Seef District, Bahrain – A historic figure in Middle Eastern MMA, Mohammed “The Latest” Fakhreddine will have the chance to make history and extend his legacy at BRAVE Combat Federation by becoming the promotion’s first double champion ever.
Fakhreddine, who currently holds the BRAVE CF Middleweight world title, is set to fight for his second belt at BRAVE CF 50. He will face Mohammed Said Maalem in a five-round Light Heavyweight title match-up scheduled for the historical event.
With a professional record of 14 wins and 4 losses, Fakhreddine has been one of the most pivotal names in the history of BRAVE Combat Federation, having been the very first star to sign with the truly global promotion, even before its debut event, which he was supposed to headline.
Since then, Fakhreddine fought in three different weight classes and took part in the prestigious KHK World Title, the one-night open weight tournament held in Kombat Kingdom back in 2019.
Fakhreddine achieved his long-time dream of capturing the world title in September, 2020, when he knocked out the former Middleweight champion Daniel Pereira. He’s now in prime position to do what no one else has done in BRAVE CF, holding two belts at the same time, and, once and for all, writing his name in the history of the promotion.
Mohamed Said Malem boasts a professional record of 11 wins and 3 losses, and is currently on a 6-win streak, which includes two BRAVE CF wins. Since he beat Zvonimir Kralj, Said Malem has engaged in a war of words with Fakhreddine through social media, which they are now set to settle inside the cage.
BRAVE CF 50 will be a historical fight night celebrating the emblematic milestone for the truly global MMA promotion. In this meantime, BRAVE CF has visited 21 countries in only exactly 1651 days of operations, an unparalleled achievement in the industry.
The landmark event will feature in total three title fights with Arab icon Jarrah Al-Silawi defending his Super Welterweight crown against Ismail Naurdiev, while Lightweight king Amin Ayoub looks to maintain his throne when he faces top contender Ahmed Amir.
