to becoming a top contender for the Brave Combat Federation bantamweight strap which is currently held by Stephen Loman, who happens to be a Team Lakay fighter thus a teammate of Pacatiw.

With the loss, Pacatiw's three-win streak comes to a halt. Prior to facing Al Qaisi, Pacatiw had victories over Keith Lee, Uloomi Karim, and Mark Alcoba.
