BRAVE Combat Federation is set for a return to Kazakhstan, with its 62nd show taking place in Almaty, on September 30, in association with Octagon League. After announcing the first fights for the event, BRAVE CF officials have confirmed four more bouts set to take Central Asia by storm once again.
Leading the charge is amateur double world champion and undefeated fighter Murtaza Talha (5-0). The KHK Team Bahrain star drops down definitively to middleweight as he takes on promotional newcomer Kirill Kohmitsky (8-2). A win could very well place Talha near the top of the division, with the 185-pound BRAVE CF world championship currently vacant.
Saudi Arabia superstar Abdullah Al-Qahtani (5-0) faces Ilyor Bakhtiyar Uulu (6-1) at featherweight, with Sanjarbek Erkinov (8-5) welcoming Anzor Abdulkhozhaev (11-2) back to featherweight in two huge bouts added to BRAVE CF's return to Kazakhstan.
A lightweight tilt of epic proportions will also take place at BRAVE CF 62, as jiu-jitsu specialist Kamil Magomedov (15-2) takes on feared contender Akhmed Shervaniev (14-1-1), with the winner placing himself near the top of the heap at 155 pounds.
BRAVE CF 62 will put Kazakhstan in a select list of nations that have hosted three or more BRAVE CF shows, in an exclusive club headed by Bahrain, and also featuring Brazil, UAE, Sweden, Romania and India.

- Olzhas Eskaraev vs. Rolando Dy
