Ahmad Labban got himself a huge reputation in the Middle Eastern and Eastern European MMA scenes, due to his high-level striking and results, collecting wins and titles in the regional level.
But his story of success traces way back to his kickboxing days. Labban is an 8-time Lebanese kickboxing champion, completely dominating the competition in his country and establishing a true dynasty in the national scene, which he expanded internationally by winning 3 world titles.
“The Shadow”, as he’s also known as, was also a Muay Thai champion and Boxing champion in Lebanon, with a combined Kickboxing, Boxing, and Muay Thai record of 35 wins and only 5 losses.
Since he made his way to Mixed Martial Arts, under the guidance of coach Dražen Forgac, from American Top Team Zagreb, in Croatia, Labban got a professional MMA record of 9 wins and 3 losses, with 7 KO’s and multiple regional championships.
He’s now set to make his long-awaited BRAVE Combat Federation debut and will take on the Serbian striker Nemanja Kovac at BRAVE CF 48 co-main event of the evening.
Facing a rival stylistically so similar will be a huge chance for Ahmad Labban to showcase his skills and prove why he was one of the most popular names in the region.
Doing so at the #1 promotion in Asia, and as the the co-main event of a Kombat Kingdom event, can fast-track The Shadow to the top of the Super Lightweight division and give him the opportunity to repeat on a global scale what he’s already done in the regional scene.
