The former number one pound-for-pound amateur fighter in the world will continue to develop in the professional ranks at the fastest-growing MMA organization on the globe. Muhammad Mokaev has signed to fight for BRAVE CF at the Kombat Kingdom and will be in action again on October 1st at BRAVE CF 43, the final chapter of the series.
His opponent will be announced in the coming days, as Mokaev will look to keep his momentum going after beating Glenn McVeigh in his pro debut and resolving one of the nastiest rivalries of the year, as the two young men traded intense trash talk ahead of their BRAVE CF 37 bout.
Now Mokaev will return to the Kingdom of Bahrain, the site of his biggest triumphs so far – his two amateur world titles, where he became the top fighter in the world in the IMMAF rankings both in his own weight class as well as pound-for-pound in the junior divisions.
Recently turned 20, Mokaev is the hottest prospect in mixed martial arts. His well-rounded game, with fierce takedowns and staggering top control as well as inventive striking has made him one of the fighters to watch in the sport in the coming years, and he justified that hype by dominating a very tough McVeigh – who won a BRAVE CF contract for his efforts on short-notice against ‘’The Punisher’’.
BRAVE CF 43 will be the third of three world-class events BRAVE Combat Federation will host in Bahrain for the Kombat Kingdom series. In the coming days, more bouts will be announced for what promises to be a tremendous ending to a highly-anticipated three weeks of fighting.
