The full fight card and viewing information for Brave CF 48.

As Brave CF continues their road towards a major 50th event, more of Europe, Asia and Africa’s MMA prospect talents will square down at Brave CF 48: Arabain Nights, which takes place on March 18 in Bahrain.

In the main event of Brave CF 48, promotional newcomer Ylies Djiroun takes on Abdul Makhazhiev in a lightweight encounter.

Djiroun competed in the 2019 season of the PFL, losing both of his regular-season matchups to Islam Mamedov and Loik Radzhabov by split decision. Djiroun rebounded with a unanimous decision win over Maxim Pugachev at a Double Red XFN event in December 2019.

Djiroun did not compete in 2020. He was originally booked to face UFC veteran Artem Lobov in December 2020 at the ARENA FIGHT 2 in France, but the event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Makhazhiev had an approximately four-year run in ACA (formerly ACB) between 2015 and 2019, going 5-3, before making his Brave CF debut in December 2019, scoring a first-round submission of Sanzhar Azhibaev. He was booked to make his second Brave CF appearance twice in 2020, but both times the pandemic forced card cancelations.

The co-main event will see a super lightweight bout between Ahmed Labban and Nemanja Kovac. Both men will be making their Brave CF debuts.

Labban is a veteran of UAE Warriors, Desert Force and Phoenix FC. The former UAE Warriors welterweight title challenger was most recently in action in January 2020, losing to Juho Valamaa by decision.

Most of Kovac’s fights have come in the Serbian Battle Championship, where he is a former lightweight champion. Kovac comes into this fight on a six-fight win streak, most recently knocking off Ivan Vladimir at Serbian Battle Championship 29 in November.

Brave CF takes place on March 18 at 7:30 a.m ET/4:30 a.m. PT (2:30 p.m. in Bahrain) and can be viewed on BraveCFTV.com.
