Rolando Gabriel Dy is back to the BRAVE Combat Federation after a five-fight run with the UFC.
“The Incredible” is set to make his return at home, during BRAVE CF’s debut in the Philippines, on March 15, with Pakistani powerhouse Mehmosh Reza as his opponent.
The son of the boxing world champion Rolando Navarrete, Dy has a professional record of 10 wins and 7 losses. His last appearance in BRAVE CF set an exotic record as the fastest No Contest in the history of the promotion.
At BRAVE 5 in 2016, Dy and his opponent Nelson Paes clashed heads within the first seconds of the fight and the bout was then stopped without a winner.
After the episode, Dy signed with the UFC and had five fights with USA-based promotion. His best result was a win over Wuliji Buren in Shanghai, China.
Dy’s opponent in his BRAVE CF comeback will be one of the hottest prospects in Asia. With an explosive personality and fight-style, Reza made waves in the truly global promotion with his debut last October.
In only 23 seconds, “The Renegade” submitted another Filipino fighter, Arben Escayo in a result that granted him the “Performance of the Night” award in BRAVE CF 17: Pakistan.
Since then, Mehmosh, who holds a 9-3 professional record, has been linked to a return to BRAVE CF cage.
Dy vs Reza will join another huge local vs foreigner clash in BRAVE CF 22’s fight card.
In the main event of the evening, the Bantamweight world champion Stephen Loman puts his title on the line against the former Featherweight kingpin Elias “Smile” Boudegzdame.
BRAVE CF 22: Storm of Warriors take place on March 15, at the Mall of Asia Arena, in Manila, Philippines.
The event will be the first one promoted in the country by Brave Combat Federation, the premier Bahrain-based organization founded by His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
