The upcoming Brave 19 is the first ever international Mixed Martial Arts event to take place in South Africa. But that’s not the only reason why the fight night will be historic. Brave 19 is set to host the first-ever regional version of Brave Combat Week, which has its acclaimed yearly international edition in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The 2018 Africa Combat Week will be the first of its kind not only in the continent but worldwide. An exciting combination of various martial arts tournaments, events, and entertainment shows headlined by Brave 19 and the 10 international MMA bouts scheduled for the night.
“I had the privilege of meeting His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa at Brave International Combat Week in 2017 and, in passing, he mentioned why not bring Brave to South Africa”, says Jason van Schalkwyk, CEO and founder of Scuffle Media, partners of Brave CF in the Africa Combat Week.
“Just over one year later what was merely a dream and discussion has become a reality”, he continues. “Brave Combat Week Africa is the biggest combat sports event on the continent and will have a local Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament on December 6, a local MMA show on the 7th, and, of course, the headliner, Brave CF 19 on December 8. My goal of taking Brave to the top of Africa started with a conversation with a visionary, grew at the summit of Africas tallest mountain, and is being realized in the upcoming days in South Africa”.
The 2018 Brave Africa Combat Week takes place between December 6 and 8 at Sun City Resort, in the Northwest Province, in South Africa. Brave 19, the main attraction of the massive combat event, will be headlined by the clash of America’s Adam “Primetime” Townsend and the hometown hero Matt Hulme
