BRAVE CF becomes the most globally-hosted MMA promotion

A brand synonymous with breaking records and barriers, BRAVE Combat Federation officially became the most global mixed martial arts organization in the history of the sport on August 6th, when BRAVE CF 61 kicked off in Bonn, Germany.

With the addition of Germany to the host countries list, BRAVE CF has now traveled to 28 countries in less than six years, surpassing second-placed UFC, who has hosted shows in 27 nations overall.

Since September 23rd 2016, with BRAVE CF 1, the fastest-growing MMA promotion in the world has gone around the globe literally, hosting shows in Bahrain, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, India, Kazakhstan and Mexico in its first full year of operations.

The number of countries was extended between 2017 and 2018, when BRAVE CF inaugurated its brand in Jordan, Indonesia, Northern Ireland, Morocco, and Colombia.

In its third year of operations, BRAVE CF rapidly picked up the pace, hosting shows in Pakistan, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Philippines, and England. After that, the organization added Romania, Kyrgyzstan, Slovenia, and Sweden to the list, eventually crossing the 20-country barrier with a series of four shows hosted in Stockholm, in mid-2020.

In 2021, BRAVE CF went back on the road to help empower mixed martial arts in Europe, hosting events in Russia, Belarus, Italy, Poland, Serbia, and kicked off 2022 with shows in new territories such as South Korea and Uzbekistan.

On August 6th, BRAVE Combat Federation reached the biggest milestone in its six-year history, and has become the most-traveled organization in MMA. From BRAVE CF 1 to BRAVE CF 61, it took the promotion 2144 days to reach that landmark, an impressive mark, given that the UFC needed 9452 days to get to 27 countries.

Aside from the record-breaking BRAVE CF 61, other milestones include BRAVE CF being the only international MMA organization to host an event in Africa, as well as putting together the first international mixed martial arts show in several other nations.


BRAVE Combat Federation’s vision is to change mixed martial arts from an event business to a sports business and to provide MMA fighters with the opportunity to showcase their talents on a global platform.

Since its inception nearly six years ago, BRAVE CF has established itself as the fastest-growing mixed martial arts organization in the world, having now traveled to a record-breaking 28 countries in 61 events.
