Prior to the establishment of BRAVE Combat Federation, there was an assumption that the Middle East did not have the highest quality of fighters or the training camps for Arab fighters to become world class fighters.
BRAVE CF knew it was never the quality that was lacking in the Middle East, it was the opportunity for fighters to showcase their skills and compete on a global scale. It created a platform for Middle Eastern fighters to not only compete and showcase their skills in the Middle East alone but to compete against the best fighters from around the world and become global superstars in a truly global mixed martial arts promotion.
The same BRAVE CF scouting program which scouted Khamzat Chimaev, Muhammad Mokaev, and Johnny Walker from the western world was responsible for the rise of the best MMA fighters from the Middle East, Mohammed Fakhreddine, Jarrah Al-Silawi, Ottman Azaitar, Mounir Lazzez, Amir Albazi, amongst many more.
BRAVE CF 50 on April 1st is scheduled to be the biggest event in the history of the organization, and will include some of the best fighters across the globe for one spectacular evening in the historical Arad Fort in the Kingdom Of Bahrain.
Jarrah “The Jordanian Lion” Al-Silawi, the current BRAVE CF Super Welterweight Champion, has been with BRAVE CF since BRAVE CF 2: Dynasty after dominating the Middle Eastern MMA scene. Through his career with BRAVE CF, Al-Silawe proved himself and skills in front of the entire world and was coined the best Arab MMA fighter to ever exist. He is considered and ranked as #1 Super Welterweight in the world with his exquisite skills in various disciplines of combat sports.
The Jordanian Lion will get a chance to prove himself once again on April 1st as he defends his BRAVE CF Super Welterweight World Champion Title against BRAVE CF newcomer Ismail “The Austrian Wonderboy” Nuardiev.
Another legend in Arab MMA, Mohammed “The Latest” Fakhreddine from Lebanon, will also be aiming to break world records on this night. Since he began his MMA career, everyone across the Middle East considered him a legend in the sport. Nevertheless, the latest wasn’t given a chance to showcase his skills in front of the world due to his late start in MMA and low marketability due to his age. BRAVE CF provided him the opportunity to showcase the world who he really is and he took advantage of it to the fullest.
Fakhreddine competed at BRAVE CF open weight tournament, securing the 2nd place, and followed it by the Former BRAVE CF Middleweight World Champion Daniel Pereira with knockout finish crowning himself the new BRAVE CF Middleweight World Champion. On April 1st, he has the opportunity to become the first ever Middle Eastern World Champion in 2 weight classes, and first ever BRAVE CF double champion. He will be fighting for the BRAVE CF Light Heavyweight World Champion Title against Mohammed Said Maalem.
BRAVE CF dedication to give opportunities to fighters regardless of race, age, religion, and marketability has opened the world to fighters across the world. The vision of His Highness Sh. Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa reformed combat sports into a new era across the globe, and the rise of new MMA champions from all walks of life has been a reflection of his success.
BRAVE CF 50 is a celebration of the success of the fastest growing promotion in the world, and the impact of the vision of H.H Sh. Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa to change the landscape of MMA globally. MMA enthusiasts worldwide can join BRAVE CF’s celebration and watch 17 incredible fights live and for free on BRAVE CF TV on April 1st at 5:30 PM (GMT+3).
