Turkish-based fighter, Khamzat ‘Borz’ Maaev, is set to make waves akin to his doppelganger, global superstar Khamzat ‘Borz’ Chimaev, as he calls on BRAVE Combat Federation to grant him fights across three different continents before the year's end.

Since joining the ranks of BRAVE Combat Federation, Maaev has drawn parallels with the sensational rise of Chimaev, and now he's ready to prove his durability by expanding his global footprint. The ambitious fighter aims to follow in the footsteps of his renowned counterpart, who has become a symbol of dominance in the MMA world.

BRAVE Combat Federation, known for its groundbreaking endeavors, recently solidified its standing as the most-traveled MMA organization. Nantes, France, became the 29th nation to host BRAVE CF events, marking a significant world record within its seven years of inception.

Maaev, closely monitoring BRAVE CF's achievements, has expressed his eagerness to embrace the brand's worldwide reach and showcase his prowess on an international stage. "I'm seeing BRAVE CF go all around the world, and I want to visit some places, too," said Maaev, who marked his BRAVE CF debut at BRAVE CF 71 with a stunning first-round knockout against Lebanon's Elie Farah in their Super Lightweight bout.

Boasting an unblemished record of four fights, all concluded with first-round stoppages, Maaev's dominance within the BRAVE CF cage echoes the early success of Chimaev. The latter, known for haunting the BRAVE CF Middleweight and Welterweight stables, went on an impressive four-fight win streak in a remarkably short period.

Beyond sharing similar names, Maaev and Chimaev hail from Chechnya, Russia, sharing striking physical resemblances and a deadly combination of power and wrestling prowess that has captivated fans across social media platforms.

The two stars, currently training together in the United Arab Emirates, seem to have forged a potent partnership. Chimaev's influence is evident as Maaev now seeks quick turnaround fights, inspired by his "big brother."

I smash!" declares Maaev, setting the stage for what could be an exhilarating journey across the globe as he strives to emulate the global success of his mentor and doppelganger, Khamzat ‘Borz’ Chimaev.
