An exciting catchweight matchup between recent BRAVE CF debutante, Blaine O’Driscoll and the undefeated uber-prospect, Muhammad Mokaev has been added to BRAVE CF 54 on September 25th. from Konin, Poland.
O’Driscoll, an alum of Bellator MMA, Cage Warriors, and the now-defunct, BAMMA — debuted under the Brave Combat Federation back in March at BRAVE CF 49 where he suffered a unanimous decision defeat against UFC alum, Jose ‘Shorty’ Torres in a short-notice promotional bow.
For the undefeated amateur standout, Mokaev, the 21-year-old is undefeated in four professional outings — most recently besting Abdul Hussein via unanimous decision on the same card as O’Driscoll’s judging defeat against Torres. The Bahrain-based promotion officially announced the pairing of O’Driscoll and Mokaev in a press release this afternoon.
9-4 as a professional, bantamweight standout, O’Driscoll entered the Brave CF promotion off the back of two notable stoppage victories under the Scott Coker-led Bellator banner.
The Straight Blast Gym mainstay first managed an opening round knockout victory over Ezzoubair Bouarsa at Bellator 240 back in February of last year, before submitting Salah Elkas at Bellator 247 last October. In other notable career victories, O’Driscoll has bested the likes of Harry Hardwick, Darren O’Gorman, and Dylan Sheehan.
KHK MMA Team standout and emerging prospect, Mokaev, who enjoyed a hugely successful amateur career, scoring an undefeated 22-0 record prior to his professional debut back in August of last year.
The two-time IMMAF tournament victor began his career with a unanimous decision win over Gleen McVeigh — before scoring other stoppage successes Jamie Kelly and then Dave Jones prior to his unanimous decision win over Hussein.
