BRAVE Combat Federation’s much-anticipated return to Brazil has a new main event. BRAVE CF 60, scheduled for July 30th, in Goiânia, will feature former world champion Lucas ‘’Mineiro’’ Martins taking on local superstar Henrique Marques in a Lightweight bout.
Martins was scheduled to take on a fellow former titleholder in Amin Ayoub, but the Frenchman has been forced to pull out due to injury. ‘’Mineiro’’ maintains his place at the top of the bill and now takes on Marques.
Lucas is in search of redemption after a couple of losses since he first became BRAVE CF champion. A staple of mixed martial arts in Brazil, he might not have the support of the crowd in Goiânia.
That’s because he will be taking on a local star in Henrique, who is born and bred in Goiânia and will look for his international breakthrough following a respectable 8-1 start to his MMA career.
In the co-main event, another former Lightweight world champion will be in action as Luan ‘’Miau’’ Santiago takes on Moldova’s Mihail Cotruta in a Super Lightweight tilt. Also set for fight night are the much-anticipated returns of the likes of Asu Almabaev, Zach Makovsky, Leonardo Mafra, and more.
BRAVE CF 60 marks the fifth time the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world lands in Brazil with Goiânia becoming the third city to host a BRAVE CF event, after Curitiba and Belo Horizonte.
