Brian Hooi set to headline main event at Brave 12

Manama : Brian Hooi will be fighting in the main event at Brave 12: KHK Legacy facing Eldar Eldarov. At 23 years of age, Hooi from Netherlands will be fighting his 22nd fight in his professional career. 

The fight will mark his return to Brave Combat Federation after almost an year. Previously he had fought in Brave 5: Go For Glory in Mumbai, India where he faced a disappointing loss against Erick Carlos Silva in split decision. 

Hooi bounced back and revived his career and in his last appearance Hooi defeated Islam Khapilaev from Russia at the German MMA Championship 13 by TKO. The bout against Eldarov marks the 22nd fight for the 23 year old Hooi from Netherlands.

“I think its an awesome opportunity that I get to fight in the main event. Given my age there will be very few fighters who can bring the level of experience and fight record. Indonesia is a nation passionate about martial arts and it will be a great opportunity to fight in Indonesia. Eldar is among fighters no one dares to call out for a fight. I got no message for my opponent. I will deliver my message to him in the cage on fight night.” said Brian Hooi.
