Almabayev Meets Ibraimov in Pivotal Flyweight Battle at BRAVE CF 47

Two of the best Asian Flyweights are set for a pivotal clash on the brightest stage. BRAVE Combat Federation officials have announced that Ryskulbek Ibraimov will be fighting Asu Almabayev in the upcoming BRAVE CF 47 card, scheduled for March 11th, in the Kingdom of Bahrain, dubbed the Kombat Kingdom.

These two Flyweight top contenders will be fighting for Asian Domination at the first of four events scheduled by BRAVE CF for its home nation of Bahrain, proving, once again, that the truly global MMA promotion is also the home of the best Flyweight division in the world.

With a record of 18 wins and 8 losses, Ryskulbek Ibraimov is currently on a 7-win streak, having placed his name as one of the most prominent Flyweights in the Central Asian/Eastern European region.

Ibraimov is now ready to take the leap and make his way to the big leagues, as he joins BRAVE Combat Federation to face his biggest threat and challenge so far: Kazakhstan’s Asu Almabaev.

Boasting a 12-2 professional record, Almabaev has gained huge momentum lately, with an 8-fight win streak and amazing success competing in his home country but also in Russia.

BRAVE CF 47 will take place on March 11 in the Kingdom of Bahrain, also known as Kombat Kingdom. The event will open a series of four consecutive cards held by the truly global promotion in its home nation.

The event will be headlined by the Lightweight title eliminator between Kyrgyzstan’s Abdysalam Kubanychbek and Philippines’ Rolando Dy. The winner will become the best Lightweight in Asia, and will earn a shot at Amin Ayoub’s world title belt.
