Stephen Loman Named BRAVE CF Fighter of The Year for Second Straight Year

BRAVE Combat Federation Bantamweight world champion Stephen Loman has once again captured the most coveted individual award of the year. The Filipino hero has been named Fighter of the Year for the second time in a row by a judge of panelists from the BRAVE Insider Podcast.

In 2019, Loman defended his belt twice, passing his biggest challenges to date with flying colors. On March 15, he had a much-deserved homecoming, headlining BRAVE CF 22: Storm of Warriors, which took place in his home country at the Mall of Asia Arena.

“The Sniper” took on former Featherweight champion Elias Boudegzdame and ran through the French-Algerian fighter, stopping him in the fourth round with a violent TKO that sent shockwaves through the division.

Loman then traveled to India to produce the first-ever world title fight in Indian territory. At BRAVE CF 30, he took on Louie Sanoudakis, from Canada, and went on a rampage again, beating his rival by unanimous decision and maintaining his belt in dominant fashion.

With the win in Hyderabad, Stephen extended his dominance as the longest-reigning world champion from BRAVE Combat Federation. He’s the only world champion at Bantamweight and has defended his title four times in a row. No other titleholder in BRAVE CF history has been able to defend his belt more than one time.
