Marcel Adur doesn’t have specific targets, bar one. The Brave Combat Federation flyweight championship.

Brave have yet to crown a flyweight king, and with Adur (14-4) riding a three win streak under Brave, he’s confident he can become champion.

The Brazilian ace, 26, has yet to go the distance at Brave. All three of his fight have come by way of second round stoppage, his most recent at Brave 11 in Brazil.

When the Bahrain-based promotion pull the trigger on the championship, he’s going to be ready to go.

“There’s no specific target for my next fight”, said Adur in speaking to media this week.

“All I care about is fighting for that inaugural championship whenever Brave decides to release it for us. I know that this weight class is focused by the promotion to grow in the coming days, I feel I deserve that title, and become the champion who can make new contenders come down from Bantamweight.”

However, Adur is excited about the prospect of fighting in the Brave International Combat Week, in Bahrain. He admitted that he would want to perform this coming November, even if a title bout is not on the card.

“For sure, I would want to be included in that event. I train to always be ready to fight, I am always close to my weight, I come from three wins in a row, and truthfully I can’t wait to fight again.”

“Brave is always holding events and I’ll be ready whenever they want me to fight”, explained Adur, who is all praise for the way Brave have influenced the sport in Brazil and for athletes around the world.

“They (Brave) have immense attention to details. Like I said, they’re always putting on shows and they don’t let the ball drop, they’re all trying to put on better and better shows for the fans and fighters. Now by hosting the first ever global MMA event in Africa, Brave had made the stakes even higher for all major promotions in the world who were ignoring a continent completely. This also shows the commitment by the promotion towards the sport of mixed martial arts”, added Adur.

The promtion’s next outing hits Tangier, Morocco, on Saturday 18 August.
