The much-anticipated BRAVE CF trilogy between Bantamweight world champion Nkosi Ndebele and arch-rival Jose 'Shorty' Torres may be put on hold, as Ndebele expresses interest in facing Velimurad Alkhasov next.

News of Sambo world champion Alkhasov's permanent move to the 135-pound division sparked excitement for Ndebele, who sees an opportunity to test himself against one of the best lighter weight fighters globally.

Taking to his social media profiles, Nkosi revealed his preference for a bout against Alkhasov over an immediate third clash with 'Shorty.' The two fighters met twice in the previous year, with Torres claiming victory in their first encounter via split decision and Ndebele securing a decisive win at BRAVE CF 80 to become the new Bantamweight champion.

While acknowledging that a third fight with Torres is inevitable, Nkosi expressed his desire to "grow and fight other guys" before engaging in the historic first trilogy in BRAVE CF history. The champion is eager to expand his challenges and make a mark beyond the confines of the immediate rivalry.
