The first instalment of the legendary BRAVE CF Kombat Kingdom series promises to be an absolute banger with the BRAVE CF Super Welter and Bantamweight belts on the line at BRAVE CF 63, which takes place this Wednesday in Bahrain.
In the first of three events that make up the most recent Kombat Kingdom series, BRAVE Nation has plenty of top-notch MMA action to look forward to aside from the title battles.
See the list of three competitors to keep an eye out for below!
The fourth-ranked Super Welterweight in Russia, Kamal Magomedov, squares off against the fifth-ranked Finn, Olli Santalahti, in the third bout on the BRAVE CF 63 event. This matchup has the potential to determine the top contender. Many foreign fighters appreciate Kamal and believe he will soon become a world champion.
In his BRAVE CF debut, he immediately submitted fellow countryman Vitaly Tverdokhlebo with a devastating armbar in the opening frame of their BRAVE CF 55 contest. He is still unbeaten in his professional career.
The former Titan FC Welterweight champion is an absolute nightmare, having finished every battle in the opening round of every contest with three KO/TKOs and six submits.
There is a really special talent in the BRAVE CF Featherweight division who is gradually gaining confidence. Nemat "Eagle" Abdrashitov, the fifth-ranked BRAVE CF Featherweight in Kyrgyzstan, will meet Marcos Vinicius Costa of Brazil in the BRAVE CF cage. Abdrashitov currently has a five-match winning streak. At BRAVE CF 59 earlier this year, he defeated Alikhon Khasanov of Uzbekistan via first-round knockout.
However, Eagle's BRAVE CF debut last year, when he miraculously defeated Russian Anzor Abdulkhozhaev at BRAVE CF 47, was what really caught everyone's attention. When Abdulkhozhaev locked in a deep ninja choke on Abdrashitov in the second round of their battle, the referee had to pay particular attention to the fighter's body language since he appeared to be about to tap or nod off.
Soon after, Nemat shifted expertly to break free of the hold before lowering and shaking his opponent to earn a decisive knockout victory.
Additionally, it was the first time Abdulkhozhaev was knocked out, which was a significant plus for Abdrashitov. With two finishes in as many battles, the Combat Sambo pupil has left a lasting impression on the BRAVE CF supporters. This week at BRAVE CF 63, he hopes to move up the rankings and get closer to a title fight.
Abbas Khan is a unique competitor for the KHK Team Bahrain. Khan was primarily a boxer, but he has broadened his skill set in recent years and has used his newly discovered wrestling skills to defeat certain opponents.
But when asked, he would always cite boxing as both his personal preference and the most effective means to end a battle. The 2018 IMMAF African champion is seeking to start a winning streak that can take him to the top of the heat - both at Super Lightweight and Super Welterweight - as he makes his eagerly awaited return to action against Italy's Michael Realy.
