It has been confirmed that Hamza Kooheji, the successful KHK MMA fight team member and the first professional (MMA) mixed martial arts fighter to represent the Kingdom of Bahrain on an international MMA platform will take part of Brave Combat Federation premier event BRAVE “THE BEGINNING“.
Brave “The beginning“ is scheduled to take place at the Khalifa Sports City in Isa Town, Bahrain on September 23 , 2016. The event will be headlined by a welterweight bout between Lebanon’s Mohamed Fakhreddine Vs Brazil’s Thiago “Monstro“ Vieira.
Kooheji started his Mixed Martial Art career back in 2011 at the age of 19 under the tutelage of Coach Mohamed Shahid, the current CEO of KHK MMA. At that time, the sport was relatively new in the Kingdom of Bahrain with only a handful of practitioners willing to engage in competition. After less than one year of mixed martial arts training, Kooheji made his professional debut in India’s Super Fight League where he made national history earning his first ever victory at an international MMA competition. He then continued to excel in his young Mixed Martial Arts career, defeating Saudi Arabia’s AbdulMalek Mardi in his second professional fight.
Hamza was one of the first professional fighters to join team KHK MMA, which was established in 2015 thanks to the generous support of H.H Shaikh Khalid Bin Hamad Khalifa.
With H.H Shaikh Khalid Bin Hamad Al Khalifa closely supporting his career, Kooheji went on to face Jordanian Ghaleb Al Harahsheh, the winner of Desert Force Al Akademiya season 2 featherweight title and snatched a second TKO (Technical Knockout) win back in (May,2015).
This September, Hamza will look to bounce back and this time in front of his home crown at the Kingdom Of Bahrain as he takes part in the historical Brave Combat Federation premier event.
