Fighting at historic BRAVE CF 80 simply a ‘no-brainer’ for former champion and Arab icon Jarrah Al-Silawi

From December 5, BRAVE CF will be hosting three blockbuster events in the Kingdom of Bahrain over a span of ten days, as part of the BRAVE International Combat Week, the largest combat sports festival on the planet.

The third and final show will be BRAVE CF 80 on December 15. The expectation has always been that we’d see some incredible bouts from top to bottom and the most global promotion in MMA has delivered on the promise, bringing a world-class fight card to finish the year.

For Arab fans, two occasions will be unmissable and historic at BRAVE CF 80: the duel between Arab Legends and UK & Ireland, and the return of Jarrah Al-Silawi. A two-time BRAVE CF Super Welterweight world champion, and widely regarded as the best Arab fighter of all time, ‘’The Jordanian Lion’’ will return to his second home, and even though he won’t be a part of the Arab Legends team, he still felt compelled to return to action in the Middle East at such an occasion.

One of the biggest examples of BRAVE CF’s commitment to the development of Arab fighters, Al-Silawi became known worldwide through his battles with BRAVE CF, putting together a formidable 9-1 record with the promotion, and his only loss coming via split decision, and avenged in an immediate rematch with a TKO victory for Jarrah.

It is this legendary run that he hopes to recreate for one night only, at the Khalifa Sports City Arena, which is the home of many of his biggest accomplishments, such as his wins over Erik Carlsson and Carl Booth. As an Arab legend, missing the opportunity to fight at such an impactful card for the region’s fighters was simply not an option.
