BRAVE CF’s Role in African MMA Development: A Long-Term Commitment 

BRAVE Combat Federation, the Bahrain-based promotion founded by His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa, was the very first global Mixed Martial Arts organization to host an event in Africa. After its first event in Morocco, the promotion returned to the continent twice, with two trips to South Africa.

The commitment of the fastest-growing MMA promotion in the world with the African continent is unparalleled in the industry, as the Bahrain-based organization remains till this date as the only international promotion to host fight nights within the continent.

In addition, BRAVE CF has also consistently added African talents to its athlete roster, with fighters from the continent featured in several international cards, and not only in the ones in the region.

Such signings were enabled by a thorough scouting program led by BRAVE CF’s African office, that monitors and keeps track of the talent. For 2021, BRAVE Combat Federation has even bigger plans for Africa. Officials revealed a second phase of the scouting program, intensifying and expanding the radius of the talent search, empowering athletes from the whole continent.

The upcoming year will also see the first installment of a BRAVE Combat Federation reality show held in the continent of Africa. The details about the project are set to be announced in the first months of 2021.
