BRAVE Combat Federation's third straight event in Sweden takes place once again in Stockholm, tomorrow, as Tahar Hadbi looks to make a successful comeback against Greece's Giannis Bachar in the main event. The show will also feature some of the best up-and-coming Swedish stars, a staple of BRAVE CF's European shows - to broadcast and showcase the best local talent wherever it goes.
The partnership with Bulldog Fight Nights has helped BRAVE Combat Federation identify some of the top talents from Sweden, and since BRAVE CF 37, the first show in Swedish soil, the fastest-growing organization in MMA has been putting the spotlight on the likes of Bianca Antman, Irman Smaljic, Anton Turkalj, amongst others. All three of the aforementioned names have scored monumental wins in their international debuts.
Antman went viral with her head-kick knockout of the tough Veera Nykanen at BRAVE CF 37. A fellow IMMAF World Champion, Irman Smaljic had a dominant performance against Fatih Aktas in the co-main event while Anton Turkalj TKO'd Athanasios Chergkeletzis in the first round.
At BRAVE CF 38, the Swedish coming-out party to the MMA world continued in full swing with Elin Oberg scoring the biggest win of her young career against Malin Hermansson, and David Jacobsson, Robert Nystrom, and Jonny Touma also getting huge victories in their BRAVE CF debuts.
As BRAVE CF 39 approaches, the pressure to continue the Sweden Invasion in BRAVE Combat Federation rests at the shoulders of the likes of Andreas Gustafsson, Tobias Harila, and Sahil Siraj. All three men have tall orders in front of them, but they could use this opportunity to showcase once again why Sweden has become a hotbed for mixed martial arts in Europe.
