Alex Lohoré earned a quick and vicious win on his BRAVE CF debut
 
BRAVE Combat Federation’s historic debut event in the Netherlands, BRAVE CF 83 is in the books and the event delivered some exciting action for the fans in attendance and around the world.
 
In the main event, Alex Lohoré made a significant impact in his promotional debut by defeating former Super Welterweight champion Marcin Bandel in under two minutes of the opening round. Despite Bandel's aggressive start with heavy punches, Lohoré countered with a powerful right hand that knocked Bandel down, prompting the referee to stop the fight. Bandel was visibly unhappy with the stoppage, while Lohoré expressed his interest in competing for the Super Welterweight title during his post-fight interview.
 
Noach Blyden put on a striking clinic in the co-main event of the night as he dominated Oskar Herczyk before finishing the fight in the first round with a body shot.
 
Oskar, who took up the fight on short notice, was in constant search of a takedown but failed to break through the excellent defence of Blyden who piled up offense before landing the finishing touches. This is the fourth straight first-round finish for the kickboxing superstar who transitioned into MMA on the back of an undefeated kickboxing career.
 
Striking legend Youssef Boughanem made an impressive BRAVE CF debut by defeating Saad Touijar. The opening round saw Saad challenging Youssef with his grappling skills. However, Youssef, a multiple-time Muay Thai World champion, gained momentum and landed several significant strikes to close the round. He carried this momentum into the second round, winning by ground and pound and maintaining his undefeated professional MMA record.
 
Muhammad Idrisov returned to BRAVE Combat Federation with a quick first-round submission win against Zaka Fatullazade. Despite a significant weight difference, Idrisov dominated from the start and secured an arm-triangle choke three minutes into the first round.
 
In the night's opening fight, Chequina Noso Pedro earned a crucial submission victory over Ali Isajew, handing the Austrian his first professional MMA loss. Ali nearly finished the fight in the first round with a rear-naked choke but could not complete the submission. In the second round, after a failed guillotine attempt by Pedro, he reversed the position and locked in an anaconda choke to secure the win. This marks Pedro's second consecutive victory in BRAVE Combat Federation.
 
BRAVE CF 83, held in association with Enfusion’s ECE MMA brand, cemented BRAVE Combat Federation's status as the most hosted MMA organization in Europe and globally. The Netherlands became the 14th European nation and the 32nd country worldwide to host a BRAVE CF event; both records are unmatched by any other MMA organization in the world.
