Brave president Mohammed Shahid revealed his plans to take Brave Combat Federation to Brazil on February 25th following the rip-roaring show Brave 2 show in Bahrain.
Brave 2 saw the emergence of new stars in MMA as Carl “The Bomber” Booth blasted past Gadzhimusa Gaziev, Jarrah Al Silawi locked in his deadly Kimura, and Elias Boudegzdame produced a stunning upset submitting Walel “The Gazelle” Watson.
These three men were already on the rise, and raised their stock considerably as they put on exciting finishes in front of the Brave team, spearheaded by H.H. Shaikh Khalid Bin Hamad Al Khalifa and Mohammed Shahid.
Equally as impressive was “Gary” Gurdarshan Mangat, who became India’s new hero following his impressive dismantling of Troy Bantag. This is a fighter who has the skills and the drive to go all the way in the sport and he could be a key player in the Shahid’s plans in India.
If that wasn’t exciting enough for the Brave team, their own hero Hamza Kooheji, the pride of Bahrain, secured a hard-fought decision win over a very game opponent, proving his worth and showing his grit.
Yet, perhaps the most significant winner of all was Brazilian Alex Da Silva Coelho, who maintained his incredible unbeaten run, surviving some tough moments before wearing down Daniel Swain and finishing him in the second. That made it eighteen straight victories by stoppage and he looks like a special fighter, with all the tools to be a global star in the sport.
Da Silva Coelho would have been licking his lips following this historic event as Brave officials announced that Brave 3 is going to take place in Brazil early next year. After two successful shows, Brave Combat Federation will head to Curitiba. Now that’s what you can call global!
