SBG Ireland striker Cian Cowley managed to score a flawless victory over Hardeep Rai at BRAVE CF 18 in Bahrain this evening.
And what a win it was.
Facing a fellow prospect in the 22-year-old Londoner Hardeep Rai with a lot to prove, Cowley moved to 2-1 as a professional with a clinic in leg-kicking and measured offense.
Slowly increasing his output as the round went on, the Irishman went in for the finish in the latter half of round one, butchering his opponent’s legs before securing top position on the ground and forcing referee Marc Goddard to call the stoppage.

nasty low kicks and GNP

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was in the building for the event supporting a teammate and while we’re sure that every measure was taken to avoid any confrontation between him and Team SBG, it’s an added layer to the win that is worth noting.
