BRAVE Combat Federation has released the full fight card for its much-anticipated return to Brazil. The promotion lands back in Belo Horizonte for BRAVE 25, on August 30th, in the Minas Tênis Clube Arena, and will feature one of the biggest fight cards for its fans, with a monumental title fight in its main event. Lightweight world champion Luan “Miau” Santiago takes on KO artist Cleiton “Predator” for all the marbles.
In the co-main event, Felipe Efrain looks to bounce back from his loss to current Bantamweight champion Stephen Loman, as he takes on promotional newcomer and top prospect Matheus Nicolau, in what promises to be a battle for the ages.
Two Super-Lightweight bouts will also be featured in the main card, as Erivan Pereira returns from defeating legend Gesias Cavalcante to face another veteran in Mehdi Baghdad, while Djamil Chan travels to Brazil to take on Leonardo “Macarrão” Mafra, who’s fully recovered from a knee injury that he sustained during his BRAVE CF debut.
Rounding up the main card in the Middleweight division, Bruno Assis looks to credential himself to a title shot for the inaugural belt when he faces newcomer Daniel Gaucho.
The preliminary card will have a host of familiar faces as Marcel Adur looks to make his case for another title shot at Flyweight against dangerous Marlon Derik, while Maria Ribeiro and Geraldo “Luan Santana” also return. South-African Nkosi Ndebele will also make the trip to Belo Horizonte, as he faces veteran Caio Gregório.
BRAVE 25 will be the fourth time the truly global promotion lands in Brazil, and the second show hosted in Belo Horizonte, after the historic BRAVE 11 card in April of last year.
