Felipe Efrain made a statement that he will be back focusing his career towards the bantamweight championship of Brave Combat Federation. The bantamweight fighter from Brazil had faced an early stoppage loss against Frans Mlambo at Brave 10 hosted in Amman, Jordan. Mlambo procceded to face the reigning bantamweight champion, Stephen Loman in Belfast during Brave 13. However Loman made a historic title defence by retaining his championship there by becoming the youngest champion at Brave Combat Federation to successfully defend his championship.
Efrain had made it clear that his aim is to secure a win over Quero and to challenge Loman for the championship. After that Efrain aims to settle the score with Mlambo to whom he lost the fight due to early stoppage. Meanwhile Quero who has the fighting experience of 22 fights in his career has embraced his roots in Congo. The French national will be competing in Africa for the very first time and is currently aiming to make his fight memorable by dedicating it to his ancestors. Recently he had received support for his second appearance at Brave Combat Federation from none other than Moroccan Olympian and first female mixed martial artist from the country, Rizlen Zouak. Zouak is also a team mate of Quero.
Quero made a statement by being the only non-Brazilian to secure a win during his promotional debut at Brave 11. At Brave 14 both athletes will be competing with high stakes. The fight marks long awaited clash between Felipe and Quero as the duo was set to face during Brave 9 hosted in Bahrain. However Quero was replaced by Nawras Absakh from Jordan during the final weeks. Felipe not only came strong against Abzakh but also won the knockout of the year award for his performance. With Efrain high up in the bantamweight rankings, a win against the Brazilian bantamweight will propel Quero high in the rankings in the fast developing division.
