BRAVE Combat Federation's Bantamweight world champion, Nkosi Ndebele, is gearing up for an action-packed year ahead, with plans to defend his title across three continents in 2024. Excited about the organization's ambitious schedule, Ndebele aims to solidify his reign with high-stakes bouts in diverse locations, beginning with his home continent of Africa.

As the most globally oriented MMA organization, BRAVE CF has unveiled a calendar comprising nine events spanning three continents and eight countries for 2024. Among these, Ndebele is particularly drawn to BRAVE CF’s inaugural event in Mauritius on May 11.

The upcoming show not only marks BRAVE CF's return to Africa but also serves as an opportunity for Ndebele's fellow African fighters like Eliezer Kubanza and Nicholas Hwende to showcase their skills on the international stage.

Anticipating his title defense in Mauritius, Ndebele has commenced his training camp early at Soma Fight Club in Indonesia, underscoring his commitment to maintaining his championship status.

Expressing his ambitious goals, Ndebele envisions defending his title in three continents, commencing in Mauritius, followed by potential bouts in Slovenia and concluding the year in Bahrain, which he regards as his second home.

Reflecting on BRAVE CF's significance in Africa, Ndebele acknowledges the organization's unparalleled contribution to the region's MMA development, emphasizing the wealth of opportunities it offers to African fighters.

Thrilled by the prospect of headlining in Africa, Ndebele aspires to be BRAVE CF's leading figure on the continent, affirming his readiness to embrace the responsibility.

With potential match-ups against formidable opponents like Velimurad Alkhasov and Nicholas Hwende looming on the horizon, Ndebele's return to the BRAVE CF Arena promises to deliver electrifying clashes, including a much-anticipated trilogy with Torres.
