As an international hub for Mixed Martial Arts, Brazil has been home to some of the most extraordinary events in the sport’s young history.
After successfully landing in the country with its 3rd installment ( Brave 3: Battle in Brazil ) last March, Brave Combat Federation is set for a quick return in August, according to leading MMA website Combate.com.
Not only that, but a championship bout might serve as the main event for Brave’s second event in Brazil. Officials told Combate.com that a title fight is “probable” for the event, who will be held on August 12th, most likely in Curitiba. The southern city was truly welcoming the first time and is home to world-class gyms such as the legendary Chute Boxe, CM System and Rasthai.
With talks related to Fakhreddine fighting for the title in Brazil, it looks like former UFC fighter Lucas “Mineiro” Martins has the lead on that spot. After debuting for Brave in Curitiba winning with a slick submission over Mexican Fabián Galván in the main event, the Brazilian was promised a title shot against Brave featherweight champion Elias Boudegzdame.
The company counts among its ranks other local athletes such as Brazil’s Fighter of the Year Luan “Miau” Santiago, former UFC Welterweight Leonardo “Macarrão” Mafra, X-Gym products Vinícius “Thunder” Cruz and Paulo “Bananada” Silva, Thiago “Monstro” Vieira and Flyweight standout Felipe Efrain.
