The official fight card for BRAVE CF 46 has been announced and will feature the biggest local athletes competing with international stars, reports GDNOnline.
BRAVE Combat Federation has long identified Russia as one of the biggest markets for the growth of mixed martial arts, and has made it a point to sign and nurture the talent from all corners of the continental-sized country. This means the fastest-growing organisation in the world will put on a star-studded event for its first show in the nation.
The show will be headlined by the homecoming of Super Lightweight world champion Eldar Eldarov. He will defend his crown for the first time against top Brazilian veteran Leonardo Mafra. It will be the first time the historical belt – the first world title of the new weight-class – will be defended by a champion.
In the co-main event, BRAVE CF can confirm that Ali Bagautinov will make his promotional debut against Oleg Lichkovakha. Ali is a two-time sambo world champion and has several other accolades in multiple combat sports, making him one of Russia’s most successful martial artists. He will take on 24-year-old Lichkovakha, who despite his age, has more than 20 pro bouts to his name and will look for the biggest win of his career at BRAVE CF 46.
