“Brave 24: London” marks Brave Combat Federation’s first trip to London, England. The invite-only event is set to take mixed martial arts to the next level and could prove to become the start of a new era to the sport, according to International Mixed Martial Arts Federation president Kerrith Brown, a former Olympic athlete and bronze medalist in judo.

In charge of the biggest amateur MMA tournament in the world, Brown is a partner of Brave CF and the Kingdom of Bahrain, the host country for the IMMAF-World Mixed Martial Arts Association World Championships. He said, “‘Brave 24’ will be yet another milestone for Bahraini MMA and I wish the team every success for the event.”

According to Brown, Brave CF is doing the right thing by exposing MMA to a new audience. He believes the publicity that will be drawn from “Brave 24: London” could prove to become a seminal moment for the sport in the continental and world scales and hopes that the 2019 IMMAF-WMMAA World Championships in Bahrain in November 2019 also benefits from the already historical show.

“Publicity from the event should boost Brave’s profile over here and I hope also increase awareness about the amateur World Championships in Bahrain in November,”Brown stated. “I think a lot of benefits for the sport will come through connections made at the event and the opportunities that are developed from these. Looking back, it could prove a truly seminal event.”

“Brave 24: London” will take place at the Copper Box Arena, inside the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, in London, England on July 25, 2019. While the show is an invite-only, exclusive event, Brave CF fans will be able to watch it for free by signing up to BRAVE TV.

The live and free stream will not be available for fans from Brazil, the Middle East, the United States and the Philippines. They can check the official BRAVE TV website for listings.
