Founded by His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, First Deputy President of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports and the President of Bahrain Athletics Association, Brave CF is the fastest growing mixed martial arts promotion in the world. The sports media, which is based in Bahrain, features athletes from the Philippines extensively and Stephen Loman is the current champion of the Bantamweight division.

The sports promotion had been in the forefront featuring mixed martial artists from Jordan against international athletes. The country will be the first nation to host Brave CF in 2018.

Within a year of commencement, Brave CF had hosted nine events in six nations around the world including Bahrain, the United Arad Emirates, Brazil, India, Mexico and Kazakhstan. The event is broadcast across 84 nations to roughly 833 million fans and had been instrumental in bringing International media attention towards mixed martial arts in the Middle East.

“Brave Combat Federation is committed to develop the sport of mixed martial arts globally,” Brave CF President Mohammed Shahid said. “Athletes from Jordan had proven from time and time again why they are one among the best in the sport. The event in Jordan is the culmination of their determination, dedication and achievements.
