Zvonimir “The Croatian Sensation” Kralj, 29, of Gothenburg, Sweden is ready to earn his third victory in the Bahrain-based mixed martial arts promotion BRAVE Combat Federation. Training out of GBG MMA in Gothenburg, he currently holds a professional MMA record of 7 wins and 4 losses.
On December 18, 2021, Kralj will fight Jacob Nedoh of Slovenia at “BRAVE CF 56” at the BelExpo Centar in Belgrade, Serbia. They will battle it out in the light heavyweight division.
Kralj has been competing professionally since 2014. When he made his BRAVE CF debut at “BRAVE CF 39” in Stockholm, Sweden on August 15, 2020, he knocked out Samir Sadoun of Algeria.
On August 24, 2020, Kralj earned his second BRAVE CF win by knocking out Fatih Aktas, 32, of Turkey at “BRAVE CF 40” in Stockholm. On November 19, 2020, the Croatian-Swedish MMA fighter was knocked out by Mohamed “L’Ambiance” Said Maalem, 39, of Switzerland at “BRAVE CF 45” in East Riffa, Bahrain.
“If you beat Jakob Nedoh and BRAVE CF allows you to choose, would you like to have a rematch with Mohamed Said Maalem in your next fight or fight someone else?” I asked Kralj before the “BRAVE CF 56” fight night. He told me, “After Saturday, BRAVE CF has to give me the title fight.”
“The BRAVE CF belt is all I looking for,” Kralj continued. “I don’t understand why Mohamed Said should have the chance to fight for the title again but like said, I will get that title fight and I will take that belt home to Sweden no matter who I have to fight.”
