Mafra to represent Brazil

Manama : Leonardo Mafra stated that he will be looking to make his first appearance in Brave Combat Federation memorable with a victory over Gadzhimusa Gaziev. 

The bout will be featured at Brave 12: KHK Legacy hosted on 11th May at Jakarta, Indonesia. 

Mafra will be the sole Brazilian fighter in the fight card for Indonesia. 

A victory over Gaziev will propel him in the division which is still awaiting to crown a champion. 

“I am very excited for my debut with Brave Combat Federation. I know it won’t be an easy fight, I want to make sure that I put on a great performance and represent my country in the best way possible. Brave Combat Federation is the global promotion that elevated athletes into global superstars and contributed for the growth of the sport regionally and Internationally. The event will make a huge difference in Indonesia,” said Mafra.

Mafra was supposed to make his promotional debut at Brave 6. 

Mafra, fights out of Kings MMA with legendary coach Rafael Cordeiro, admits he didn’t study Gaziev, but says he knows his opponent’s style and is ready to rise above him at Brave 12. 

“I have never had an easy fight and I know he is a great athlete, but so am I. Granted, I didn’t study him, but we went through his style of fighting. I have always had in mind that if I can impose my style during a fight, I am able to beat everyone, and that is the mindset I will carry on to the Brave cage on May 11th,” added Mafra.
