One of Brazil’s best-known fighters will be back in action in his home country, as Leonardo “Macarrão” Mafra has been added to the BRAVE CF 35 card. The show will take place at his hometown of Balneário Camboriú, Brazil, as Leonardo makes his return to the city after six years from his last bout at home. At BRAVE CF 35, he will welcome Englishman Carl Booth to Super Lightweight.
“Macarrão” is riding high at BRAVE Combat Federation, after getting his first win for the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world. He beat Djamil Chan via unanimous decision back at BRAVE CF 25 and will look to follow it up with another victory in front of his home crowd.
Booth, on the other hand, will look to build on his two-fight win streak against Mafra in his Super Lighweight debut. “The Bomber” is coming off victories over Dino Bagattin and Hayder Hassan, the last one in the main event of BRAVE CF 32, in Kyrgyzstan.
Carl has been knocking at the door of a title shot at Welterweight but hopes to become a double threat with a dominant performance against “Macarrão” at Super Lightweight.
BRAVE CF 35 will be headlined by Cleiton “Predator” Silva’s first title defense as the reigning Lightweight world champion takes on top contender Guram Kutateladze, from Sweden. Also confirmed for BRAVE Combat Federation’s fifth trip to Brazil is the return of former Lightweight titleholder Luan “Miau” Santiago, who meets submission expert Amin Ayoub in the main card.
