Rolando Dy returns to BRAVE CF to mentor the future of Filipino MMA

BRAVE Combat Federation fans have not seen the last of Rolando Dy as the former BRAVE CF athlete will make another appearance in the world’s fastest-growing promotion this month.


After retiring in September, Dy returns to BRAVE CF, only this time, it will be in the form of a mentor and coach as he looks to guide the future generation of Filipino MMA.


His quest begins at BRAVE CF 66 this month in Bali, Indonesia where he will take his countryman, Ruel Panales, under his wing and help him acclimatize to the rigors of fighting in one of the toughest MMA promotions in the world – BRAVE Combat Federation.


The 25-year-old Bantamweight – who trains at Dy’s gym, Dyincredible Fighting and Fitness Center in Calabarzon – comes into BRAVE CF unbeaten riding a five-fight win streak with his last fight against Russia’s Magomed Gadzhimuradov ending via a doctor’s stoppage win at UAE Warriors earlier this year.



He will look to make a name for himself in the BRAVE CF Bantamweight division when he comes up against the dangerous Indian MMA veteran, Mohammad Farhad who will be keen on getting back to winning ways after losing to Egypt’s Maysara Mohamed at BRAVE CF 57 earlier this year.

Dy brought the curtain down on an illustrious career at BRAVE CF 62 shortly after losing to Kazakhstan’s Olzhas Eskaraev. It was the end of an impressive 27-fight professional career that included many highs for “The Incredible” who worked his way to becoming his nation’s most celebrated and experienced mixed martial artist.


Dy has fought in six promotions across the world. He is adored by millions of fans not only for his ability to put on spectacular fights, but also for his good nature.


Dy impressively flew the Philippines flag nine times in the BRAVE CF cage. One of his most stand-out moments under the BRAVE Combat Federation banner was when he won the BRAVE CF 2020 “Fighter of the Year” award.


Dy has fought the best mixed martial artists in the world and “The Incredible” will bring a wealth of knowledge to any athlete. Having Dy in his corner will stand Panales – who has forged a strong bond with the former star – in good stead as he makes his debut on November 26 against the dangerous Farhad.


BRAVE CF 66 sees the world’s fastest-growing MMA organisation return to Indonesia after a four-year hiatus. The fight card will be headlined by a colossal Flyweight fight as Kazakhstan’s Asu Almabaev looks to cement his Number-One contender status when he faces Bahrain’s Muhammad Idrisov.
