BRAVE Combat Federation veteran Ylies Djiroun is poised to make his highly anticipated return to the BRAVE CF cage on May 11 at BRAVE CF 82, where he will face off against promotional newcomer Ananias Mulumba from DR Congo. This bout marks a significant transition for Djiroun, who typically competes in the Lightweight division but is now venturing into the Featherweight division, signaling a fresh start and an opportunity for redemption.

Djiroun, who made his BRAVE CF debut back in 2021 at BRAVE CF 48, quickly emerged as a prominent figure in French MMA within the organization. His pivotal moment came when BRAVE CF made its debut in France with BRAVE CF 74 at the H Arena in Nantes in 2023, where Djiroun headlined the event against Brazil's Lucas Martins.

Despite the hometown advantage, Djiroun faced a setback with a first-round knockout loss to Martins, presenting a significant challenge in his career trajectory.

Following this setback, Djiroun regrouped on the regional circuit, securing two consecutive victories. Now, with his sights set on rejoining the BRAVE CF ranks, Djiroun faces high stakes in his upcoming bout.

Later this year, BRAVE Combat Federation is scheduled to return to France as part of its 2024 European Tour. For Djiroun, who aims to overcome the memory of his challenging performance at BRAVE CF 74, a strong showing in his upcoming fight is crucial to secure a spot on the card for the upcoming event in France and to redeem himself in front of his home crowd.
