In two of his first three outings under the BRAVE Combat Federation banner, French-Bulgarian phenom Benoit “God of War” St. Denis was nothing short of spectacular as he won those matches in definitive fashion.
An unbeaten welterweight prospect with an immaculate 6-0 record, the 25-year-old prospect fully showcased his potential at BRAVE CF 34 in January 2020 when he impressed the local crowd in Slovenia with a scintillating first-round submission of Ivica Truscek.
He then followed it up by putting the entire weight class on notice with a second-round demolition of British standout Mario Saeed in the co-headliner of BRAVE CF 38 seven months later.
St. Denis looks to continue his winning ways in the promotion as he shares the cage with Brazilian veteran Luan Santiago on the main card of BRAVE CF 49: Super Fights in a Super Lightweight bout, which emanates from the historical Arad Fort in Bahrain on March 25th.
It is indeed a step-up competition for St. Denis as Santiago holds an experienced 15-4 standing and has been a BRAVE CF mainstay since 2017. The Brazilian stalwart owns impressive wins over notable names such as Ivan Castillo, Igor Soares, Djamil Chan, Abdul-Kareem Al-Selwady and Gadzhimusa Gadzhiev.
A decisive victory in favor of St. Denis at BRAVE CF 49: SUPER FIGHTS could thrust him to the upper echelon of the organization’s stacked Super Lightweight division that is currently ruled by the undefeated champion Eldar Eldarov.
