Fresh from staging Brave 21 in Saudi Arabia last December 28, the promotion finally gets the opportunity to showcase its talents to the Filipino audience. For months, they have expressed interest to break ground in the country. No less than Brave CF president Mohammed Shahid said in a previous presser their plans of making that happen.

“Philippines had been a focus for Brave Combat Federation from the very beginning. From time and time warriors from Philippines had proved that they not only have the skill to compete in the International level. But also have the heart that matters when it comes to combat sports,” He said.

Currently, Brave boasts Stephen Loman as its first and only bantamweight titleholder. He is expected to make his third defense on the card.
