The Brave Combat Federation roster continues to expand, today adding Canadian featherweight Jeremy Kennedy (11-1) to their ranks.

‘JBC’ made his UFC debut on the Damien Maia v Carlos Condit card in Canada back in August 2016, securing a UD win over fellow Canadian Alex Ricci.

Wins followed in 2017 over Brazilian Rony Jason and Kyle Bochniak, again both going the distance. In February this year he picked up his first professional loss at the hands of Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 221: Romero v Rockhold.

The 25 year old trains at Xtreme Couture full time and is among the top upcoming talents in the world. S

Sources close to Kennedy revealed that he will be looking forward to fighting under the Brave banner some time around August this year.

“I chose Brave because when I went out a couple times to corner Gary Mangat, I really liked their team and how they ran things”, says Kennedy of this new step in his MMA career.

“Brave CF is one of the bigger organisations based out of Asia, so I wanted to test myself against some of the best international fighters in the world.”

Kennedy’s arrival to Brave should see him continue to fight at 145lbs in a division currently dominated by Saudi’s Elias Boudegzdame (15-4).

With featherweight arrivals being announced, details are on the way of new contenders for Brave’s flyweight and middleweight divisions. Following a successful European debut in Belfast earlier this month, the promotion has already indicated they will be upping their efforts for the UK and Ireland this year and next.
