Manama : Bertrand Amoussou praised the entry of Brave Combat Federation to Europe. Amoussou is the president of the French national sanctioning body, the Commission National de Mixed Martial Arts.
Amoussou was a national champion in judo and a member of the French national team for ten years. He became the bronze medallist at the 1990 European Judo Championships.
Amoussou became three-time world champion in Ju-Jitsu Combat. In 2004, Amoussou became the first Frenchman to win a Pride Fighting Championship bout. He also served as an ambassador for ju-jitsu at the 2010 Sport Accord Combat Games in Beijing.
Amoussou is the pioneer of MMA in France taking part in1995 at the 1st international Vale Tudo Championship in Rio De Janeiro.
“Brave Combat Federation found by Sheikh Khalid Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, is a new organisation that already made an impact in the MMA World. That
itself is a great achievement. I really like the fact that Brave is going everywhere and especially in Europe. Brave reminds mea little bit of Pride FC. They will put big pressure to the other European organisations and force them to raise their standard. Which is good for the MMA industry,” said Amoussou.
