BRAVE Combat Federation has officially announced that Amin “Fierceness” Ayoub will defend his coveted BRAVE CF Lightweight World Championship against arch-rival Ahmed “The Butcher” Amir at BRAVE CF 54. The event is set to take place in Konin, Poland on September 25th.
Both men were originally penciled to face each other at BRAVE CF 50 this past April, but Amir needed to pull out of the bout a few days before the event due to a neck and shoulder injury. Now, the two will have the chance to settle their unfinished business inside the cage.
Ayoub has been undefeated since April 2018, racking up eight consecutive victories that saw him capture the BRAVE CF Lightweight World Championship at the expense of Cleiton “Predador” Silva at BRAVE CF 44 in November 2020.
In his last outing, the Frenchman scored a unanimous decision win over Mashrabjon Ruziboev—who accepted to fill in for Amir on short notice—in a catchweight contest at BRAVE CF 50.
In the other corner, Amir is riding high on a two-match winning streak, submitting Yousef Wehbe with a third-round rear-naked choke at BRAVE CF 33 in December 2019 before outpointing Cian Cowley at BRAVE CF 41 in September 2020.
BRAVE CF will be announcing more bouts for BRAVE CF 54 in the coming days.
