Seef District, Bahrain – One of the best strikers in the lighter weight classes in MMA, Marcel Adur has reaffirmed his commitment to BRAVE Combat Federation by signing an extension deal with the fastest-growing MMA organization on the globe. The Brazilian star is a veteran of BRAVE CF, first fighting with the promotion back at BRAVE CF 3, in March of 2017.
Since then, he’s amassed a relevant 4-1 record with BRAVE CF, including three straight TKO wins in his first three fights – beating Ivan Lopez, Rodrigo Melonio, and Fernando Laurenço. The victories landed him a title shot against undefeated Velimurad Alkhasov – the winner would become the first-ever BRAVE CF Flyweight champion.
However, Alkhasov didn’t make weight prior to the bout and ended up beating Marcel by decision, which meant the title stayed vacant. As he looked for a new chance to hold BRAVE CF gold, Adur beat Marlon Derik at BRAVE CF 25. He would be then matched-up against Jose Torres at BRAVE CF 29, but Torres pulled out due to emotional stress following his father’s passing.
Even though Adur hasn’t competed since his victory over Derik, the Brazilian striker is raring to go and expects to be back in action for BRAVE CF sooner rather than later, with the Flyweight belt as his biggest goal.
“Hey, guys I’m very excited to be signing a new deal for BRAVE CF. I can’t wait to go back to action, go back to fighting. My goal remains that belt. It will be on my waist very, very soon!”, said Adur.
