Muhammed “The Punisher” Mokaev has been on a road towards making history ever since his professional debut with BRAVE Combat Federation. After earning five pro victories, and recently coming out victorious at the British Senior Wrestling Championship, Mokaev jumps in the conversation asking for a fight at BRAVE CF 51 planned for June 4th in Minsk, Belarus.
Viewed as the biggest rising star in the sport, Mokaev is a prime example of the importance of professional mixed martial arts promotions working alongside the amateur mixed martial arts scene and a testament to the BRAVE Combat Federation world-class scouting program.
During his last fight under the BRAVE CF banner, Mokaev demonstrated his readiness for tougher and more challenging bouts by defeating the #1 Flyweight in the Nordic Europe region Abdul Hussein, a fellow amateur world champion, a bout in which his exceptional wrestling made the difference against a top opponent.
After winning his division at the British Senior Wrestling Championship, Mokaev shifted the focus back to mixed martial arts and went on social media to ask the president of BRAVE CF Mohammed Shahid to give him a fight at the upcoming event in Minsk, Belarus, and urging his ever-growing fanbase to ‘’convince’’ the fastest-growing organization in the world to promote his return to action.
This comes after his latest statement regarding the reason behind his desire to take part in the event.
“Belarus would be a great country for me to fight as there are Russian speaking fans that can finally watch me live,” says Mokaev. “I believe I will be fight of the night again in Belarus. I had three fights in BRAVE CF and three Fight of the Night bonuses.”
BRAVE CF 51: The Future Is Here has a stacked fight card ready to go, which is headlined by two of the top Lightweights on the roster, as former German two-division champion Marcel Grabinski takes on former world champion Lucas ‘’Mineiro’’ Martins. The biggest show in Belarusian MMA history will be held in association with Rukh Sport Management.
