BRAVE Combat Federation's return to action won't have Mohammad Fakhreddine in its main event. Officials have announced that "The Latest" has been unable to fly into Romania due to Covid-19 restrictions that have been recently imposed in the country. That means Enrico Cortese will now face kickboxer Claudiu Alexe at BRAVE CF 35 in a Catchweight of 88 kg.

"The Latest" Fakhreddine will have to wait for his number one contender's bout as a win against Cortese would guarantee him a shot at reigning Middleweight world champion Daniel "Gaucho". For Cortese, a bout against MMA newcomer 18-5 (kickboxing record) Alexe is a chance to keep active and showcase that he's ready to be in the conversation for a title shot of his own at the organization.

Aside from a change in the main event, BRAVE CF can also confirm that Abou Tounkara will now take on Marvin Belecciu, and the new co-main event of BRAVE CF 35 will be the Heavyweight duel between Ion Grigore and Mamadou Lamine Sene.

Finally, a new bout has been added to the fight card, with local Bantamweights Mihal Laurentiu and Ioan Vranceanu and Welterweights Mirel Dragan and Olaru Marian having the chance to shine on the international stage set by the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world.

BRAVE CF 35 updated fight card:

  • Catchweight (88kg): Enrico Cortese vs Claudiu Alexe
  • Heavyweight: Ion Grigore vs Mamadou Lamine Sene
  • Flyweight: Ana Maria Pal vs Malin Hermansson
  • Lightweight: Marvin Belecclu vs Aboubakar Tounkara
  • Bantamweight: Mihal Laurentiu Iorga vs Ioan Vranceanu
  • Welterweight: Mirel Dragan vs Olaru Marian
