The competitors have already lived up to the title of the third and final leg of Kombat Kingdom: Rumble in the Kingdom, if the ceremonial weigh-ins for BRAVE CF 65 are any indication. As 22 gladiators gear up for battle in the Kingdom of Bahrain, tension amongst the combatants on the 11-fight schedule permeated the Khalifa Sports City Arena.

There is no love lost between Colombia's Eduardo Mora and Bahrain's Hamza Kooheji in the main event. If appearances could kill, Kooheji and Mora wouldn't be competing in tomorrow's important intercontinental Featherweight match because they wouldn't even shake hands after making weight.

“This is my biggest fight too, I will give my 100 percent. Before my fights, I shake hands with my family as I am about to go to war. Till the day I die, I will enter the cage,” said Kooheji who desperately seeks redemption after losing out on a Bantamweight title in his last bout. “I am coming here not to just fight, but I am here to kill,” added the Bahraini MMA star.

The pride of Colombian MMA, Eduardo Mora, who refused to be scared by his more skilled opponent, is poised to enter his greatest bout yet and is carrying the entire continent of Latin America on his shoulders.

“It is an absolute honor to represent Colombia in Bahrain. To represent my friends and family … I promise, tomorrow is going to be an unforgettable night for many,” said the Road to BRAVE CF winner.

Jordan's Izzedine Al-Derbani stole the show in the co-main event and nearly took the house down with his electrifying temperament. The "Palestinian Samurai" found the experience to be so thrilling that he tore off his clothes and broke his shades in an effort to show BRAVE NATION his wild side.

Before Jose "Shorty" Torres and Al-Derbani engaged in their Bantamweight match, the BRAVE CF debutant had to be ushered back to the scale to make his weight official. BRAVE CF President Mohammed Shahid kept a close eye on the edgy and aggressive Al-Derbani, who was all up in "Shorty's" space before their fight.
