BRAVE Combat Federation has announced the signing of Felipe Silva, a Brazilian striker, known for his technical muay thai game and coach to one of the country’s best gyms in CM System. Silva has signed a multi-fight deal with the fastest-growing promotion in the world and is expected to make his debut later this year. While he competed for most of his career at Lightweight, Felipe has recently expressed a desire to test himself at Super Lightweight.
Felipe has amassed an 8-2 professional MMA record, with six of his wins coming by way of knockout or technical knockout. A former UFC fighter, Silva joins the likes of his head coach and MMA legend Cristiano Marcello, Lightweight world champion Luan “Miau” Santiago, Welterweight sensation Geraldo “Luan Santana” Neto, and Featherweight contender Gabriel “Fly” Miranda as representatives of CM System in the BRAVE roster.
“In a path of uncertainties and delays, an incredible invitation appeared for me. With this signature, I officially accepted the proposal of one of the largest MMA organizations in the world, BRAVE CF. I will do my best to honor my family, my team, my city. I’ll always seek the knockout and I’ll always look to put on electrifying fights! Thank you very much, BRAVE! I know you will soon be the biggest in the world and I will be there with you!”, celebrated Silva through his social media account.
Felipe has long been a big part of the success from the CM System roster, serving as the main striking coach for the team, including the aforementioned BRAVE fighters. Lightweight champ Santiago has especially celebrated the signing of his coach, giving his welcome to Silva, while Geraldo Neto promised the gym would take over all the major weight divisions for BRAVE.
