Rolando Dy will make another appearance this month in the fastest-growing promotion in the globe, thus BRAVE Combat Federation fans have not seen the last of the former BRAVE CF competitor.

Following his retirement in September, Dy rejoins BRAVE CF, but this time it will be as a mentor and coach as he seeks to lead the next wave of Filipino MMA.

His journey will start this month in BRAVE CF 66 in Bali, Indonesia, where he will mentor Ruel Panales, a fellow countryman, and help him get used to the demands of competing in one of the toughest MMA competitions in the world, BRAVE Combat Federation.

The 25-year-old bantamweight trains at Dy's gym, Dyincredible Fighting and Fitness Center in Calabarzon, and enters BRAVE CF unblemished and on a five-fight winning streak. His most recent victory came at UAE Warriors earlier this year via doctor's stoppage over Russia's Magomed Gadzhimuradov.

When he faces the dangerous Indian MMA veteran Mohammad Farhad, who will be eager to get back to winning ways after losing to Egypt's Maysara Mohamed at BRAVE CF 57 earlier this year, he will want to establish himself in the BRAVE CF Bantamweight class.

A few times after losing to Kazakhstan's Olzhas Eskaraev, Dy ended a glorious career with BRAVE CF 62. The spectacular 27-fight professional career of "The Incredible," who worked his way up to become the most renowned and accomplished mixed martial artist in his country, came to an end.

Dy has participated in six international promotions. He has millions of followers who love him for both his nice disposition and his skill to stage amazing bouts.

In the BRAVE CF cage, Dy impressively flew the Philippine flag nine times. When he received the BRAVE CF 2020 "Fighter of the Year" honour, it was one of his most memorable experiences while competing under the BRAVE Combat Federation banner.

The fact that Dy has competed against some of the top mixed martial fighters in the world and is known as "The Incredible" will benefit any athlete greatly. Panales, who has developed a close relationship with the former great, will be well-positioned to succeed when he makes his debut on November 26 against the dangerous Farhad with Dy on his side.
