Ahmed Amir Hints Drop to 70kg, eyeing Brave strap


Brave Combat Federation posted a video of the Egyptian MMA fighter Ahmed ” The Butcher ” Amir (7-1-0) while training with ‘Team Warlions’ in their headquarters in Kuwait. The clip highlighted some basic drills and an important short direct message from Amir. He stated that he is now a Brave lightweight fighter and he will be taking home the belt soon.

After only a few days of his verbalized frustration to ArabsMMA about the lack of recognition from the Brave promotion it looks like he put his business face on and is ready to push harder.

Despite having lost his professional debut in the lightweight division four years ago in Desert Force 9, Amir went on to win six consecutive battles in catchweight and welterweight divisions. Though he was though of as an underdog in both his Brave bouts, Amir dismantled Richie Martinez in his promotional debut and went on to put Kevin Koldobskey to sleep ( check video below ) in the 74kg catchweight category in Brave 4, Abu Dhabi.

Following in the footsteps of Ottman Azaitar, this fighters move from welterweight to lightweight, is going to take a run for the title. One thing is for sure, this Egyptian will have a size advantage in the 70KG division over most others.

It’s going to be interesting to see who the promotion will match Amir with when he makes the move. A fight against a fighter with two wins within the promotion would be ideal, for example Abdul- Kareem Selwady (7-1-0) or Ottman Azaitar (8-0-0) could be two possible options.

” My next appearance will mark the third fight under Brave CF. I expect a worthy opponent that puts me in title contention. At this point, i don’t care who stands in my way, I am there to get that belt. “
