Brave Combat Federation will be back in December following their blockbuster premier show, and it’s been announced that the show will take place in Khalifa Sports City, Bahrain.
This will come as thrilling news to all those involved in Brave: The Beginning, particularly the fans and the local fighters, who can look forward to fighting in front of their friends and family again.
Fight fans on Friday 23rd of September flocked to see the ten-fight special and they weren’t disappointed as seven out of ten scraps resulted in memorable finishes.
Not only were the crowd treat to a feast of fighting, but their two beloved fighters Hamza Kooheji and Mohamed Atif both secured impressive wins to inspire the people of Bahrain, where the surge in MMA popularity will no doubt continue.
Founder of ArabsMMA and KHK MMA Consultant Zahi Ephrem believes that despite the success of Brave’s first show, they will learn from this first show and plan to deliver a lot more in the next Bahrain show, before taking the product to Europe.
“This event, like any other first timer was a learning experience for all the team. A great job was done by everyone, throughout the entire spectrum of people involved on all levels. Our main focus were the fans and the fighters and we hope they enjoyed our show and KHK MMA’s hospitality. This is only the beginning, we will be back with more, and we are aiming for the top of the food chain in the MMA industry. Only the highest standards will be accepted and with Shaikh Khalid’s support and CEO Shahid’s constant planning and forward movement, it’s only a matter of time before the Brave becomes a major presence throughout the MMA world.”
Brave: The Beginning was a giant step forward for MMA in the middle-east and the presence of international media in Bahrain, together with the strong Filipino support for their fighter Stephen Loman, confirming that Mohamed Shahid’s vision is coming to fruition.
With the next show confirmed for Bahrain in December fighters throughout the middle-east will be clamoring to get on this card and showcase their skills to the world against top international opposition, as Egypt’s Ahmed Amir managed to do in his stunning upset of Richie “Boogeyman” Martinez.
With the following event set to be taken to Europe, Brave is set to begin its global adventure in 2017. For now, stay tuned for Brave 2 fight announcements in the coming weeks
