Another huge Lightweight duel will oppose rising Russian standouts Kamil Magomedov and Akhmed Shervaniev, who are both ranked in the top 5 in the official BRAVE CF rankings and nearing a world title shot.

In the Featherweight division, surging contender Omar Solomanov will look for his third straight victory under the BRAVE CF banner in as many outings when he takes on hometown favorite Ilyar Askhanov, fresh off a huge win of his own, back at BRAVE CF 59.
