BRAVE 31 full fight card released; including clash of generations in South Africa
The second trip of BRAVE Combat Federation to South Africa already had a date and place set. Now, the fans know which fights will electrify the arena in Durban. The 10-bout card was announced by BRAVE officials and, apart from the already-published Middleweight title fight between Chad Hanekom and Daniel Gaucho, includes a historical clash of generations for the South African MMA scene.
A main card featured bout will take place between South African MMA pioneer Jeremy Smith and Mzwandile Hlongwa, one of the hottest prospects in the country and pointed as the face of the sport in the region for the upcoming years. “Pitbull” and “Snakebone” will meet in the Middleweight division.
In a quick turnaround, Dansheel Moodley is ready to action once again, only a few weeks after defeating Noureddin Hezrat in Romania. “Buddha” will face Philippines’ John Cris Corton in the co-main event of the evening.
Another stellar bout confirmed for BRAVE 31 is the return of “The Future” Nkosi Ndebele, who is set to face United Kingdom’s Ian Cleary in a Bantamweight bout. The fight will be featured in BRAVE 31 prelims.
BRAVE 31 takes place on December 7, in Durban, South Africa. The event will be headlined by the inaugural Middleweight title fight between local superstar Chad “Superman” Hanekom and Brazil’s Daniel “Gaucho” Souza.
