BRAVE CF 42 to Host Torres vs Santella, Plus Two Other Flyweight Tournament Bouts

BRAVE Combat Federation has confirmed that three of the first round matchups of its much-anticipated Flyweight World Title Tournament will take place in the Kingdom of Bahrain, as part of the “Kombat Kingdom” series.

The event on September 24th will be headlined the clash between two Americans, Jose “Shorty” Torres and Sean “Shorty Rock” Santella, as both men look to book a place in the semifinals and to define the best Flyweight in America.

Torres is coming off a defining victory against Amir Albazi in his first BRAVE CF outing, while Sean Santella returns to the fold after a disappointing loss in his first BRAVE CF fight, when he lost to Velimurad Alkhasov by decision.

Another bout of BRAVE CF’s prestigious Flyweight world title tournament will also take place at the same night, in the main card, with Finland’s Abdul “ABBA” Hussein facing USA’s Zach “Fun Size” Makovsky.


Hussein is known for its amateur world title, while veteran Makovsky has tasted gold in other promotions and fought across the world in his professional career.

Last but not least, Flavio Queiroz will face the biggest challenge of his career as he goes up against sambo world champion Velimurad Alkhasov in another quarter-final set for the second BRAVE CF show in Kombat Kingdom.

BRAVE CF 42 will be the second of three consecutive events scheduled by the world’s fastest-growing MMA promotion to the Kingdom of Bahrain between September and October.

Labeled as “Kombat Kingdom”, the fight night marathon will kick off on August 17, with BRAVE CF 41, headlined by the Middleweight title fight between Daniel “Gaucho” and Mohammed Fakhreddine.

A week later, the Flyweights will take the main stage with the first round of the epic inaugural title tournament at BRAVE CF 42. To wrap up the schedule, BRAVE CF 43, still without its main event confirmed, will take place on October 1st. All three events will be held at closed-doors arenas, following the strongest Covid-19 protocols within the MMA industry.


BRAVE CF 42 Fight Card (so far):

Flyweight Quarter-final: Jose Torres vs Sean Santella
