BRAVE Combat Federation’s second show in Kazakhstan is beginning to take shape with the first fighters confirmed to be in action on August 21st, in Almaty. In association with Octagon League, BRAVE CF 53 will bring some of the top international fighters to face off with Kazakhstan’s finest.
In the first round of announcements, Featherweight Tae Kyun Kim has been revealed as taking part in BRAVE CF 53. Undefeated in his professional career, the South Korean star is coming off the biggest win of his career - as he TKO’d previously fellow undefeated fighter Husein Kadimagomaev at BRAVE CF 47. ‘’Ares’’ is one of the brightest talents coming out of South Korean and has established himself as one of the top Featherweight stars at BRAVE CF.
Tae Kyun Kim is joined by Flyweight Flavio de Queiroz, who is one of the top Brazilians in his weight class. Flavio impressed in his last outing, as he took BRAVE CF Flyweight tournament finalist Velimurad Alkhasov to the distance in their quarter-final bout back at BRAVE CF 42. Queiroz trains under former BRAVE CF Lightweight world champion Lucas ‘’Mineiro’’ Martins at the Capital da Luta gym.
BRAVE CF 53 will mark the second time the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world will organize an event in Kazakhstan. The first time was back in March of 2017, when BRAVE CF 6 was headlined by future Super Lightweight champion Eldar Eldarov, who earned the second victory of his BRAVE CF career when he stopped Henrique Rasputin in the first round.
