Brave Combat Federation has confirmed the first global mixed martial arts event for Colombia on 7th September in Coliseo Bicentenario at Bucaramanga, Colombia. Brave 15 marks the first event taking place in the continent of South America in a nation other than in Brazil. Brave 15 will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa.

The organisation had announced that it will be looking out for more destinations in South America after the commercial success and reach that it had found hosting events in Brazil.

Currently Brazil is the nation that has hosted the most number of editions and have signed most number of fighters in the fastest growing mixed martial arts promotion in the world. The Public Weigh-Ins will be conducted on 6th of September ahead of the fight night.

Main Event will feature Godofredo “Pepey” Castro from Brazil facing Alex “Rolo” Torres from Colombia. Brave Combat Federation have signed multiple partnerships with IS 360 Sport & Entertainment, Vanguardia Liberal, JJ Sonido, Canal TRO and Avianca to host the event. The fight night will be broadcasted live on Abu Dhabi Sports, Combate, StarSat, VodaCom, Fite TV and FloCombat.

“Colombia had showcased steady growth and an active abundance of talent who are reaching out to global platforms for events and exposure. At this juncture it is ideal that we reach out to the region to empower and nurture the growth of the sport. The presence of Brave Combat Federation will be a game changer for the nation.

We can connect the combined synergies of Brazil and Colombia to amplify the growth potential in the region and reach out to the world utilising the continuously growing platform of Brave Combat Federation”, said Mohammed Shahid, President of Brave Combat Federation.
