BRAVE CF to expand geography of events

BRAVE CF has already made debuts in South and North America, India, Asia and Europe. In 2019, it became the first promotion to hold an MMA event in Africa. The promotion has already signed several Russian mixed martial artists – Kasum Kasumov, Ikram Aliskerov, Velimurad Alkhasov and Eldar Eldarov, who won the BRAVE CF super lightweight title last year. Therefore, the organization is looking forward to developing business in Russia.

To meet this challenge, BRAVE CF sealed the deal with Moscow promotion Krepost. The Bahraini company has not disclosed the tournament’s fight card yet. However, it was reported that the Russian event would feature contestants from different countries. Members of team KHK Dagestan, founded by Shaikh Khaled, will likely take part in the competition.
