The VIP list for BRAVE Combat Federation’s invite-only, exclusive event on July 25th, keeps growing. A few more big names have been added to BRAVE 24: London, a once-in-a-lifetime experience set to empower the sport of mixed martial arts by connecting it to the highest level of businessmen, politicians, celebrities and influencers from around the world.
Former MMA fighter and Light Heavyweight contender Jimi Manuwa will be in attendance to witness a turning point for the sport in Europe, as he will watch the highest level of mixed martial arts from around the world from a VIP standpoint.
Also appearing in the luxurious fight night is former fighter turned commentator Dan Hardy, who is also starting, alongside referee Marc Goddard, the EMMAA (English MMA Association), designed to focus on the development of the sport in England on a grassroots level. This is in line with BRAVE CF’s ethos of developing mixed martial arts from the ground up, with its support of IMMAF-WMMAA and amateur athletes overall.
World-renowned celebrities have also been confirmed, as MasterChef Brazil judge Henrique Fogaça, and comedian Whindersson Nunes, owner of the fourth-largest YouTube channel in the world, will travel from Brazil to cheer on their personal friend Lucas “Mineiro” Martins.
The former Lightweight world titleholder will look to become the first-ever BRAVE CF double champion, as he drops back down to Featherweight to challenge current world champion Bubba Jenkins in the main event of BRAVE 24: London.
