Brave 9 weigh-in results: One fight scrapped, yet many HEATED (VIDEO)

ArabsMMA was on scene and reporting live from Brave 9’s public weigh-ins which took place tonight [Thursday November 16, 2017] at Khalifa Sports City Arena, Bahrain. On the eve of Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions, the 15 fighters involved in the groundbreaking event tipped the scales in front of fans and MMA royalty as the likes of Coach John Kavanagh, Darren Till, Ilir Latifi, former Pride champion Wanderlei Silva and former UFC titleholder Frankie Edgar were in attendance to lend their support to the show.

All fights for Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions fight card are official, but the card lost a featherweight title defense bout after Lucas Martins Mineiro was unable to make weight for his match-up with the champ Elias Boudegzdame.

Boudegdzdame hit the scale first at 65.1Kg for the featherweight bout, but Mineiro came in 4Kg’s, well over the weight limit.

Definitely a big upset as Algerian pride Elias Boudegzdame was slated to face ex-UFC veteran Lucas Martins in his much anticipated first title defense and also, the championship’s first title defense fight since its launch in September 2016.

Hamza Kooheji vs. Mohamed Farhad has been upgraded to the main card. The face-offs got heated between many fighters and the videos are here to prove it.
