BRAVE Combat Federation, Bahrain's biggest-ever sports enterprise, has a deep relationship with India, having hosted three events in the country thus far and having massive support from the MMA-loving locals, as the only truly global promotion in the world to host events and invest in the country's MMA scene. And 2020 promises to be yet another exciting year for Bahrain and India sports.
BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid recently met with Rajeev Shukla, former chairman of the IPL, and they talked about different areas of cooperations that could be mutually beneficial for both countries and their sporting scenes. Mr. Shukla made it a point to thank His Highness Shaikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa for the impact he has made in the sports industry in India through mixed martial arts, as well as congratulating His Highness for his part in the development of sports in Bahrain.
At the meeting, that was also attended by Mr. Mohammed Mansoor, managing director for Exelon and chairman of Saara Group, they discussed the future of BRAVE Combat Federation and mixed martial arts in India, as well as cricket in Bahrain.
Different areas of cooperation between the two nations and their respective sporting futures were also discussed in Mr. Shukla's visit to the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Since its inception in 2016, BRAVE Combat Federation has counted on India as one of its premier areas of development. The fastest-growing organization in the world hopes to empower the India MMA scene not only by giving its fighters the much-deserved international exposure they crave, but also putting on global events in areas such as Mumbai and Hyderabad.
