“We have the deepest flyweight division in the world of mixed martial arts,” Brave CF president Mohammed “The Hawk” Shahid said, adding that his promotion has some of the best fighters that deserve the chance to be the best in the world.
Brave was supposed to crown its inaugural flyweight world champion on Nov. 16, 2018 during the match between Velimurad Alkhasov of Russia and Marcel Adur of Brazil in Bahrain. The Russian fighter won the bout but he was not given the world belt because he failed to make weight.
