Welterweight prospect Benoit St. Denis has penned a long-term new deal with BRAVE Combat Federation, officials announced today. The undefeated French fighter has impressed so far as a professional and has been given a new contract after putting on a clinic against Ivica Truscek back at BRAVE CF 34 - beating his foe with a picture-perfect kneebar submission in the first round.
St. Denis is undefeated so far in his career and made his promotional debut with a No Contest against Pawel Kielek after an accidental headbutt connected with his forehead and opened up a gash. Before that, "The God of War" put a four-fight winning streak, having only made his professional debut in 2019.
With a new deal on his table, Benoit hopes the second semester is as busy as his first year in MMA, as he has put himself in contention for a possible fight since BRAVE Combat Federation has announced it will host events once again.
"I'm very happy to be a part of the BRAVE CF family. I'd like to thank His Highness Shaikh Khalid and (Mohammed) Shahid for the opportunity of being a BRAVE CF fighter. It's been amazing so far, starting with BRAVE CF 28 in Romania, when I made my debut. I'm ready to go to war again very soon, and I'm very happy that the fights are getting back, and we're going to have some more wars for BRAVE Combat Federation", said St. Denis.
A French Special Forces veteran, St. Denis has only competed professionally since last year but has been able to forge a strong 5-0-0, 1 NC professional record which he hopes to improve as soon as possible now that he has a new contract and BRAVE CF is bound to return to its activities.
