BRAVE Combat Federation returns to the Kingdom of Bahrain, for the second consecutive week with BRAVE CF 42, on September 24th. The promotion released the full fight card of the event and it brings 12 different nations represented inside the cage, apart from the first round of the prestigious Flyweight World Title Tournament.

The 12 countries, from four different continents, sending fighters to BRAVE CF 42 are United States, Finland, Russia, Brazil, Bahrain, Wales, Kyrgyzstan, Sweden, France, Philippines, Poland, and India.

The Bahrain-based organization has consistently put together cards featuring dozens of international athletes.

Another huge highlight of BRAVE CF 42, the second stop of the “Kombat Kingdom” series, is the Flyweight World Title Tournament, the eight-men knockout bracket that will decide the inaugural BRAVE Combat Federation Flyweight champion of the world.

Three of the first four quarter-finals are scheduled to take place during BRAVE CF 42, with the clash between fellow-countrymen Jose “Shorty” Torres and Sean “Shorty Rock” Santella headlining the card.

The other two tournament bouts scheduled are Zach Makovsky vs Abdul Hussein and Flavio Queiroz vs Velimurad Alkhasov. The fourth and final first-round match was postponed due to Brazil’s Marcel Adur surgery. The date of his bout against Dustin Ortiz is yet to be confirmed. Makovsky has advanced to the semi-finals after Hussein had to pull out due to illness. 

Indian MMA fighter Ariz Ahmad Khan will be in action on the card when he fights Ali Yaqoob of Bahrain.

Ariz, who had previously represented India at the IMMAF World Championships had a good run in the Indian amateur scene where he fought at Underground Fight Nights in Mumbai as well. Ali, meanwhile, has an impressive amateur career of his own. He comes in with plenty of experience at the IMMAF stage where he has picked up multiple accolades.

For the host-country Bahrain, the most important fight of the night is, without a doubt, Hamza “The Pride of Bahrain” Kooheji vs Aidan James, from Wales. Hamza is the most popular Bahraini fighter after and will face James, arguably, the toughest test of his career so far. A win over the Welsh prodigy can put him in the picture for a Bantamweight title shot
