Seef District, Bahrain – Welterweight Tahar Hadbi is back. “Fast Hands” has signed a new deal with BRAVE Combat Federation and will return to the fold of the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world. The French-Algerian veteran was one-half of the first huge rivalry in the organization, between 2017 and 2018, when he had two epic bouts against Mohammad Fakhreddine, beating his arch-rival with a definitive KO to earn bragging rights in the rematch.
Before that, Hadbi was the main event of BRAVE CF’s first-ever show in India, when he and Carl Booth fought to a No Contest. After that, he aimed at a rivalry with “The Latest” Fakhreddine, and their much-anticipated first fight ended in a No Contest, making Hadbi the first-ever BRAVE CF fighter to fight to a No Contest twice in a row.
At BRAVE CF 10, in Jordan, he finally got the better of his rival, and the victory over Fakhreddine earned him a number-one contender’s bout against Jarrah Al-Selawe, who beat his teammate and friend David Bear in the same show.
A few months later, at BRAVE CF 12, Hadbi had a good performance but ended up on the losing side of a decision. He was commended for going the full three rounds, as he had his arm broken in the first round by a kick from the eventual two-time champion.

That was Hadbi’s last bout to date, as he has had to deal with numerous health issues, but “Fast Hands” has now made a full recovery and is fitter than ever. He’s ready to climb up the ladder up to the Welterweight throne in search of a rematch with reigning champ Al-Selawe.
The timeline for Hadbi’s return will be announced in the coming weeks as he looks to make a huge comeback after more than two years away from competition.
