On Wednesday, Brave Combat Federation announced that the upcoming Brave CF 45 event has been postponed. The card was slated to gone down on Nov. 12 in Bahrain, but it was delayed after prince Khalifa Bin Salman al-Khalifa died at the age of 84, according to the state-run Bahrain News Agency. As a member of the royal family, Prince Khalifa served as the prime minister of the country since 1970. He was also related to Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the founder of Brave.
The previous week, the Brave CF 45 card also underwent some significant changes. The main event should have been a featherweight clash between Dumar Roa and Gabriel Miranda, but Miranda was diagnosed with COVID-19 before he could leave Brazil to fly to Bahrain. Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Ian Entwistle (9-3) stepped in on short notice to face "Corazon De Leon" in a 150-pound catchweight tilt.
Now, Brave CF 45 will go down on Nov. 19. In the co-main event, Kubanych Abdisalam (14-2) will put his seven-bout winning streak on the line as he locks horns with Brave newcomer Valeriu Mircea (25-6-1) in a 160-pound catchweight scrap. The card will also feature an exciting light heavyweight matchup between Mohamed Said Maalem (10-3) and Zvonimir Kralj (7-3).
