Two interesting talents, one who had a breakthrough 2019 and an undefeated judoka are set for battle

The exciting match ups keep on coming. According to sources to MMAnytt, Brave CF are targeting a about between Swedes David “Fatboy Slim” Jacobsson (6-2) and Dilmurod Movlonov (2-0). The fight wiill be contested at a 74 kilogram catchweight. As of now the bout is not official, but the sources say that both fighters have agreed to face off at Brave 38, August 8th, in Stockholm, Sweden. This news comes shortly after MMAnytt has broken stories of other planned bouts, such as Louis Glismann vs Henri Lintula, and the battle between Tobias Harila and Rafael Macedo.


Despite being from and based in Sweden, Jacobsson competed outside of his home country the majority of his career. He racked up a decent 3-2 record, including a win over Danish prospect Thomas Jessing, but last year would be his most noteworthy in terms of the attention his career received. Firstly he challenged more or less every active Swedish fighter in his weight class, taking jabs at them on social media, until he finally got a willing opponent. Jacobsson began by completely shutting down Saeed Ganji in the former’s debut in Sweden, and followed up with a first round TKO win just two weeks later. He then capped off his fantastic run with a submission win at Cage 50 in Finland in February of this year.

Movlonov trains at Allstars Training Center alongside all time greats like Alexander Gustafsson and Ilir latifi. He is an experienced Judoka who made his professional MMA debut at Superior Challenge 14 in 2016, defeating Elio Caiaffa via strikes in the very first round. He followed up at the promotion’s following event with yet another first round finish this time via submission.
