Sidney Wheeler has announced that he will be focusing his career at the Middleweight division as he prepares to compete in an upcoming edition of the event. Wheeler who competed in the welterweight division of Brave Combat Federation made a huge splash in the division after defeating Pawel Kielek who had stopped ex-UFC fighter and French National Kickboxing champion, Mehdi Baghdad by unanimous decision.
Wheeler couldn’t compete due to issues with weight-cut during Brave 13 and had missed weight in Brave 14, the move will make it easier for Wheeler to focus on a developing weight class while retaining his key strengths which are power and wrestling. Wheeler who has a professional record of 8-3-0 is training in the Blalock’s International Martial Arts & Boxing Academy MMA under coach Chet Blalock. The Middleweight fighter is currently campaigning to make his return after Brave 18 which will be hosted in Bahrain.
“Fight news is coming, Middleweight news. Gains in all areas – speed, strength, technique and weight”, commented Wheeler about moving up to a higher weight division.
