Brave News #12

Online show brings updates on Tahar Hadbi and Lucas Mineiro, reports on Al-Selwady's help to Hurricane Harvey survivors and Brave's involvement in the 'Fight of the Century'

Brave News, the weekly online show that keeps fans from around the world updated on the fastest-growing mixed martial arts promotion in the world, comes back with great news all around. First of all, Welterweight Tahar Hadbi promises to unveil further details of his next fight as soon as possible. “Fast Hands” promised to put on a show for his second Brave appearance, which will most likely take place at the organization’s return to Bahrain in November.

Another Brave star on the cusp of announcing his next opponent is Brazilian Lucas “Mineiro” Martins. After skipping Brave’s return to Brazil to heal an injured hand, the Featherweight says he wants to fight again for Brave Combat Federation sooner rather than later and reaffirmed his desire to challenge champion Elias Boudegzdame. The pair already had a heated face-off in Abu Dhabi, right after “Smile” won the title, and if the bout becomes official, it’s guaranteed fireworks for Brave fans.

Meanwhile, Brave News catches up with Kareem-Abdul Al-Selwady, who has taken time off his preparations for his next bout to help out victims of Hurricane Harvey, a tropical storm that has hit Houston hard. After completing his last fight camp in Dallas, Al-Selwady and his teammates at Fortis MMA have been organizing food drives and giving local fighters a free space to train for their upcoming fights.

Last Saturday saw Floyd Mayweather take out Conor McGregor in the 1oth round of their super fight. And Brave stars were in attendance. Frans Mlambo was news all over the world, including Brazil’s Combate and England’s Daily Mirror after revealing details of the infamous sparring session between teammate McGregor and former boxing world champion Paulie Malinaggi. Also in Las Vegas to witness the “Fight of the Century” were Gurdarshan Mangat and Hamza Kooheji.

Last but not least, Brave News announces special programming is coming through for fight fans during the month of September, which marks Brave Combat Federation’s first birthday.
