Brave Combat Federation is nominated for two major citations at the 13th Annual World MMA Awards.
The Bahrain-based promotion joins the Best Promotion of the Year category with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Bellator MMA, Legacy Fighting Alliance and UAE Warriors.
Amid the pandemic, PFL made its return last April for the 2021 regular season, setting up shop in a state-of-the-art bubble at the Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Like other MMA promotions, BRAVE CF also had to cancel a couple of its scheduled events at the onset of the global health crisis. However, it managed to bounce back a few months later and held a successful series of shows in countries such as Slovenia, Romania, Sweden and its home base of Bahrain.
This year, BRAVE CF has extended its reach in Europe, hosting fight cards in Russia, Belarus and Italy. The promotion is slated to have another show in the region with its debut offering in Konin, Poland on September 25.
Apart from the company itself, BRAVE CF president Mohammed Shahid is likewise one of the five nominees for the Leading Man of the Year award alongside UFC boss Dana White, MMA manager Ed Soares, IMMAF chief Densign White and Bellator’s Scott Coker.
Voting for the 13th Annual Fighters Only World MMA Awards is now underway at worldmmaawards.com. It will conclude on Sept. 8.
BRAVE CF will return to Almaty, Kazakhstan on August 21st to hold BRAVE CF 53. Hometown hero Nurzhan Akishev is penciled to face South Korea’s Tae Kyun Kim in the main event.
