Fakhreddine back on the Brave 6 card, faces Lukasz Witos at Catchweight

After missing weight for his Brave 6 feature bout against Leonardo Mafra, Mohammad Fakhreddine was desperate to fight, regardless of weight classes. After the bout with the former UFC fighter officially fell through, the Lebanese Welterweight opted to stay on the card and will face Lukasz Witos at a Catchweight of 81 kg, Brave officials announced today.

In Kazakhstan as an alternate, Witos will make his Brave debut on short-notice, and while he's usually a Middleweight, he was able to come down to 81 kg. and weighed in right after the bout was verbally agreed.

Mohammad Fakhreddine will make his second appearance inside the Brave cage, after winning his debut at the end of March. He was originally scheduled to fight Brazil's Leonardo Mafra at Welterweight, but wasn't able to make the contracted weight, and the bout was called off. Eager to remain on the card, the Lebanese agreed to take on a heavier opponent in Witos, who holds a professional record of 8 wins with 4 losses, and is on a two-fight winning streak.

Brave 6: Kazakhstan is the first installment of Brave in Central Asia and will take place on April 29th, at the Halyk Arena, in Almaty City. The card is a co-promotion between Brave and the local event Qazaq FC, featuring athletes from both rosters.
