BRAVE CF 61: Gamzat Magomedov meets Borislav Nikolic in pivotal bantamweight matchup

Contest set for August 6 event in Bonn, Germany.

BRAVE Combat Federation's debut event in Germany has an immense addition to its fight lineup.

In association with NFC, BRAVE CF 61 will take place in Bonn, on August 6, and a pivotal bantamweight matchup will take place as the promotion has announced Gamzat Magomedov (6-1 MMA, 5-1 BCF) will take on Borislav Nikolic (9-1 MMA, 1-1 BCF) in a featured main card bout.

Magomedov is an amateur world champion under the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation and has been making waves at BRAVE CF since becoming a pro. In his latest bout, back at BRAVE CF 52, Magomedov shocked the world with a first-round KO of previously undefeated Mochamed Machaev.

The performance was impressive enough to earn Gamzat a nomination as 2021 BRAVE CF "Breakout Fighter of The Year," and he will hope to carry on the momentum against Nikolic.

After impressing in the local scene back in his native Serbia, Borislav earned a call-up to the big stage at BRAVE CF and put a spirited effort against Brad Katona at BRAVE CF 50. Although he lost the fight to the future champion, he has earned his way back into the win column by beating Matiss Zaharovs at BRAVE CF 56 and will look to announce himself as a future title challenger with a win over Magomedov.

BRAVE CF 61 will feature a super lightweight bout in the main event, with Marcel Grabinski taking on Vadim Kutsy on August 6. One week earlier, the fast-growing MMA organization makes its much-anticipated return to Brazil for BRAVE CF 60, which takes place in Goiania.
