BRAVE Combat Federation is gearing up for a monumental event as BRAVE CF 82 touches down in St. Pierre, Mauritius, on May 11.

The historic occasion is complemented by a thrilling fight card featuring a lineup of African stars facing off against international MMA talents, headlined by one of the most anticipated title fights of 2024.

In the main event, fans can expect an epic trilogy showdown as BRAVE CF Bantamweight champion Nkosi Ndebele squares off against former champion Jose ‘Shorty’ Torres. This trilogy bout marks a significant milestone for BRAVE CF, being the first-ever trilogy in the organization's history and the first trilogy in MMA history to have each fight held on a different continent.

The co-main event features Zimbabwe's Nicholas Hwende aiming to stake his claim for a Bantamweight title shot against the undefeated Khurshed Nazarov, who boasts an impressive 9-0-1 record. Nazarov has the opportunity to make a substantial impact in the Bantamweight division with a standout performance at BRAVE CF 82.

African superstar Eliezer Kubanza, undefeated in his professional MMA career with all wins via stoppages, looks to kick off 2024 on a high note against seasoned veteran Karim Rabei in a Super Welterweight showdown. Rabei, with a decade-long career fighting around the world, makes his BRAVE CF debut at this event.

Another thrilling matchup on the card features two undefeated phenoms, Ramazan Gitinov and Prince Lolia, in a highly anticipated showdown.
