BRAVE CF's Khamzat Maaev demands 'three fights in three continents' by end of 2023
Sep 28, 2023
Khamzat ‘Borz’ Maaev has mirrored global superstar Khamzat ‘Borz’ Chimaev in many ways since joining BRAVE Combat Federation, and now the Turkish-based fighter wants to prove that he is as durable as his doppelganger by calling his organization to give him fights in three different continents by the end of the year.
BRAVE Combat Federation continues to break new ground and maintain its status as the leader in world MMA. Earlier this month, BRAVE CF secured its position as the most-traveled MMA organization when Nantes, France, became the 29th nation to host BRAVE CF since its inception seven years ago – a world record.
Maaev has been keeping close tabs on BRAVE CF’s achievements and has publicly expressed his desire to travel with the brand and "smash everybody" around the world.
“I’m seeing BRAVE CF go all around the world, and I want to visit some places, too,” said Maaev, who made his BRAVE CF debut at BRAVE CF 71 with a blistering first-round knockout against Lebanon's Elie Farah in their Super Lightweight bout.
Maaev is unbeaten in four fights - all coming via first-round stoppages. Since signing with BRAVE CF, Maaev's supremacy within the BRAVE CF cage has transported BRAVE Nation fans back into time to a place where Chimaev haunted the BRAVE CF Middleweight and Welterweight stables, going on a four-fight win streak in a short space of time.
Aside from having the same names, the two athletes share many similarities.Not only were they both born in Chechnya, Russia, but more than that, they have similar physical features and possess terrifying power and lethal wrestling, which went viral across social media platforms.
The two stars have been training together in the United Arab Emirates of late, and Chimaev has seemed to rub off on Maaev as the latter is now motivated to produce quick turnaround fights, just like his “big brother”.
“Until the end of 2023, my goal is to fight three times on three continents. BRAVE Combat Federation, let’s make it happen! Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere. I smash!”
