Iraqi-American mixed martial artist Hayder “Hulk” Hassan, 37, will make his BRAVE Combat Federation debut at “BRAVE CF 32.” He will headline the event with Carl “The Bomber” Booth, 29, of Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England.
Venturing into Central Asia, Brave CF will hold “BRAVE CF 32” at Kaba Uulu Kozhomkul in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan on December 14, 2019 in partnership with WEF Global. In the main event, Hassan and Booth will battle it out in a catchweight bout.
Hassan is one of the latest signings for BRAVE CF and will get a tough assignment for his debut as he takes on one of the most feared strikers in Booth. A former welterweight contender, the latter returns from a year-long layoff after a brutal knockout win over Dino “The Lion” Bagattin, 38, of Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa at “BRAVE CF 19” at the Sun City Resort in North West, South Africa on December 8, 2018.
Born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States on October 20, 1982, Hassan is training out of American Top Team in Coconut Creek, Florida. His Iraqi parents, who are originally from Baghdad, Iraq, relocated to the U.S. in 1977.
Currently, Hassan holds a professional MMA record of 9 wins and 4 losses and is riding a three-bout streak.
Booth was the Ultimate Gladiators K1 Grand Prix Winner in 2015 and the K.O.T.R. WW European Champion in 2016. He is training out of Nottingham MMA Gym under the tutelage of Master Owen Comrie and Paul Lukowski.
“BRAVE CF 32” marks the first time Brave CF is holding an event in Kyrgyzstan. It will take place simultaneously with “WEF 90-Global 16.”
BRAVE CF’S debut in Kyrgyzstan will also feature the return of super lightweight sensation Leonardo “Macarrão” Mafra, 30, of Balneario Camboriu, Santa Catarina, Brazil. He will face promotional debutante Abdysalam “Omok” Kubanychiev, 25, of Kyrgyzstan.
