Frankie Edgar has confirmed at the Luke Thomas show that he will be taking up the role of a commentator for the very first time. The UFC veteran will be in Brazil for the first time to make his presence felt at the ringside for Brave 3: Battle in Brazil.
Frankie Edgar had been associated with KHK MMA and had been a close friend of the founder of Brave Combat Federation, Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa. Edgar (21-5-1) is a two-time UFC featherweight title contender and former UFC lightweight champion. The UFC veteran who has completed his 10-year anniversary with the UFC has recently signed a six-fight UFC contract. He will be joined at the ringside by ace commentator Cyrus Fees for the event in Brazil. Frankie Edgar was back in news as the former UFC lightweight champion would be taking on rising prospect and Yair Rodriguez at UFC 211.
“We are overwhelmed to welcome Frankie Edgar as our guest commentator. Our creative team always believed that explaining action through the perspective of a fighter will bring action closer and open a whole new perspective of experience for the audience. A veteran fighter giving his perspective through narration will be a way to go an extra mile in adding depth to the commentary. We tried this concept successfully at the previous editions of Brave with the amazing Jose “Shorty” Torres. Frankie Edgar is a longtime friend of His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad AL Khalifa. It is an honor to welcome him to the historic city of Curitiba.”, said Mohammed Shahid. President of Brave Combat Federation.
Brave 3: Battle in Brazil will be the first international installment of the Bahrain-based promotion, taking place on March 18th, in the city of Curitiba, Brazil.
It’s going to be an exceptional fight night in Curitiba!
