BRAVE Combat Federation has earned itself a name for being the most-international MMA promotion out there.

Athletes from all over the world call the brand home, and in August of this year Germany became the 28th country to host the brand, confirming BRAVE CF as the most-travelled mixed martial arts brand in the world. This achievement demonstrates BRAVE CF's dedication to promoting the sport internationally.

Ten athletes from the Middle East, North America, South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Nordic Europe, Central Asia, and the Subcontinent will descend upon Bahrain's Khalifa Sports City Arena this week in the first instalment of the renowned 2022 Kombat Kingdom series, showcasing BRAVE CF's huge international flavour and global footprint once more.
