India’s hope Rana Rudra meets Ali Guliev in Asia’s biggest event, BRAVE CF 47
After confirming that the undefeated young stars Husein Kadimagomaev and Tae Kyun Kim would meet at BRAVE CF 47, BRAVE Combat Federation announced yet another clash of unbeaten fighters for the March 11th card: Rana Rudra vs Ali Guliev, in a Catchweight bout of 63kg.
Rana Rudra carries the weight of a whole nation over his shoulders, as the youngster is labeled as the biggest hope of Indian Mixed Martial Arts. With a professional record of 10 wins and no losses, Rana is making his BRAVE CF debut after making waves in the local and regional scene.
Since he signed with BRAVE Combat Federation, Rana Rudra has been very vocal about his interest in making his debut sooner rather than later. A series of call outs and public challenges were issued by the Indian fighter until the day finally arrived.
For his international debut, Rudra will be welcomed by one of Azerbaijan’s top athletes, who’s also making his promotional debut: Ali Guliev. As his opponent, the 5-0 Azerbaijani was shining in the regional scene, which ended up catching the eyes of BRAVE CF scouting.
BRAVE CF 47 will take place on March 11 in the Kingdom of Bahrain, also known as Kombat Kingdom. The event will open a series of four consecutive cards held by the truly global promotion in its home nation.
The event will be headlined by the Lightweight title eliminator between Kyrgyzstan’s Abdysalam Kubanychbek and Philippine’s Rolando Dy.
BRAVE CF 47 is set to empower Asian MMA with athletes from several regions in the continent expected to be in action. BRAVE CF is the only Asian organization to provide the Asian fighters with a truly global platform, something which both Guliev and Rudra will enjoy in their careers under the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world.
