“Brave 24: London” is getting closer and with just a few days to go until Brave Combat Federation makes its much awaited England debut, the pre-fight video of “Road to Brave” was released. The video explores the brewing rivalry between former Brave CF Lightweight World Champion Lucas “Mineiro” Martins, 30, of Brazil and reigning Brave CF Featherweight World Champion Bubba “Bad Man” Jenkins, 31, of the United States.
In the last few days, Jenkins has been very vocal on how he feels his bout against Martins will go. On “Road to Brave,” the American mixed martial artist shows how his preparation has taken place before directing more trash talk at the challenger.
“I’m different than these other champions,” Jenkins said. “Some of them were given their position. Some have talked their way into their position but somebody trying to bury me didn’t know they were planting a seed and now that I’ve grown into a tree that overlooks its greatness and destiny, the fruit that I bear, it’s different and rare. I’m not like them.”
“Soon, he will know,” Jenkins said of Martins. “I am not like his previous foes.”
Currently, Jenkins holds a professional MMA record of 13 wins and 4 losses. On the other hand, Martins now has 20 wins and 4 losses.
