Teaser for Brave Jordan released; champions’ homecoming hinted

Brave Combat Federation has released the first teaser trailer for its second Jordan event. The organization announced earlier this week that it would return to Amman, in April, for Brave 23, and has now given a few more details about the groundbreaking show.

Through its social media profiles, the promotion has hinted at the return of world champions and Jordanian heroes Jarrah Al-Selawe and Abdul-Kareem Al-Selwady.

Meanwhile, his countryman Abdul-Kareem Al-Selwady shocked the MMA world with a dominant first-round win over Brazilian veteran Lucas “Mineiro”, to claim the undisputed Lightweight title. Al-Selwady is also undefeated under the Brave banner, with five wins in as many fights for the promotion.

Other names ventilated during the teaser are those of Mounir Lazzez, who impressed in his Brave debut, Eldar Eldarov, who hasn’t fought since Brave 12, and Luan “Miau” Santiago, a recent winner against Djamil Chan at Brave 18.

Brave 23 will mark the second time the biggest MMA promotion in the Middle East lands in Amman, Jordan.
