BRAVE Combat Federation will begin its much-anticipated Flyweight tournament at BRAVE CF 42, which takes place as part of the Kombat Kingdom series, in Bahrain. Three of the four quarter-finals will take place this Thursday, September 24th, in what has been seen as the best tournament ever put on for the 125-pound division.
Six fighters have travelled to Bahrain for the first round of the tournament, as Marcel Adur was forced to pull out of the grand-prix due to injury and his fight with Dustin Ortiz has been canceled - Ortiz will have another opponent for his quarter-final bout.
Even though all of the athletes involved in the tournament are rivals and can become future opponents, they can agree on one thing: BRAVE CF has assembled the biggest tournament the division has ever seen.
‘’I truly believe that the winner will be the best in the world at Flyweight. You’ve got older, more experienced guys but also younger fighters. I think I’m the only one in my prime, you have guys like Sean Santella and Zach Makovsky, more experienced, and then the younger guys like Flavio Queiroz, Abdul Hussein, and Velimurad Alkhasov. This is the best Flyweight tournament ever’’, said Jose Torres, who takes on Santella in the main event of BRAVE CF 42.
For Flavio Queiroz, who meets Velimurad Alkhasov, the difference has been the several storylines about the athletes included in the tournament and he also believes BRAVE CF has put together a huge opportunity for the Flyweights.
‘’You have different guys, with different stories, in different phases of their careers. I’m excited for that and I truly believe it’s the best place to be if you’re a Flyweight. BRAVE CF has assembled the best tournament and it’s an honor to be chosen to represent Brazil in this GP, it shows that I’m truly, truly a world-class fighter’’, commented Flavio.
BRAVE CF 42 takes place at the Bahrain National Stadium, on September 24th, with a triple headliner, as three of four tournament quarter-finals go down at the show. Also set for fight night is a duel between top Bantamweights Hamza Kooheji and Aidan James, as well as a Lightweight clash between Maciej Gierszewski and Rolando Dy.
