"Brave Combat Federation will be focusing on more events in multiple cities across Brazil. It is a guarantee that Brazil has the key resources, talent and potential to be one of our key markets. I was very serious about an aggressive expansion strategy, and the tickets had already been sold out with broadcast deals in 6 languages already set." said Mohammed Shahid, President of Brave Combat Federation. Brave 3: Battle in Brazil will take place at the Max Rosenaman Arena, with capacity for 5,000 fans in São José dos Pinhais, Curitiba Metropolitan Area.

One of the other remarkable aspects will be the presence of Frankie Edgar as the guest color commentator. The former UFC Lightweight Champion and two-time Featherweight contender Frankie “The Answer” Edgar is a long-time partner of KHK MMA and a friend of His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad al Khalifa, founder and leader of KHK and Brave Combat Federation.
