BRAVE Nation enthusiasts are in for an exhilarating spectacle in the upcoming week, as a riveting clash between two world-class finishers is set to unfold at BRAVE CF 73. An eleventh-hour alteration has thrust Brazil's kickboxing virtuoso, Luiz Cado, into a showdown with compatriot and formidable closer, Willker Lemos, in a high-stakes Super Welterweight contest. This electrifying battle is poised to captivate the main card of BRAVE CF 73, slated for August 12 in Bogota, Colombia.

Initially slated to square off against Panama's esteemed global sensation, Vernon Ramos, Cado encountered a change in the script due to Ramos' withdrawal on medical grounds. With a mere fortnight remaining until Colombia's third installment of BRAVE CF, the diligent efforts of BRAVE CF Athlete Relations and matchmakers bore fruit, securing a worthy adversary befitting the grandeur of this fight card, which culminates the Pan-American Combat Week spanning from August 10 to August 13. Fondly known as the 'Golden Boy,' Cado kindled excitement in his BRAVE CF debut, punctuating it with a resounding third-round knockout of Luis Felipe Dias at BRAVE CF 60 last year. Sporting an impressive tally of eleven finishes, encompassing eight KO/TKOs and three submissions, the 'Golden Boy' is resolutely averse to prolonging battles.

The taste of triumph on a global stage has only intensified Cado's fervor for further conquests, propelling him forward on his unwavering mission to ascend the pinnacle of the martial arts world. As he ventures once more into the BRAVE CF arena, he does so against the backdrop of what is poised to be the largest mixed martial arts extravaganza in Colombia.

Opposing him will stand an equally potent force. Willker 'Feijao' Lemos, renowned for his prowess in the art of submission with six rear-naked choke stoppages, simultaneously wields formidable power in his fists, boasting three KO/TKOs. Holding an undefeated record since 2021, 'Feijao' has surged ahead with his latest conquest entailing a unanimous decision victory over the esteemed Brazilian Rodrigo Sezinando, delivering the latter his maiden professional defeat.

The grand stage for this enthralling spectacle is none other than the Coliseo El Salitre, nestled in the heart of the Colombian capital. Headlining the evening's proceedings is the climactic contest to crown a new Bantamweight world champion, where Jose "Shorty" Torres and Nkosi "The Future" Ndebele lock horns in a compelling clash for the vacant belt.
