Reigning Filipino Brave Combat Federation bantamweight champion, Stephen “Sniper” Loman, announced he will give everything in his upcoming bout in the Brave FC 22: Storm of Warriors during a press conference launching the event at the Resorts World, in Pasay City on Wednesday.
“It will be good. I will just give everything I’ve got,” said Loman (12, 2, 3 KOs), who goes head-to-head with French submission artist Elias “Smile” Boudegzdame (15, 5, 2 KOs).
Brave CF 22: Storm of Warriors will be held at the Mall of Asia Arena on March 15, 6 p.m.
Boudegzdame, who is renowned for his moniker “smile,” wishes the best for the hometown favorite.
“I wish the best for Stephen Loman and I wish the best for me,” said Boudegzame, who was just being generous with his praise for the local bet.
In all of Boudegzdame’s 15 fights, 13 were forced into submission, prompting Brave’s host Carlos Kramer to commend his finishing technique.
“Ladies and gentlemen, that’s an 87% finish ratio,” Kramer said.
Despite Boudegzdame’s phenomenal submission wins, he admitted that claiming the bantamweight belt will be a big challenge for him.
With both fighters hungry for domination, the Brave host admitted that the crowd expects a total war.
“It’s going to be an absolute war in our Brave 22,” Kramer announced.
Brave FC’s announcer, Kirik Jenness explained that Brave FC 22 is a fight one cannot miss.
“This is the fight you cannot miss. This card in two words--insanely great,” Jeness said.
He added that Brave FC is unique among other fighting organizations because it does not aim to profit, but rather give opportunity and unite nations together.
“The other fighting organizations out there are playing checkers or tic tac toe. They’re counting how many money they can get,” he said “That is not what Brave Combat Federation is. Brave Combat Federation is about giving opportunities to fellow fighters, bringing nations together.”
