Rolando Dy bout in Brave CF ends in No Contest

Rolando Gabriel Dy meets the media at the PXC 48 Press Conference

Rolando Dy’s bout in Brave CF didn’t end as planned.

Dy, who’s a top contender in Pacific Xtreme Combat, took on Nelson Paes at Brave CF 5 in Mumbai, India. Both fighters put in hard work in training camp and in their weight cut, but as they say: You never know how a fight will go.

Not even a minute into the first round, Dy attempted a takedown, and he and Paes accidentally butted heads. Dy told referees that he was fine. However, the unintentional head butt clearly rocked Paes, and the referee declared the fight a No Contest.
