Founded in the Kingdom of Bahrain by His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa with a global orientation, BRAVE Combat Federation quickly became one of the biggest international MMA promotions in the world, a position that only became more and more solidified throughout the years.
As the overseas expansion reached new regions, such as South America and Africa, apart from Asia, one continent in particular started getting more and more traction within BRAVE CF and became a hub for the international events promoted by the organization: Europe.
Now, only three years after its maiden European event in Northern Ireland, BRAVE CF has officially established itself as the biggest MMA promotion in Europe, with the largest active MMA market share in the continent, hosting events in three different regions and 8 European countries.
Apart from it, BRAVE Combat Federation has established the most comprehensive scouting network in Europe, leading up to more than 80 European fighters, from 30 different nations, signed up to this point. To accomodate this amount of talent, BRAVE CF was the only global MMA promotion in history to host 7 events in Europe in a single year.
BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid celebrated the achievements, while commenting on how they play a key role in the bigger picture plan for the fastest-growing MMA promotion in the world.
“The vision of His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa was clear to us from the first day: to reform the MMA industry from an event business to a sports business. To give opportunity to fighters and the whole industry around the world, regardless of marketability, language, nationality, or region. Talent would be the only variable”, Mr. Shahid stated.
“This vision has today seen the development of MMA and opportunities spread all over Asia, Africa, South America and now it’s showing in Europe”, he continued.
“Breaking records and making history towards the new age of MMA. An absolute honor to be a small part of this global vision”.
The BRAVE CF European series of events will continue on August 1st, when the truly global MMA promotion lands for the first time in Italy, hosting its 52nd edition in the world’s fashion capital Milan.
