BRAVE Combat Federation’s first foray into South Korea has its first three fights. The Bahrain-based mixed martial arts promotion will hold “BRAVE CF 58” in Incheon, South Korea on April 30, 2022.

Polish standouts Mihail Kotruta and Marcin Bandel return to action against Maciej Gierszewski and Luis Felipe Dias, respectively, at “BRAVE CF 58”. Also announced is a lightweight tilt between Philippines’ Rolando Dy and local talent Ho Taek Oh.

A super welterweight, Bandel earned a very impressive victory in his BRAVE CF debut, submitting previously undefeated Magomed Ayskhanov after dropping him in the first round of their “BRAVE CF 54” bout. He welcomes Dias who is finally set for his promotional debut.

Dias is widely recognized as one of the top Brazilian fighters in his weight class and has had to deal with two last-minute cancellations. At “BRAVE CF 55”, visa issues stopped him from fighting in Russia and at “BRAVE CF 57”, Nursulton Ruziboev refused to give him a portion of his own fight purse after not making weight and the fight was cancelled.

“BRAVE CF 58” will also feature a huge super lightweight bout as Kotruta looks for his first win under the BRAVE CF banner against Gierszewski. Both men are known for their knockout prowess with Kotruta having 9 KO/TKOs out of his 13 professional wins and Gierszewski having all of his wins by the same way.

Finally, it has been announced that Dy will get a new chance to move forward in the lightweight division after a disappointing 2021. He faces Oh, who makes his promotional debut for the fastest growing organization in the world.

“BRAVE CF 58” will be held in association with Beast CF, one of the leading promotions in South Korea. The show is headlined by Tae Kyun Kim who faces an opponent still to be announced.

South Korea will become the 26th country to host a BRAVE CF event. It is the 11th Asian country to do so.
