BRAVE Combat Federation, the truly global MMA promotion, is ready to add yet another new country to its hosting nations list, as the fastest-growing organization in the world prepares to land in Minsk, Belarus in less than a month. With the anticipation building up for the 51st edition, BRAVE CF has revealed the full fight card for the June 4th event.
BRAVE CF 51: The Future Is Here will be headlined by a pivotal Lightweight clash between Brazilian veteran and former BRAVE CF world champion Lucas “Mineiro” Martins and German superstar Marcel Grabinski.
Another crucial match for the future of the BRAVE CF Lightweight division is also set to take place at BRAVE CF 51, as Sam Patterson takes on Ylies Djiroun. The British standout has left the nickname “The Future” behind, and became more and more “the present” of the division, and Djiroun lived up to the hype on his BRAVE CF debut with a submission win over Abdul-Rakhman Makhazhiev.
Russian star Roman Bogatov is also set to make his second BRAVE CF appearance, after dominating Nurzhan Akishev back in January. Bogatov will square off against Abdulmutalip Gairbekov, one of the most feared names of the new generation of Dagestan, and riding a 13-fight undefeated streak.
The night wouldn’t be complete without the presence of local stars and Belarus will be very well represented inside the BRAVE CF Arena in the co-main event of the evening, with undefeated star Denis Maher facing Sweden’s Fernando Gonzalez.
Four other local stars will be featured in the card, with Vladislav Novitskiy facing France’s Yanis Ghemmouri, Vadim Rolich fighting Kyrgyzstan’s Abylkasim Yakubov, and Murat Azerbiev vs Evgeniy Sleptsov opening the night in a Belarus vs Belarus clash.
BRAVE CF 51: The Future is Here takes place on June 4th, at the Falcon Club, in Minsk, Belarus, and will be promoted in association with Rukh Sport Management. The event will count with athletes representing 10 different nations, once again reinforcing the global-orientation of BRAVE Combat Federation.
