Former world champion Amin Ayoub is set to make his comeback and reclaim his throne in the MMA world. The French fighter, previously a BRAVE Combat Federation Lightweight titleholder, will return to action under the BRAVE CF banner at the organization's debut show in France. The event, held in association with HEXAGONE MMA, is scheduled to take place on September 7 at the prestigious H Arena in Nantes, Ayoub's hometown.

Ayoub joined the most global MMA promotion in 2019 and quickly made a name for himself with a third-round submission victory over Djamil Chan at BRAVE CF 31 in South Africa. He then stunned the world with a spectacular right hook knockout of Cleiton "Predator" to become only the second Frenchman to capture a BRAVE CF world title at BRAVE CF 44.

Although Ayoub was supposed to face Ahmed Amir at BRAVE CF 50, his opponent withdrew due to injury. Instead, Ayoub faced dangerous wrestler Mashrabjon Ruziboev in a non-title contest and emerged victorious. However, he later lost the title to Ahmed Amir at BRAVE CF 54 in a thrilling bout that was nominated for the 2021 BRAVE CF Fight of the Year award.

Since then, Ayoub has secured several significant victories on the local circuit and is now determined to climb back up to the top of the Lightweight division, currently led by Abdisalam Kubanychbek from Kyrgyzstan. Interestingly, Ayoub and Kubanychbek were scheduled to face each other at BRAVE CF 57, but the bout was cancelled as Ayoub fell ill in the weeks leading up to the fight.

BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid expressed his excitement about Ayoub's return, hailing him as a BRAVE CF legend. Shahid looks forward to witnessing Ayoub's comeback in his hometown and believes the event will be a historic night for the global MMA industry.

BRAVE CF 74 will showcase the partnership between BRAVE CF and HEXAGONE MMA, one of Europe's leading MMA organizations. The event will take place at the H Arena, one of France's premier sporting venues, promising an unforgettable night of MMA action.
