BRAVE Combat Federation will keep landing in new territories in 2020. The Bahrain-based mixed martial arts promotion will move on from its month of madness in December 2019, with three events in three different regions, to its debut in Slovenia.
A parliamentary republic, Slovenia is a member nation of the European Union, the United Nations and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Among the top MMA fighters from the country are Bor Bratovž, 37, Bojan “Zelva” Kosednar, 36, Lemmy “The Wardog” Krušič, 30, and Primož Vrbinc, 27.
On January 19, 2019, BRAVE CF will hold “BRAVE CF 34” in Ljubljana, Slovenia in an exclusive partnership with the World Freefight Challenge. Founded in 2005, the WFC is one of the top MMA promotions in Europe.
The partnership was closed during the visit of WFC president Zlatko Mahic to the Kingdom of Bahrain during the BRAVE International Combat Week. While in Bahrain, he had a meeting with BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid and the two parties agreed to partner up and help the development of the booming MMA scene in the Balkans.
In the coming weeks, BRAVE CF fans can expect the full “BRAVE CF 34” fight card to be announced. This will make Slovenia the 19th country to host an event of the Bahrain-based MMA promotion, which keeps pushing for worldwide opportunities from fighters from all corners of the globe.
“BRAVE CF 34” is the fourth BRAVE CF event to take place in Europe. The promotion has hosted events in Africa, South America, North America, Middle East and South East Asia.
