Brave Combat Federation and the Kingdom of Bahrain have been praised for the roles they have played in the development of mixed martial arts on a grass-roots level. International Mixed Martial Arts Federation-World Mixed Martial Arts Association (IMMAF-WMMAA) president Kerrith Brown recognizes the contribution of the promotion and the country to the growth of the sport.
Recently, Brown was in Bahrain for the announcement of the third edition of the Brave International Combat Week 2019. The event will take place in the second week of November 2019 alongside the IMMAF-WMMAA World Championships 2019, which makes it the biggest Brave CF event in the year as its crowning moment.
Brown spoke of his excitement at once again joining forces with Brave CF, Bahrain and the Bahraini MMA Federation. He hailed their involvement in the vision of His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa as well as their help in the growth of MMA in the most basic level.
“His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa has worked very hard to help us deliver an amazing event by giving the athletes all the conditions possible so they can be able to put on world-class performances when it matters,” Brown said. “Our relationships with BRAVE and His Highness are the best possible. We have the same visions and goals for the sport. They have stepped up to the plate in terms of understanding our vision and putting the sport at the highest level and I’m thankful to be partners with them.”
With 550 athletes from more than 60 countries expected to compete in the IMMAF-WMMAA World Championships, the Brave International Combat Week 2019 is the largest combat sports festival in Asia. It will take place in Isa Town, Bahrain on November 9-16, 2019.
