When the promotion arrives in Bali, Indonesia on November 26th, BRAVE CF 66 will serve as the ideal advertisement for BRAVE Combat Federation's wide and deep worldwide reach. Twenty athletes from all over the world will congregate in the largest archipelagic state on the planet in an effort to wow the BRAVE Nation at BRAVE CF 66.

When competitors from ten different nations compete, the world's fastest-growing MMA organisation will fully display its local and global character.

When BRAVE CF returns to Indonesia after a four-year absence, Bahrain, the Philippines, India, Singapore, Indonesia, South Africa, France, South Korea, Kazakhstan, and Australia will all be represented.

Four continents (Asia, Europe, Africa, and Australia) and eight regions (Western Europe, Africa/Middle East, Central Asia, Far East Asia, South-East Asia, Subcontinent, and Oceania) will be represented at the competition by athletes. South African Chad Hanekom, ranked number two in the BRAVE CF Middleweight division, will square off against South Korean In Jae La in the main event of BRAVE CF 66.

Asu Almabaev, one of BRAVE CF's top 125-pound fighters, will compete against Kenneth Maningat, a Filipino fighter making his BRAVE CF debut, in the evening's co-main event.

Five local Indonesian athletes will get the chance to raise their hands up and alter their life forever as part of BRAVE CF's commitment to empower every nation it visits during BRAVE CF 66.

When Fajar "Macho Kamacho" of Indonesia competes against SA's fifth-ranked BRAVE CF Bantamweight Nkosi Ndebele on the main show, he will have a tremendous chance to stake his claim for bragging rights in the Bantamweight class.

Oloan Silalahi competes against Wilem Natalex Munster, a fellow countryman, in the lone light heavyweight fight on the preliminary card. Locals Achterson Andre Rumainum and Randi Febian will make their professional ring debuts in the first fight of BRAVE 66.

The promotion will return to South-East Asia for the first time since BRAVE CF 12 was hosted in Jakarta in 2018. Following the triumph of BRAVE CF 12: KHK Legacy on May 11, 2018, which was a long-term goal region for BRAVE Combat Federation, Indonesia has been a priority since then. The year 2022 was a game-changing one for BRAVE CF.
