Probably, the most striking feature of the MMA Super Cup trophy is the beautiful, ornate gold dome at the very top, including the man holding the Earth. This symbol is hugely important for many reasons.

This man lived to be the strongest creature on Earth both physically and mentally. Likewise, those who compete in the MMA Super Cup compete to be the strongest and the best.


The man is one who went to war yet also lived the majority as a hermit in caves, the complexity and contrast of being the strongest is ever present in those who face the challenge of the MMA Super Cup. There must be the hermit-like aspect of philosophy and peace and yet the war-like aspect of facing conflict and proving oneself in battle to physically be the strongest.

The lions below the main body of the trophy embody both the strength of the victor who holds the MMA Super Cup as well as the constant challenges and difficulties that that victor must go through to continuously prove themselves to be the very best that there is anywhere. The green that is found around the rim of the top of the trophy is a further embodiment of what the man represents and stands for and it presents the importance of wisdom on behalf of the holder also.


Lastly, it is beyond important to the leadership of BRAVE CF that the trophy is always kept in the utmost condition of respect and reverence. The trophy is the physical symbol of pride, success and honor and must always be treated as such.

The trophy is only ever worthy of being held gloveless by those who win it and have therefore met and exceeded the same challenges that the figure holding Earth did. This is perhaps the most reverent and symbol-laden prize in MMA today and one nation is going to have the eternal honor of being its first ever holder and thus writing their names into the annals of MMA history forever.


In cooperation with the IMMAF and the Khalid Bin Hamad Sports Organization (KHK SPORTS), the MMA Super Cup 2022 will be held at BRAVE International Fight Week 2022 under the patronage of His Highness Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa. Quarterfinal bouts will take place at Khalifa Sports City in Isa Town, Bahrain on March 9, 2022 and the finals will be at the same venue on March 12, 2022.
