Abbas Khan entered BRAVE CF 71 with a strong determination to validate the words of BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid, who proclaimed him as Pakistan's top fighter. True to Shahid's statement, Khan proved himself by delivering a relentless performance against Omar Hussein, showcasing a level of maturity beyond his years.
Despite having only five professional fights under his belt before last Monday, Khan relied on the qualities that made him Pakistan's number one fighter according to Shahid. His background in amateur sports and participation in multiple disciplines, combined with his physicality, cardio, and training with world-class partners, contributed to another successful outing in BRAVE CF.
This impressive performance did not go unnoticed, and with a current record of 5-1, Khan now sets his sights on tougher opponents in BRAVE Combat Federation's ever-expanding Super Lightweight division. However, his journey so far has not been without challenges. Coming from humble beginnings, Abbas embarked on a quest for a better life for himself and his family in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Starting from the bottom with odd jobs, including working in fast-food chains as a cleaner and delivery boy, his aspirations shifted when he discovered and fell in love with MMA.
This newfound passion changed everything for Abbas Khan, motivating him to pursue a clear goal: to become the first Pakistani world champion in the world's most prominent MMA organization. As he establishes himself as Pakistan's leading athlete in mixed martial arts, Abbas demonstrated his tenacity by securing a unanimous decision and unveiling new dimensions to his well-rounded MMA skills.
