After announcing Jose Torres vs Matheus Nicolau as the first bout of its flyweight tournament, BRAVE has added Marcel Adur vs Malcom Gordon to the opening round.
The Flyweight clash will take place in Balneário Camburiú, Brazil, at the upcoming BRAVE 35 card.
A long-time BRAVE veteran, Marcel Adur is going to his sixth appearance under the Bahrain-based banner. With a professional record of 15 wins and five losses, Adur won four out of his five last bouts.
With the Flyweight Tournament Adur will have his third shot at the BRAVE CF Flyweight title, with the Brazilian being denied the first two due to events beyond his control.
In 2018, the match against Velimurad Alkhasov ended up not being valid for the title after the Russian failed to make weight and in 2019 the fight against Torres was canceled last-minute after the American pulled from the card during the fight week.
Ranked no. 1 in the flyweight division in Canada, Malcom Gordon is set to make his BRAVE CF debut against Marcel Adur. The 29-year-old Calgary-born holds a professional record of 12 wins and three losses and is currently on a four-win streak – all of them via knockout or submission.
BRAVE 35 will take place on 24 March and marks the fifth time the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world hosts an event in Brazil.
The country will become the number one home of BRAVE Combat Federation alongside the Kingdom of Bahrain. The show will see Cleiton make the first defense of his lightweight title against Guram Kutateladze.
