Ambassador invites His Highness Sheikh Khalid to host Brave CF event in the Philippines

His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa crowned Stephen Loman as the first BRAVE CF Bantamweight World Champion at BRAVE CF 9, Kingdom of Bahrain
Brave Combat Federation is set to take the Philippines by storm with a historic Brave CF 22 fight card, which includes the third defense of local hero Stephen Loman’s Bantamweight title. But before Brave CF 22 was made possible, the champion’s performance in his last fight was one of the reasons the promotion is heading to his home country.
The Filipino Ambassador for Bahrain, Mr. Alfonso Ver, was on sight to watch the activities from Brave CF 18, when Loman defended his belt against Brazil’s Felipe Efrain and was left greatly impressed with the structure of the show, his countryman’s performance and connection with Brave fans.
During the event, with the presence of His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Brave’s visionary leader and patron, Mr. Ver put the wheels in motion for the promotion’s first visit to the Philippines by publicly asking for a Brave show in his homeland. Knowing that Brave has a huge following in the country was a welcomed plus for the diplomat.
Ahead of Brave 22, the parties involved will also look to strengthen the relationship between Philippines and Bahrain, as well as making sure the sport of MMA continues its rapid development in the Philippines as Brave CF looks to give a global platform to local fighters for the first time on March 15th 2019.

Brave Combat Federation takes global MMA vision to the Philippines

For the last two years, Brave Combat Federation has looked to change the landscape of mixed martial arts, with a truly global vision of including all corners of the planet under the same roof. Currently the biggest combat sports property in the Middle East, Brave lands for the first time in the Philippines, on March 15th, as Brave 22 promises fireworks for sports fans in the country and those around the world.

Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the organization has taken big steps in a new sport. Compared to the likes of football and basketball, MMA has only been around since the ’90s, and it has already evolved and changed in many ways since its inception, adapting its rules to gain a wider audience – which is one of the changes that has made MMA the fastest-growing sport in the world.
Aside from adapting its rules, MMA has also focused on marketable athletes, and most promotions choose to invest in fighters with certain types of personalities. Brave Combat Federation, on the other hand, takes pride in giving a truly global platform to athletes because of their in-cage abilities and fighting qualities, regardless of how they come across to the media.
This has allowed Brave to set an example in its two-year run as the fastest-growing promotion in the fastest-growing sport. No other organization has traveled so extensively as Brave has in their first two years of operations. Since September of 2016, the company has visited 14 countries: Bahrain, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates, India, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Jordan, Indonesia, Northern Ireland, Morocco, Colombia, Pakistan, South Africa, and Saudi Arabia.
Aside from this, Brave has given opportunities to fighters from more than 40 countries to showcase their abilities to more than 80 countries around the world with a reach close to 800 million homes. The promotion insists on blending in local talent with international fighters whenever it lands on a new country, making sure regional fighters have a chance to shine in the biggest of stages and leaving a lasting legacy to the sport in the new areas reached.
Set for a groundbreaking event in the iconic Mall of Asia Arena, in Manila, Philippines, Brave Combat Federation will once again use its formula of bringing the biggest international stars on its roster to compete with Philippines’ finest. In the main event of Brave 22, the organization’s longest-reigning champion, Stephen Loman, will go for an unprecedented third defense of his belt against former Featherweight titleholder Elias Boudegzdame, from Algeria, by way of Montpellier, France.

Both men have the opportunity to make history in front of Brave’s loyal Filipino fanbase, as Boudegzdame could become the first fighter to hold two belts in two different weight classes and Loman could extend his legacy with a third title defense. A win over “Smile” could very well cement the Bantamweight champion as a Filipino sports legend, after conquering the rest of the world, with appearances in Bahrain and Northern Ireland as well as wins over tough Brazilian and Irish fighters.
