BRAVE CF 66 will be the perfect advertisement for BRAVE Combat Federation’s vast and deep international reach when the promotion touches down in Bali, Indonesia on November 26th. In total, 20 athletes from across the world will descend upon the planet’s largest Archipelagic state as they aim to put on a spectacular show for the BRAVE Nation at BRAVE CF 66.
The fastest-growing MMA organization in the world will truly showcase its local and international flavor when fighters from ten countries will be in action. Bahrain, the Philippines, India, Singapore, Indonesia, South Africa, France, South Korea, Kazakhstan, and Australia will all be represented when BRAVE CF returns to Indonesia after a four-year hiatus.
The event will feature athletes from four continents (Asia, Europe, Africa, and Australia) and eight regions (Western Europe, Africa/Middle East, Central Asia, Far East Asia, South-East Asia, Subcontinent, and Oceania). The BRAVE CF 66 main event sees number-two ranked BRAVE CF Middleweight, South Africa’s Chad Hanekom take on South Korea’s In Jae La in a hot 185-pound fight. One of BRAVE CF’s top 125-pounders, Kazakhstan’s Asu Almabaev will face BRAVE CF debutant, the Philippines’ Kenneth Maningat in the co-main event of the evening.
As per BRAVE CF’s commitment to uplifting every country it visits, BRAVE CF 66 will offer five local Indonesian athletes the opportunity to put their hands up and change their lives forever. On the main card, Indonesian MMA star Fajar “Macho Kamacho’’ makes his BRAVE CF debut and he has a huge opportunity to stake his claim for honors in the Bantamweight division when he faces SA’s number-five ranked BRAVE CF Bantamweight Nkosi Ndebele.
On the preliminary card, Oloan Silalahi faces his countryman, Wilem Natalex Munster in the only Light Heavyweight bout of the night. In the opening fight of BRAVE 66, locals Achterson Andre Rumainum and Randi Febian will make their professional debuts.
It will be the promotion’s first trip back to the South-East Asian country since 2018 when the city of Jakarta played host to BRAVE CF 12. Indonesia has always been a long-term target territory for BRAVE Combat Federation following the success of BRAVE CF 12: KHK Legacy, which took place on May 11th, 2018. 2022 Has been a ground-breaking year for BRAVE CF. The promotion became a world leader in the industry after hosting BRAVE 61 in Bonn, Germany. That event put BRAVE Combat Federation on top of the list of most-traveled organizations in the sport as Germany was the 28th nation to host a BRAVE CF event, reiterating BRAVE CF’s truly international feel and flavor.
