Prepare for an explosive debut as Rasul Magomedov, a highly accomplished wrestler transitioning into mixed martial arts, is set to kick off his professional career with a statement-making victory.

Magomedov, undefeated in his amateur journey with a flawless record of 13 wins and no losses, holds the remarkable distinction of being a two-time IMMAF world champion. In 2021 alone, he conquered all IMMAF competitions, securing triumphs in the World Cup, World Championship, and European Championships.

BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid expressed his anticipation in welcoming Rasul to the professional ranks while highlighting the diverse lineup of standout athletes from various combat sports on the fight card.

‘’This fight card has so many great stories. We’re talking about legends of other sports competing, like five-time wushu sanda world champion Mohsen Mohammedseifi. But we have to talk about Rasul Magomedov. Yes, he’s making his professional debut. But he has monumental competition experience. He is a two-time IMMAF amateur world champion, he's the number one Heavyweight in IMMAF. And to know that, before that, he achieved even greater heights, by beating Kyle Snyder, you can’t help but be excited at this kid’’, said Mohammed Shahid, who also broke down why Rasul is a scary proposition for any Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight on the planet right now.

‘’He doesn’t even move like a Heavyweight or a Light Heavyweight. The bigger guys have certain limitations to how they can move, to how they fight – he doesn’t have those. His wrestling, the fact that he beat Kyle Snyder, tells you everything you need to know’’.
