Muhammad Mokaev to Face Blaine O’Driscoll at BRAVE CF 54

BRAVE Combat Federation has announced another high-profile matchup for its inaugural event in Konin, Poland on September 25th as Muhammad “The Punisher” Mokaev is slated to take on Blaine O’Driscoll in one of the feature attractions on the BRAVE CF 54 card.

Mokaev publicly called out O’Driscoll on Instagram nearly a week ago, expressing his willingness to volunteer as an opponent for the latter’s plan to move back down to flyweight.

O’Driscoll fought at bantamweight in his promotional debut at BRAVE CF 49: Super Fights this past March, where he dropped a unanimous decision defeat to Jose “Shorty” Torres.

“Welcome to [the] BRAVE CF flyweight roster,” Mokaev wrote. “Let’s dance?”

It did not take too long for O’Driscoll to respond to the challenge of Mokaev.

“Sounds good to me,” O’Driscoll commented in the same post.

The exchange between the two fighters took the attention of BRAVE CF and fans worldwide. As a result, the bout was booked for BRAVE CF 54.

Mokaev holds an undefeated record of 4-0 with one no contest. Meanwhile, O’Driscoll has a 9-4 standing with a 78 percent finishing rate.
