BRAVE Combat Federation's Super Welterweight champion, Marcin Bandel, has left an indelible mark on the global MMA stage with his meteoric journey to the championship title. In just three fights, "Bomba" Bandel secured BRAVE CF gold, showcasing performances of unparalleled excellence.

Bandel's debut at BRAVE CF 54 featured a resounding statement as he lived up to his nickname by explosively submitting Switzerland's Magomed Ayskhanov with a rear-naked choke within two minutes of the first round.

Undeterred by the challenge, Bandel faced Brazilian veteran Luis Felipe Dias at BRAVE CF 58, proving his dominance within the 175-pound division. The former GMC Middleweight Champion secured a unanimous decision victory over three rounds, solidifying his position as a rising star and potential future champion.

With an impressive track record of 21 wins, a jiu-jitsu black belt under ADCC Open-Weight champion Robert Drysdale, and 18 submissions, Bandel emerged as a formidable threat in the division. The stage was set for a clash with another rising star, the "Austrian Wonderboy" Ismail Naurdiev, for the vacant BRAVE CF Super Welterweight title.

In a spectacular main event at BRAVE CF 63 in Bahrain's Kombat Kingdom, Bandel outshone Naurdiev, knocking him down before securing a dominant victory with a frightening armbar early in the first round. Poland celebrated the coronation of its new hero, and Bandel received the prestigious 2022 Herakles Submission of the Year Award in his home country.

The recognition continued with a BRAVE CF Awards Submission of the Year nomination, solidifying Bandel's status as a rising star in global MMA. However, the journey faced a hurdle as an anticipated title defence against the dangerous unbeaten Russian, Kamal Magomedov, at BRAVE CF 71 fell through due to unforeseen circumstances.

Now, a new encounter between Bandel and Magomedov is in the works, promising an epic showdown that could determine the true king of the division. BRAVE Nations fans eagerly await this clash of elite athletes, anticipating a thrilling resolution before the year's end.
