John Cris Corton Welcomes IMMAF Standout To BRAVE CF

BRAVE Combat Federation’s scouting program has been able to identify a number of top prospects in mixed martial arts and the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world has developed a few of them into full-fledged stars. Next on the list are two outstanding amateur fighters, who will be making their debuts at BRAVE CF 41. Magomed Idrisov and Abdulmanap Magomedov will face off against John Cris Corton and Rahmatullah Yousufzai, respectively.

Flyweight Idrisov will be making his pro debut after a stellar amateur career in the IMMAF ranks where he was able to win the European Championship. He’ll face a tough fighter in his first professional bout as he takes on BRAVE CF world champion Stephen Loman’s training partner John Cris Corton, who’s 1-2 under the BRAVE CF banner, and is looking to end a two-fight losing streak.

Bantamweight Abdulmanap Magomedov, who has won the IMMAF European, Asian, and African championships in different years, and finally turns professional after an extensive amateur career. He will face off against Rahmatullah Yousufzai, an undefeated fighter at 3-0, making his BRAVE CF debut at the Kombat Kingdom.

BRAVE CF 41 takes place on September 17th, in the Kingdom of Bahrain, and will be headlined by a Middleweight world title fight, as reigning champion Daniel Gaucho looks to defend his crown against top contender and Arab MMA legend Mohammad Fakhreddine.

Also set for the first of three Kombat Kingdom events is a rematch of one of the best BRAVE CF fights ever. Former world champions Luan ‘’Miau’’ Santiago and Lucas ‘’Mineiro’’ will look to get an edge for another title shot at Lightweight as they meet for the second time. In their first contest, Lucas beat Luan by TKO in the fifth round due to injury.
