Representing Team Lakay of Baguio City, Philippines, Stephen “The Sniper” Loman, 23, successfully defended his Brave CF Bantamweight Champion belt on June 9, 2018 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. His next title defense may take place in this home country.

Recently, Brave Combat Federation president Mohammed Shahid held a meeting with His Excellency Alfonso A. Ver, Ambassador of Philippines to the Kingdom of Bahrain. An official announcement is yet to be made but the meeting could mean Loman’s second title defense may be the main event of the first ever Brave CF event in the Philippines.

“The Kingdom of Bahrain and the Philippines share a strong bond when it comes to nurturing relations, greater cooperation in trade investments, tourism, as well as culture and education,” Shahid stated. “We have found yet another common ground when it comes to the passion that we share for combat sports.”

The Kingdom of Bahrain hosts a sizable expatriate community from the Philippines. The two countries share strong relations and mutually beneficial ties including initiatives in growing economic relations, fostering greater exchange and cooperation in trade investments, tourism, culture and education.

“Kingdom of Bahrain and the Philippines share a strong bond when it comes to nurturing relations, greater cooperation in trade investments, tourism, as well as culture and education,” Shahid said. “We have found yet another common ground when it comes to the passion that we share for combat sports.”

Brave CF is looking forward to nurturing the sport of mixed martial arts in countries like the Philippines, according to Shahid. He added that the Bahrain-based MMA promotion “will be working towards the goal of creating a global eco-system for the sport and offer more opportunities for fighters, economy and growing relations.”

Hosting Brave CF in the Philippines will ensure the growing interests in sports and media by the Kingdom of Bahrain under His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa to have a strong base in the Southeast Asia. The first Brave CF event in the region took place in Jakarta, Indonesia on May 11, 2018 at “Brave 12: KHK Legacy.”
