BRAVE Combat Federation’s commitment to developing mixed martial arts around the world continues to come to fruition as it lands in Bucharest, Romania for “BRAVE 28” on November 4, 2019. For BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid, the occasion calls for a celebration as the Bahrain-based MMA promotion continues to travel in Europe with its third event in the continent in three different countries.

“BRAVE 28” will be held with “RXF 36” of Romania-based MMA promotion Real Xtreme Fighting simultaneously. There are nine bouts on the fight card.

Before Romania, Northern Ireland and England previously hosted BRAVE CF events. But Shahid is especially excited to travel for the first time to Eastern Europe and is confident that “BRAVE 28” will be the start of something special.

“We talk the talk and walk the walk,” Shahid stated. “When we say we want to globalize the sport of MMA, we mean it.”

“Romania is another place where the big organizations have been missing but it’s full of talent and has immense room for growth,” Shahid continued. “I can’t wait for BRAVE CF to land in Bucharest for an unforgettable event alongside our partners at RXF and the start of something special for MMA, BRAVE CF and Romania.”


The main event of “BRAVE 28” is a lightweight match with possible title implications as top strikers John “Trouble” Brewin, 24, of Auckland, New Zealand and Maciej “MagicMan” Gierzewski, 32, of Lebork, Poland. The winner will be near title contention.

There are three other Brave CF fights at “BRAVE 28.” Benoit St. Denis makes his promotional debut against BRAVE CF veteran Pawel Kielek at a 170lbs catchweight bout while Dansheel Moodley welcomes Noureddine Hazrat and Nikolay Grozdev finally makes his promotional debut against Issei Moriyama.
