BRAVE Combat Federation has revealed the full fight card for BRAVE 41 taking place in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The fight night showcases 7 fights including the championship title fight between Mohammed Fakhreddine from Lebanon and Daniel Pereira from Brazil.
The fight card will be a treat for combat sports fans. The most important fight to watch out for is indeed the return of the Arab MMA sensation, Mohammed Fakhreddine. With an iconic career-spanning 8 years, a win for Fakhreddine will be the crowning glory in his illustrious career and will make the Middleweight championship title relevant.
Combat Sambo World Champion – Ikram Aliskerov makes his return in the Middleweight division to face his fellow countryman Denis Tiuliulin. Aliskerov currently owns the record for most divisional wins with five of his six BRAVE CF victories coming at Middleweight.
Cian Cowley will undoubtedly be the most hated man on the island when he is set to face Ahmed Amir from KHK MMA Bahrain which is home to numerous talent from Dagestan, Russia. After the epic feud kickstarted by Conor McGregor, the Irish stars attracted heat from Dagestani fighters. At the pinnacle of the feud, Khabib humbled the Irish star to submission and later humiliated the Irish fight team in a brawl that broke out to assert the Dagestani supremacy.
The most interesting fight will undoubtedly be that of Abdulmanap Magomedov from KHK MMA and Rahmatullah Yousufzai. Abdulmanap Magomedov is a prodigy who is capable of becoming the bantamweight champion of the BRAVE Combat Federation. The bout marks his second with the promotion and will be an interesting watch.
The co-main event will feature a fight between Lucas martins who was carried away in a stretcher after facing the Pride of Palestine – Abdul Kareem Al Selwady and former BRAVE champion Luan ‘’Miau’’ Santiago whose championship legacy lasted one round. Ideally, Cian Cowley against Ahmed Amir will make a worthy co-main event due to its relevance.
The promotion has drawn inspiration from the huge success of The UFC Fight Island at Abu Dhabi and named the series of events as The Kombat Kingdom combining the elements of the highly popular video game series Mortal Kombat which corresponds to the idea of Fight Island and the Kingdom which is Bahrain.
