Brave 1 headliner Abdulkareem Al Selwady took it to social media on Friday to announce his Brave return at Brave 4 taking place on the 31st of March.
Brave Combat Federation lightweight contender Abdulkareem Al Selwady was last seen fighting when he faced his long time rival Rami Aziz in a non-title headliner at Brave 1: The Beginning. The event took place on the 23rd of September at Khalifa Sports City, in Isa Town, Bahrain.
Al Selwady, who has been training under coach Ashraf Shishani, has announced through his official Facebook account that he will be back in the cage. He did not give out an opponent or a location, whoever ArabsMMA confirmed the announcement.
Prior to Brave 4 which will take place in Abu Dhabi, the promotion will be heading to Brazil for its third installment (Brave 3: Battle). This will be its first international event. It will take place in the city of Curitiba and will be headlined by a much anticipated battle between Lucas Mineiro and Paolo Bananada.
Al Selwady (6-1) is highly regarded as the man to beat in the fresh Brave lightweight division. His performance at Brave 1 turned heads when he manhandled the well-conditioned Aziz (8-4) the way he did.
He was recently called out by a former TUF Latin America contestant Alejandro Martinez. This news made huge waves in the middle eastern MMA scene. However, since Al Selwady is already booked, this fight would have to wait.
It is almost impossible to speculate who might be Al Selwady’s opponent. Brave Combat Federation has been constantly adding new talent from all over the world to its roster. Among the newly inked fighters are Brazilians Luan “Miau” Santiago, Júlio César “Morceguinho” Neves (32-1), Lucas Mineiro (18-3) and Paulo “Bananada“ Goncalves (21-11).
The most recent addition was Italian top welterweight Daniel Scatizzi (7-2). Also signed are South African star Jeremy Smith (9-3) and British multi champion Charlie Leary (13-7-1).
One thing is for sure, this young prospect will surely be matched with a test that will prove his worth.
