Clash Of The Undefeated: Aliskerov vs Chimaev Added to Brave 23

Undefeated Ikram Aliskerov has a new challenge scheduled in Brave Combat Federation. The Sambo World Champion will face another athlete with a perfect MMA record. Brave CF officials confirmed, this Thursday (14), that Aliskerov will meet Sweeden’s Khamzat Chimaev in a Welterweight bout (175 lbs) at Brave 23, on April 19th, in Amman, Jordan.

With eight wins in as many professional fights, Ikram Aliskerov counts with five of those wins under the Brave Combat Federation banner. In his latest performance, Aliskerov stopped Geraldo Luan Santana at Brave 21, last December, in Saudi Arabia.

Khamzat Chimaev won all of his four pro bouts and is 2-0 competing for Brave CF. Fighting out of Allstars Training Center, alongside the likes of Alexander Gustafsson, Ilir Latifi, and Reza Madadi, Chimaev beat USA’s Sidney Wheeler in the main event of Brave 20, India, which also took place last December.

Brave 23 marks the second time a Brave event takes place in Jordan. The groundbreaking show will be headlined by three title fights. Local superstar and Welterweight champion Jarrah Al Selawe will take on undefeated challenger Abdoul Abdouraguimov; Abdul Kareem Al Selwady puts his Lightweight title on the line against Brazilian powerhouse Luan “Miau” Santiago, and Eldar Eldarov and Mounir Lazzez face each other for the inaugural Super Lightweight belt.
