There’s a good reason why BRAVE Combat Federation is known as one of the biggest mixed martial arts (MMA) organizations in the world today as its roster is stacked with world-class talent from across the globe.
The Bahrain-based promotion has signed more than 500 athletes from 70 different nations and has also been pivotal in the formation of local and homegrown stars such as BRAVE CF Super Lightweight World Champion Eldar Eldarov, Abdisalam “Omok” Kubanychbek and Muhammad “The Punisher” Mokaev.
Aside from building fighters from the grassroots level, it also houses the best and brightest athletes in the sport such as Ali “The King Puncher” Bagautinov, Jose “Shorty” Torres, Elias “Smile” Boudegzdame, Zach “Fun Size” Makovsky and Mohammad “The Latest” Fakhreddine,
According to company president Mohammed Shahid, BRAVE CF’s lineup of top-tier competitors attributed largely to its scouting and connection building.
‘’We have the best scouting program in the world, there’s no doubt about it,” the head honcho shared. “That’s because we connect with MMA people around the world, we connect with the gyms, with their national federations, with everyone involved in the sport. That’s how you unearth the gems that we have.”
On the other hand, the company promotes a unique business model that focuses more on the development of the sport per continent by creating an MMA ecosystem, which will empower governing bodies as well as help local leagues and their athletes gain international exposure.
That was the goal when BRAVE CF partnered with Rukh Sport Management to host its inaugural card in Minsk, Belarus this past June, offering 11 exciting bouts that featured six up-and-comers from the host nation.
“BRAVE CF has contributed so much to the reemergence of Belarus in MMA. Football, hockey, and basketball are the most popular sports in our country. But thanks to a promotion like BRAVE CF, the future of MMA in Belarus is secured,” said Tatsiana Kukhareva, the director of Rukh Sport Management.
The same formula will be applied when the MMA outfit makes its much-awaited debut in Konin, Poland on Saturday, September 25 for BRAVE CF 54 headlined by a grudge match between BRAVE CF Lightweight World Champion Amin “Fierceness” Ayoub of France and challenger Ahmed “The Butcher” Amir of Egypt.
“We are very excited at BRAVE CF to be leading the European MMA scene today,” BRAVE CF COO Valeria Lang stated. “Europe is a key market for global sports regulation and development, and we intend to develop MMA in this market and give the biggest opportunity to the top European fighters and make them global stars.”
