Boudegzdame: ” The Smile will not be American, but Arabic” At Brave 2


Elias Boudegzdame (12-4), the 23-year-old smiling Algerian with the world at his feet, has expressed his pride after signing a multi-fight deal with Brave Combat Federation.

Former Desert Force fighter Elias “Smile” Boudegzdame is young. But he has already impressed the MMA world with his incredibly slick ground game and lethal Jiu-Jitsu. Brave has handed him the monstrous task of fighting the veteran American star Walel Watson (13-8), who has already fought at the top of the game and has finished every opponent he defeated.

This will be an almighty featherweight clash between two highly skilled athletes. Yet, the young Boudegzdame believes he can claim the biggest win of his career against a huge name in MMA.

“I am going to show the world the results of my hard training on the perfect stage,” he said. ”I am young but I am hungry! Many very famous fighters have signed with Brave and it’s an amazing opportunity for me to fight against one of them.”

This is the latest in a string of epic bouts which the promotion has announced for the upcoming Brave 2: Dynasty on December 2nd.

The event will feature the first ever Brave world title fight as Masio Fullen (11-6) meets Alan Omer (19-5) in the headliner.

The thrilling fight card is evidence of Mohammed Shahid’s vision coming to fruition. Brave CEO has promised to bring the world’s stars to Bahrain before taking Bahrain to the rest of the world.

Boudegzdame admitted his excitement in signing for the new promotion, and for the challenge faces with in “The Gazelle” Watson from Team Hurricane Awesome.

He added:

“It’s a huge promotion, young but very influential in the world. We are going to fight everywhere on the planet. Of course, this is a big chance for me to prove myself at a global scale.”

“I am proud to represent the country of my mother and father, Algeria, which runs through my veins. Also, I am grateful for the opportunity to fight Walel in my first fight. That’s my job and that’s sport but in the end i hope “the smile” will not be American, but Arabic.”

Brave 2: Dynasty takes place on December 2nd at Khalifa Sports Center, Isa, Bahrain. Additionally, tickets are available now via and in selected outlets around Bahrain.
