Event closes busy stretch of back-to-back events for the promotion.

BRAVE Combat Federation is set to take over Germany. In association with leading local promotion NFC, the fastest-growing organization in the world will land for the first time on German soil on August 6, for BRAVE CF 61.

Both organizations can now confirm the full fight card, which is led by a super lightweight bout of epic proportions. German hero Marcel Grabinski is closing in on a title shot in his division, but will need to go past Joilton Lutterbach, as the German-Brazilian standout makes his promotional debut on short notice.
