Mohammad “The Latest” Fakhreddine, 35, of Lebanon is ready to be back in the title picture. Fresh off a heroic performance at the KHK World Championship, the Lebanese mixed martial artist wants to challenge whoever turns out to be the inaugural middleweight champion of BRAVE Combat Federation.
On December 7, 2019, BRAVE CF will hold “BRAVE CF 31” at the Sibaya Casino in Durban, South Africa. In the main event, Chad “Superman” Hanekom, 27, of Sunninghill, South Africa and Daniel “Gaúcho” Pereira, 28, of Curitiba, Parana, Brazil will compete for the inaugural BRAVE CF Middleweight World Championship title.
Fakhreddine is already eager to challenge the eventual BRAVE CF Middleweight World Champion. He even took to social media to ask BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid to make it happen.
Competing professionally since 2012, Fakhreddine joined BRAVE CF in 2017. He currently has 4 wins, 3 losses, 0 draw and 1 No Contest in the Bahrain-based MMA promotion.
On November 15, 2019, Fakhreddine competed in the inaugural KHK World Championship at “BRAVE CF 29” at the Khalifa Sports City Arena in Isa Town, Bahrain. After defeating Kleber “Orgulho” Raimundo Silva, 31, of Brazil in the semi-finals, the Lebanese MMA fighter lost to Azamat “The Professional” Murzakanov, 30, Russia, in the championship round.
After “BRAVE CF 29,” Fakhreddine now holds a professional MMA record of 13 wins, 4 losses, 0 draw and 1 No Contest. He is not the only waiting to challenge the inaugural BRAVE CF Middleweight World Champion.
Phil “Zilla” Hawes, 30, of Little Ferry, New Jersey, United States also wants to fight whoever wins between Hanekom and Pereira at “BRAVE CF 31.” On November 23, 2019, the American fighter made his successful BRAVE CF debut at “BRAVE CF 30” at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad, Telangana, India.
At “BRAVE CF 30,” Hawes submitted Dominic “Painless” Schober, 28, of Vienna, Upper Austria, Austria. They competed in the middleweight division.
“Chad, Daniel, it doesn’t matter,” Hawes said. “I’m coming for that belt and no one can stop me.”
