This Saturday, March 2, at Pablo-Neruda, the gala celebrated with ‘’great pomp’’ his ten years in Nîmes. Quickly, the rest…

''He will end up at the UFC (Ultimate fighting championship, the Mecca of MMA).'' Belt passed around the size of Brandon Brachet, Jean-François Billon, the organizer of the GFA (Gladiator fighting arena), MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) gala which took place Saturday evening in Pablo-Neruda, wants to be rave about the future of the Northerner. At 19 years old, Brachet shone with his talent this Main Event. ''The goal is the UFC, confirms the young man, sure of his strength. Tonight, the ‘’game plan’’ was above all not to throw yourself away and not do anything.''

Brandon Brachet, GFA champion: ''He gave me the chance to strangle him  and I didn't let go

An assault which, as in his five previous victories (card at 6/1), ended in the 1st round. In the octagon, the Colombian Rua lasted less than a minute before being submitted. ''He gave me the possibility of strangling him and I never let go of him'', summarized the successor of the late Roman Molodij (died in 2020) on the list of winners of this GFA (less than 66 kg). ''He had made his last fight here, in the same room, the same category. It was important for me to put my shorts back on,” continued the resident of Team AFC Roubaix.

Failed farewell for Salazar and Salgado

If Brandon Brachet showed himself diligently, while revealing himself to the Nîmes public, other fighters, on the other hand, missed their return. Or their goodbyes. The Brazilian Sidnei Lisboa, 38, missed his ‘’come-back’’, caught up by age and the speed of execution of the execution. Avignonnais Geoffroy Puigvert and stopped in the 2nd round. The Costa Ricans Salazar (42 years old, 44 fights) and Salgado (40, 45), after having marked the history of the GFA, also finished with difficulty, the last challenges lost. The twilight for the South Americans contrasts with the dawn of the career of Dayyan Jodar (20 years old, Team Eloffe).

Jimmy Vienot in the cage next year ?

In front of his family, the Nîmes won a 6th victory in eight fights. Not the easiest and least discussed, with the split decision against Marseillais Hakobyan, impressive on the ground and who had to leave with a feeling of injustice. ''It’s a fight where I struggled, admitted Jodar. Next time, I hope I will show more.'' Next time, in Nîmes, it will be in 2025. With a size on the map ? & ;#39;'We have to check with the managers but there is perhaps a way for me to take a look in the cage here, pointed out Jimmy Vienot, 28 years old, Muay-Thai champion who came to MMA (1 -0) and distinguished guest of the evening. The show is really nice.''
