Lausa eyes to end slump in Brave 66

FORMER UFC fighter Jenel Lausa will return to the cage on Nov. 26, 2022, against South African Dansheel Moodley in Brave 66 at the Politeknik Pariwisata in Bali, Indonesia.

The 34-year-old Filipino fighter is hungry for a win after losing his last five fights and failing a win an MMA fight for six years. His last win was a unanimous decision over Chinese Yao Zhikui in 2016 in his UFC debut Australia in 2016.

Lausa would get cut by the UFC after dropping his next three fights in the Octagon, losing to Magomed Bibulatov, Eric Shelton and Ulka Sasaki.

He then fought one boxing match in 2019 before earning a fight in the Middle East in Brave in 2021.

Lausa has a record of 7-7, while Moodley is 7-3.

Also seeing action in the same card is unbeaten Pinoy prospect Ruel Pañales. Pañales will take on Indian Mohammad Farhad.

The 25-year-old Pañales just won his first international fight after stopping Russian Magomed Gadzhimuradov in UAE Warriors 30 last July 2 in Abu Dhabi.

The main event will feature a flyweight bout between Kazakh Asu Almabaev (16-2) against unbeaten Bahraini Magomed Idrisov (7-0), while South African Chad Hanekom (8-2) will lock horns with South Korean In Jae La (11-1-1) in the co-main event. (EKA)
