BRAVE Combat Federation returns home to the Kingdom of Bahrain for the 2022 edition of its International Combat Week, with one of the most international fight cards in its global history. The promotion has released BRAVE CF 57’s fight card with 17 nations represented.
Fighters from the following countries will be in action for the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world: Bahrain, Canada, Lebanon, Algeria, Kyrgyzstan, France, Uzbekistan, Brazil, England, Russia, Switzerland, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, India, Egypt, and Afghanistan.
The groundbreaking show will be headlined by three world title fights. In the Bantamweight division, hometown hero Hamza Kooheji faces SBG Ireland’s Brad Katona for the vacant crown. At Light Heavyweight, Mohammad Fakhreddine, the reigning Middleweight champion, will look to become the first Arab fighter to hold two world titles in two weight classes simultaneously.
Last but not least, former Lightweight champ Amin Ayoub takes on Abdisalam Uulu Kubanychbek for the interim 155-pound title. The winner faces lineal world champion Ahmed Amir, currently sidelined due to injury.
BRAVE CF 57 goes down at the Khalifa Sports City Arena at the 2022 BICW, which will also feature the first-ever edition of the MMA Super Cup, the largest amateur tournament in the world.
