BRAVE Combat Federation

BRAVE CF carves its path as the biggest sports media property in the Middle East

BRAVE Combat Federation, the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world, recently celebrated its fourth birthday on the eve of the start of its Kombat Kingdom series. The company also reached another important milestone recently. According to a report from the Daily Tribune, BRAVE CF has now reached a market valuation of US$ 500 million.

During these four years, the organization, founded by His Highness Shaikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the fifth son of the King of Bahrain, has hosted shows in 20 countries around the globe, with three of those events taking place in India - twice in Hyderabad and once in Mumbai.

BRAVE CF has also established several partnerships worldwide, and expanded globally within months of its inception - after the first two events took place in the Kingdom of Bahrain, the organization decided to move to Brazil for BRAVE CF 3, and continued to expand around the world. India’s first-ever international event was BRAVE CF 5, which took place in Mumbai in April of 2017.

The company has been able to achieve several other landmarks such as the first MMA organization to visit 20 countries in its first four years of operations and also the first international promotion to do an event in Africa. Overall, BRAVE CF has made three trips to Africa, with the first-ever international MMA show for the continent taking place in Morocco and two other events happening in South Africa.

BRAVE CF has also found other forms of revenue in its business model, expanding with official gyms, licensed products, and also national and international TV deals to broadcast their shows live and also on-demand.
