BAHRAIN and Brave Combat Federation are set to enter a golden era as the fastest-growing mixed martial arts organisation last night announced a very special event to be held in the kingdom on November 15.
A newly-minted KHK World Championship Belt, the heaviest prize in sports today, weighing 6.2kg of solid gold, will be on the line in a one-night, four-men open-weight tournament, it was announced at a press conference last night.
The winner of this prestigious belt will be crowned the best fighter on the planet, regardless of weight-classes.
The four fighters (plus one alternate) will be chosen through an open application, as fighters from around the world will have the chance to sign up for an opportunity to win a huge cash prize of $100,000, as well as make history by becoming the first-ever KHK World Championship belt holder.
The only requirement for fighters signing up to be a part of the historical tournament is that they must have at least one professional win on their records, according to the organisers.
The Grand Prix will not be restricted to Brave Combat Federation fighters. Free agents, as well as athletes from other promotions, are welcome to join the race for the KHK World Championship belt as long as these fighters get a temporary release from their employers.
Applications will be accepted from today to October 10.
KHK MMA and Brave Combat Federation will announce the ten fighters to make the first cut three days later, and the four finalists will be chosen on October 15.
The tournament takes place during Brave 30 on November 15, the biggest-ever edition of the Brave International Combat Week, which is already the largest combat sports festival in Asia.
During the week, the IMMAF World Championships will take place in Bahrain, as over 500 athletes from more than 60 countries travel to the Kingdom for the Olympics of mixed martial arts.
