BRAVE Combat Federation, renowned as the most global organization in the world of mixed martial arts, is set to embark on a groundbreaking journey in India in 2024. Recognized as the only international promotion to host events in the country, with three successful shows previously held in Mumbai and Hyderabad, BRAVE CF is poised to take its relationship with India to new heights.

The organization's commitment to fostering the growth of MMA in India is evident through its track record of providing numerous athletes from the nation with global opportunities to shine on the international stage. Icons like Mohammad Farhad, who has trained with legends like Khabib Nurmagomedov and Islam Makhachev, have risen to prominence and achieved recognition as ranked Bantamweights within BRAVE CF.

Across its three shows in India, BRAVE CF not only offered Indian fighters a global platform but also facilitated matchups against athletes from diverse backgrounds worldwide. Fighters from India have squared off against opponents from countries including Egypt, the Philippines, Thailand, Canada, Indonesia, Afghanistan, England, Jordan, and Italy, showcasing the sport's global appeal.

Moreover, Indian fans have been treated to a spectacle of world-class MMA action, witnessing the likes of Khamzat Chimaev, Jeremy Pacatiw, Rolando Dy, Erick 'Indio Brabo', Paulo Bananada, Maria Ribeiro, Alex 'Leko', Phil Hawes, Ali Al-Qaisi, and Jalal Al-Daaja in action at BRAVE CF events in India.

BRAVE CF's commitment to elevating MMA in India reached a historic milestone with the organization orchestrating the first-ever MMA world title fight on Indian soil. At BRAVE CF 30, then-Bantamweight champion Stephen Loman retained his title by defeating top contender Louie Sanoudakis in a thrilling main event.

Looking ahead, BRAVE Combat Federation is poised to revolutionize the sports landscape in India with the launch of a comprehensive sports development program. This initiative aims to propel MMA to new heights across all sectors, ushering in a new era for martial arts in the country and unlocking its true potential.

The development program will pave the way for aspiring young fighters to achieve superstardom and gain global recognition while also enhancing MMA at all levels. It promises to create new job opportunities and provide a viable career path for individuals involved in the industry, ranging from media professionals to organizers, managers, and beyond.
