BRAVE CF 61 and Grabinski vs Lutterbach 2: a rematch made by destiny. The two athletes have fought before in 2017 with Lutterbach coming out on top. Heading into that fight, Joilton was the more experienced mixed martial artist with just under fifty percent more fights than then-German Lightweight champion Grabinski. Lutterbach failed to make weight and made the best of his experience and the conditions to grind out the unanimous decision win. However, due to him missing weight he was ineligible for Grabinski’s title.

This reality could be a lot for Lutterbach to process. Grabinski is riding a two-fight win streak under BRAVE CF and will use all tools at his disposal to exact revenge on BRAVE CF debutant Lutterbach, earn a shot at becoming the Number One Super Lightweight in mixed martial arts today, and prove why he is the flag-bearer for his nation.
“This is the perfect opportunity for me as I am going to be fighting in the first-ever BRAVE CF event in Germany,” says Grabinski. “This is my home and what an honor it is to be headlining a BRAVE CF card in Germany against a fighter that beat me before. The stars have aligned for me!”
