Hassan “Fearless” Talal has been fighting since he was a young kid roaming the streets of Baghdad, Iraq. By the time he was 16 years old, he found himself indulging in mixed martial arts and dedicated himself to pursuing a career in combat sports, leaving behind his ”career” on the streets.
Hassan has been fighting with BRAVE Combat Federation since April of 2019. He had his debut fight at BRAVE CF 23 in Jordan where he wowed the arena with his impressive second round knockout against Mohamed Aly, a much more experienced fighter from Egypt.
In that moment, Hassan’s career took a turn. The exposure he received after his successful debut at a top promotion like BRAVE CF and fighting on the same card as the best Arab fighter in the world, Jarrah Al-Silawi, was life changing.
All of a sudden, the eyes of the entire Middle East combat sports community were fixated on this rising superstar.
Fighting is in his blood, and fighting in an organization that has the best Arab fighters in the world is a dream come true. Hassan continued to challenge himself, wanting to prove himself within the BRAVE CF stable of fighters, and took on Shoaib Yousaf at BRAVE CF 33 with only 3 fights under his belt in comparison to Shoaib who had 7 fights in career at the time and an impressive amateur resume.
Despite suffering the first setback of his career, Hassan is returning to the BRAVE CF arena on the most prestigious Arab centric fight card BRAVE CF 48: Arabian Night on March 18th and will once again take on a more experienced opponent, Youssef Ghrairi, a Muay Thai specialist with a 7-2 record fighting out of Lebanon.
“BRAVE CF is one of the top 2 promotions in the world and definitely the top promotion in the Middle East. This promotion is every fighter’s dream to showcase their skills, dedication, and spirit,” says Hassan. “It’s an honor to call myself a BRAVE CF fighter.”
