BRAVE Combat Federation and MX Player have announced a groundbreaking, long-term agreement. Under this landmark deal, content from the martial arts organization will be distributed across India, tapping into the rising interest in MMA within the country.

Founded by His Highness Shaikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa, BRAVE Combat Federation has established itself as the most global MMA organization, having hosted events in 28 countries over six years. Notably, BRAVE CF has already organized events in India, specifically in Mumbai and Hyderabad. Additionally, the organization boasts some of India's top MMA fighters, including Mohammed Farhad, the number one Indian Bantamweight.

MX Player, being one of the largest OTT platforms in Asia and the world's fastest-growing mixed martial arts organization partner, will distribute content featuring hundreds of fighters, including Mohammed Farhad, in India. The partnership aims to educate Indian fans about the sport and further expand the brand and MMA in the country.

‘’As the most global and fastest-growing mixed martial arts organization in the world, BRAVE Combat Federation has the vision to bring the world of MMA to India and take India to the world of MMA as well.
