BRAVE Combat Federation will make its much-anticipated debut in Italy and has finalized a tremendous fight card for BRAVE CF 52: Bad Blood. The show, which takes place on August 1st, in association with The Golden Cage, has received one last addition - with another former world champion confirmed for action.
Abdoul ‘’The Lazy King’’ Abdouraguimov will look for his third straight win as he takes on sensation Nursulton Ruziboev in a Catchweight bout of 81 kg to round up the card, which is headlined by a grudge match between current Middleweight champion Mohammad Fakhreddine and Mohamed Said Maalem, who will fight for the vacant Light Heavyweight world title.
The fight card will also feature former Featherweight titleholder Elias Boudegzdame, who is known as the first-ever BRAVE CF champion. He will return to action against Declan Dalton. BRAVE CF 52: Bad Blood will have the hometown hero Enrico Cortese in the co-main event - he takes on world-class grappler Rustam Chsiev in a Middleweight bout.
The show will also feature a pair of big Lightweight bouts as Husein Kadimagomaev and Ayub Gaziev look for victories against Agshin Babaev and Valeriu Mircea, respectively, as well as a Bantamweight battle between IMMAF world champion Gamzat Magomedov and BRAVE CF Breakout Fighter of The Year Mochamed Machaev.
BRAVE CF 52 will turn Italy into the eight different European countries visited by BRAVE Combat Federation, after Northern Ireland, England, Romania, Slovenia, Sweden, Russia, and Belarus, solidifying the organization’s stance as having the most active MMA market share in Europe, and dedication towards fostering the European mixed martial arts scene.
