Brave 14 is on the way.
Brave Combat Federation confirmed on Wednesday that preparations are well underway for the followup to Brave 13: European Evolution.
With web chatter suggesting a possible event in South Africa, Spain and the Philippines – home to Bantamweight champion Stephen Loman – official word should come through this week.
It’s barely a month since Brave made their European debut with a stacked card at the SSE Arena in Belfast. That night saw Bantamweight champion Stephen Loman successfully defend his title from the clutches of Frans Mlambo, while Northern Ireland’s ‘Stormin’ Norman Parke took a win over Kilkenny’s ‘Magic’ Myles Price in the night’s co-main event.
Brave have already indicated in the wake of Belfast that they will be putting a heavy concentration on Ireland, the UK and expansion into Europe, so could Spain be next up? Recent signings might also hint at a trip to South Africa with JP Buys linking up with Brave on a multi-fight deal.
Whatever way the cards fall, Brave 14 will make the beginning of the second phase of the series of events for the promotion in 2018. The second phase also includes the 2018 Brave International Combat Week which also features 2018 IMMAF World Championships. That outing is set for Bahrain this coming November.
“We aim to reach out to geographical destinations that will make a difference in the growth of the sport of mixed martial arts”, says Mohammed Shahid, President of Brave Combat Federation.
“At the moment though the sport is growing, the growth is concentrated in certain geo locations. We aim to make the sport truly global and Brave Combat Federation is the only global promotion that has the advantage and resources to make it happen.”.
Strong words, but their recent outing to Belfast was a major show of intent and hugely successful one at at.
