Fighting out of the Netherlands, Djamil “Dynamite” Chan, 29, is thankful for the opportunity to represent his country across the world due to Brave Combat Federation’s international reach. On August 30, 2019, he will face Leonardo “Macarrão” Mafra, 30, of Brazil in the super lightweight division at “Brave 25” at the Minas Tenis Clube Arena in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
Chan has already fought in Morocco and Bahrain and will now have the chance to showcase his talents in the spiritual home of mixed martial arts. The Dutch fighter is over the moon at the prospect of fighting abroad once again.
“Brave CF has sent me all around the world and I’m very thankful for that,” Chan stated. “They have given me the chance to represent not just myself or my family but my country. I went to Morocco and Bahrain to represent Holland and now I’ll be going to Brazil to do the same so I’m very proud to be able to represent my country at the highest level.”
Owning the fastest knockout in Brave CF, Chan made headlines when he flattened Alejandro “Pato” Martínez, 28, of Mexico at “Brave 14” in Tangier, Morocco in only 29 seconds to set the record, Now, the Dutch fighter is looking for another knockout victory against Mafra.
Chan hopes to add Mafra to his list of KOs and has a strong prediction for their bout. The former shared, “I like Leonardo’s style because he’s very aggressive.”
“The fans want to see this kind of fight,” Chan continued. “It will be very exciting. He has his strengths but I also know his flaws so when he makes a mistake, it will be over fast.”
“I predict a first-round KO but I also see the fight going to the second or third rounds,” the Dutch fighter added. “Either way, he’s going to sleep.”
“Brave 25” marks Brave CF’s fourth event in Brazil. It will be headlined by Brazilian fighters Cleiton “Predator” Silva, 33, and reigning Brave CF Lightweight World Champion Luan “Miau” Santiago, 24.
