The importance of women in sports, including most notably mixed martial arts, is recognised on International Women's Day, a day when people throughout the world celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political accomplishments of women. BRAVE Combat Federation joins in this celebration.
As the brand expanded to different parts of the world since its founding in 2016, BRAVE CF not only rose to become the most global mixed martial arts promotion, but it also gave rise to hundreds of women.
29 female fighters from 16 different nations have been raised by BRAVE CF, which has also promoted some of the world's most well-known fighters, including Mariya Agapova of Kazakhstan, Luana Pinheiro of Brazil, Ewelina Wozniak of Poland, and Josefine Knutsson of Sweden.
In November 2019 at BRAVE CF 29, the organisation hosted the first-ever professional female mixed martial arts match in the Kingdom of Bahrain as Pinheiro faced England's Helen Harper in a strawweight contest on the main card of the ground-breaking event. This was one of the most memorable moments in BRAVE CF history.
More trained female referees from Mexico and Colombia have started officiating BRAVE Fighting Federation fights after the organisation declared it obligatory to incorporate more female officials in the promotion in 2017.
Through the production, media and communications, logistics, finance, and promotions teams, BRAVE CF has given women opportunities and jobs outside the cage.
As she collaborates with BRAVE CF President Mohammed Shahid and other executives to implement His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa's vision for the globalisation of mixed martial arts, strengthening sport governance, and transforming MMA from an events business to a sports business, BRAVE CF and KHK Sports COO Valeria Lang have established a solid reputation. In any international MMA organisation, Lang is the highest-ranking female executive.
