BRAVE CF 80 fight card

The most global MMA organization in the world will close out 2023 with a historic fight card. BRAVE Combat Federation has announced the full fight card for BRAVE CF 80, set to take place in Bahrain, on December 15. It will feature some of the top fighters on the company’s roster, the best amateur female fighter of all time. Adding to that, a special duel between the UK & Ireland and Arab Legends will make the core of the event.
In the main event of the evening, Jose ‘’Shorty’’ Torres defends his Bantamweight world title against Nkosi Ndebele. In this immediate rematch of their bout back at BRAVE CF 73 ‘’Shorty’’ won the vacant title after a razor-thin split decision win over Ndebele.

Before Torres and Ndebele run it back for the title, an Arab legend returns!  Jarrah Al-Silawi, the fighter with the most victories in BRAVE CF history returns in a feature bout at Middleweight. He takes on Nenad Avramovich, looking to become the first fighter in history to earn 10 BRAVE CF wins.
