Top Bantamweights Tariq Ismail and Nkosi Ndebele to clash at BRAVE CF 48: Arabian Nights

A clash of two fan-favourite Bantamweights is the latest addition to BRAVE CF 48: Arabian Nights, scheduled for March 18, in the Kingdom of Bahrain, also known as “The Kombat Kingdom”, as Kuwait-Canadian Tariq Ismail takes on South Africa’s Nkosi Ndebele.

Tariq Ismail holds a professional record of 6 wins and a single loss, suffered on his last professional appearance, against Bernardo Sopai, at BRAVE CF 38, back in October.

Eager to bounce back after experiencing the bitter taste for the first time ever, the “Desert Storm” will face fierce competition in one of the most prominent young stars in African Mixed Martial Arts: Nkosi “King” Ndebele.

Ndebele boasts a pro record of three wins and one loss, on top of an amateur record of 12 wins and three losses, which includes IMMAF-level competition and African titles.

“King” is currently on a two-win streak at BRAVE Combat Federation, after a dominant decision victory over Ian Cleary and a first-round knockout over Zia Mashwani.

BRAVE CF 48 will be headlined by the Lightweight bout between Ylies Djiroun and Abdul-Rakhman Makhazhievthe and is the second of four consecutive events scheduled by the truly global promotion, starting on March 11 and culminating in the historic BRAVE CF 50, on April 1st.
