BRAVE Combat Federation is set to make history once again as it announces its debut event in Mauritius, featuring a headlining bout that promises to electrify the MMA world. On May 11th, the eyes of the combat sports community will be fixed on the main event of BRAVE CF 82, where Bantamweight World champion Nkosi 'The Future' Ndebele will defend his title against his long-standing rival, Jose ‘Shorty’ Torres.

What makes this fight particularly remarkable is not just the stakes for the organization, but also its significance for MMA on a global scale. This showdown marks the first-ever trilogy in BRAVE Combat Federation's history and, notably, the first trilogy in MMA history where each fight occurs on a different continent.

Their rivalry ignited at BRAVE CF 73 in Bogota, Colombia, where Torres clinched victory via a split decision, claiming the vacant Bantamweight world title. Seeking redemption, Ndebele secured a rematch at BRAVE CF 80 in Bahrain. In a display of sheer dominance, he forced Torres to concede in the third round, capturing the Bantamweight World Title and solidifying his status as BRAVE CF's inaugural homegrown champion.

The significance of this trilogy extends beyond the confines of the octagon. The first clash unfolded in South America, the second in Asia, and now, the epic conclusion is set to take place in Africa, making it the most globally dispersed trilogy in MMA history.
