Khamzat Chimaev will make his promotional debut at Brave Combat Federation on 16th November during Brave International Combat Week 2018. The breakout star from Sweden has a clean record of 2-0-0 and is a dominating force in the cage. Chimaev is currently undergoing training at the Allstars Training Center in Stockholm, Sweden. The Swedish star was initially scheduled to face the gold medalist from 2017 IMMAF World Championships, Benjamin Bennett. However Bennett withdrew from the fight card due an injury he contacted during the fight camp. This has forced Brave Combat Federation to announce Marco Kisic to face Chimaev in the opening bout of Brave 18.
Marco Kisic from Austria has an undefeated professional career of four straight wins. All the four wins for Marco came by way of finishes and the Austrian has finished all the four within the first round of the bout. The bout will result in the first defat in the careers of either one of the athletes. Kisic is the first fighter from Austria to compete in Brave Combat Federation.
Leading to the fight, the camp is going strong for Chimaev. Some of the biggest names in the MMA world are training alongside him in All Stars Training Center in Stockholm, Sweden. The names include Reza Madadi, Jimi Manuwa, Hector Lombard, Alexander Gustafsson and Ilir Latifi which indeed makes Chimaev a competitor to be taken seriously. The bout will take place on 16th November in the Khalifa Sports City at Brave 18 taking place during the Brave International Combat Week 2018.
