BRAVE CF 82: Record-breaking Viewership on BRAVE TV

BRAVE Combat Federation’s second event of the year, BRAVE CF 82 is in the books. Headlined by the historic Bantamweight title fight between Nkosi Ndebele and Jose ‘Shorty’ Torres, the event proved to be a huge success across the board and has broken multiple viewership records on BRAVE TV.

BRAVE CF 82 emerged as the most-watched fight night of 2024 on BRAVE TV, surpassing BRAVE CF 81 held in Slovenia in April. The event saw a significant increase in subscribers from the African continent, with South Africa ranking among the top five nations with the most new subscribers. This surge highlights the nation’s support for Nkosi Ndebele, who successfully defended his Bantamweight World title by defeating Jose Torres in the first-ever trilogy in BRAVE CF history. With this victory, Nkosi became the first African MMA World champion to defend his title on African soil.

The event also became the most-watched on BRAVE TV since BRAVE CF 69, held in Serbia in February 2023, which featured the Lightweight World title fight between Abdisalam Kubanychbek and Kamil Magomedov.

In addition to breaking viewership records, BRAVE CF 82 set a record for combat sports attendance in Mauritius, with fans packing the Cote d’Or venue to witness the live action.

BRAVE CF 82 underscores the vast potential of African MMA, something that BRAVE CF has been dedicated to developing since its inception in 2016. To date, BRAVE CF remains the only international MMA organization to host events in Africa and has showcased more than 75 fighters from 13 African countries, including BRAVE CF Bantamweight world champion Nkosi Ndebele.
