KHK World Championship in Bahrain to make history for mixed martial arts

BRAVE Combat Federation, the biggest sports property in the Middle East, will make history during the BRAVE International Combat Week, set to take place in Bahrain, between November 10th and November 16th. The crowning moment of the week will be the KHK World Championship, a one-night, four-men, open weight tournament, which will happen during BRAVE CF 29, on November 15th.

The four men chosen to take part in the historical tournament will compete for a US$100,000 check as well as the provisional holder of the KHK belt, a one-of-a-kind prize, adorned with 6.2 kg of gold, the heaviest prize in all of sports.

The KHK belt follows the footsteps of the first-ever FIFA World Cup trophy as the winner will only be in definitive possession of it if they win the tournament three times. In the football World Cup, it was the Brazilian national team that won the cup three times and got the possession of the Jules Rimet trophy.

For the KHK World Championship, four athletes will have the chance to start their road to definite possession: Mohammad Fakhreddine, of Lebanon, Moise Rimbon, from France, Brazil’s Guto Inocente, and Azamat Murzakanov, representing Russia.

The four fighters have been chosen from hundreds of competitors signed up to take part in what promises to be a historic night for the sport of mixed martial arts. With all eyes on Bahrain, who will come out victorious and one step near the definite possession of the biggest prize in sports?
