It was a knockout that no one saw coming. Two of BFL’s young stars going head to head in a shootout to crown the champion of the pro middleweight division. The result shocked everyone in attendance…
In one corner, a former middleweight champion in our amateur division in Micah Brakefield. Brakefield, a powerful and skilled grappler hailing from Burnaby, BC had an undefeated record as a middleweight going into this fight. In the other corner, a two time amateur Welterweight champion making both his pro and middleweight debut in Leo Xavier. Xavier, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt hailing from Vancouver, BC was coming off his 2nd title win in the Welterweight division, in a previous superfight with David Kennedy. This would mark his 2nd consecutive superfight and title fight in a row as he stepped inside the cage against Brakefield to crown the middleweight champion.
