Author, Media Entrepreneur and MMA pioneer from The United States of America, Kirik Jenness praised the team behind Brave Combat Federation leading to host Asia’s largest Mixed Martial Arts event in Bahrain. Kirik Jenness has an extensive background and knowledge of the sport.
Also featured as a top commentator, he is considered an MMA pioneer, working in the industry since its No Holds Barred days and in a variety of roles, from a fighter (with a record of 2-0) to a manager, trainer, and founder of MixedMartialArts. com and The Underground Forum. He has also written two books about MMA and has been the referee for professional bouts.
“The growth of Brave Combat Federation is the biggest story of the year in all of mixed martial arts. What Brave is doing - one or more shows per month in different countries all across the planet - has never been done before. I have been involved in the sport on a professional, fulltime basis since very shortly after the birth of its modern inception in 1993, and I would have bet it was impossible; I’m glad no one asked me.
The logistical and personnel and regulatory issues when entering a new country are beyond immense, they are overwhelming. It shouldn’t be possible. It is made possible because of the vision and resources of HH Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, and the leadership of “The Hawk” - Brave president Mohammed Shahid”, said Jenness.
