Ahmed Amir is one of the few athletes with a perfect record inside the Brave cage. Chasing his third consecutive win under the Bahrain-based promotion’s banner, the Egyptian will now complete his move down to the Lightweight division and face his toughest challenge so far, Sweden’s Erik Carlsson.
The bout will take place on November 17th, at Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions, during the International Combat Week, Brave CF executives made official today.
Ahmed Amir shocked the world at Brave 1 after knocking out the hugely favorite grappler Richie “Boogeyman” Martinez within the first round. At Brave 4, “The Butcher” improved his streak with a submission over SBG’s Kevin Koldobsky.
Erik Carlsson had a rocky start at Brave, with a second-round submission against Jarrah Al Silawi but then the “Last Viking” dropped to his original weight class and made a huge impact, viciously knocking out Gadzhimusa Gaziev with a knee to the body at Brave 6: Kazakhstan.
Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions marks the promotion’s return to the Kingdom of Bahrain after a year spent expanding its operations and putting on groundbreaking events in countries such as Brazil (twice), Mexico, India, Kazakhstan and the United Arab Emirates. Brave 9 will be the culmination of the International Combat Week, alongside the IMMAF World Championships, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
