Kooheji to represent Bahrain at Brave 37

Bahrain’s biggest MMA fighter has a date for his return to competition. After an unforgettable homecoming at BRAVE CF 29, when he dominated Nahuel Gandolfi in front of a sold-out Bahraini audience, Hamza Kooheji will take his talents to Sweden.

“The Pride of Bahrain” is set to welcome dangerous Jaures Dea to the Bantamweight division at BRAVE CF 37, on April 18th, in Sweden. K o o h e j i will be defending a three-fight win streak, which culminated in the co-main event spot at BRAVE CF 29, where he lifted up the Kingdom of Bahrain with an incredible performance, knocking out “El Roble” in the third round and climbing up higher towards an eventual title shot.

Hamza has been hailed as a pioneer of mixed martial arts in the Kingdom of Bahrain, as he has flown the flag in the highest of places and has become synonymous with the booming sport in the Kingdom as one of the biggest professional success stories. In front of “The Pride of Bahrain”, lies a dangerous opponent.

“The Crazy Cameroonian” is coming off four straight victories and makes his BRAVE Combat Federation debut against Kooheji as the number six Bantamweight fighter in the Middle East - Hamza is listed as number four in the region. BRAVE CF 37 will be headlined by a gigantic title fight, as current Welterweight world champion Jarrah Al-Selawe looks to defend his crown against Khamzat Chimaev, the biggest prospect in Europe.

The show will take place at the Solnahallen, in Stockholm, Sweden, in partnership with AK Fighting Championship, and marks the third European show for BRAVE Combat Federation in 2020 so far, after a successful debut in Slovenia back in January and the upcoming BRAVE CF 36, which takes place in Romania, on April 13th.
