During the unveiling of its highly anticipated calendar for 2024, BRAVE Combat Federation proudly announced its return to Africa, reaffirming its commitment to showcasing world-class MMA events on the continent. Set to take place on May 11, BRAVE CF's debut in Mauritius marks a significant milestone, solidifying its position as the premier international promotion with a presence in Africa.

BRAVE CF President Mohammed Shahid's deep-rooted connection to MMA in Africa has been evident throughout his tenure. From nurturing talents like Francis Ngannou during KHK MMA events to advocating for global expansion, Shahid's vision has propelled BRAVE CF's journey in Africa. This vision materialized in August 2018 with BRAVE CF 14 in Tangier, Morocco, headlined by Ottman Azaitar.

Subsequently, BRAVE CF made history with its first event in South Africa, BRAVE CF 19, showcasing emerging talents like Nkosi Ndebele. Ndebele's remarkable professional debut against Ahmed Farress marked a pivotal moment in BRAVE CF's grassroots development efforts, culminating in his rise as the promotion's first homegrown world champion.

BRAVE CF's commitment to Africa reached new heights at BRAVE CF 31, where Durban, South Africa, witnessed the continent's inaugural mixed martial arts world title fight. Daniel Gaucho's triumph over Chad Hanekom epitomized BRAVE CF's mission to elevate MMA in Africa.

Continuing its legacy of fostering talent, BRAVE CF has nurtured rising stars like Eliezer Kubanza and Nicholas Hwende, exemplifying the promotion's dedication to showcasing Africa's finest. Notable signings of Ibrahim Mane, Sodiq Yusuff, and Mahmoud Sebie underscore BRAVE CF's role in amplifying African representation in MMA.

With fighters from 12 African nations gracing the BRAVE CF stage, the promotion has provided a platform for African athletes to shine globally. As BRAVE CF embarks on its return to Africa, athletes from the continent prepare to welcome international superstars, signaling a triumphant homecoming for MMA in the continent of warriors.
