Abdul Hussein, Youngest ever World and European champion signed by Brave Combat Federation

Brave Combat Federation has signed the youngest ever World and European amateur MMA champion. Abdul Hussein of Finland is the first athlete to win both accolades by the age of 18.

In 2016, Abdul was ranked first in all divisions by the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF). In November of that year Abdul became a professional mixed martial artist and remains undefeated with four straight victories to his career. The bantamweight IMMAF gold medalist has his roots in Palestine and was born in a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon. His family moved to Finland during his childhood.

Abdul will be facing Nawras Abzakh of Jordan at Brave 10: The Kingdom Rises which will be hosted in Amman, Jordan on March 2, 2018. Nawras who was undefeated until his last fight against Felipe Efrain will be competing at a high stake match to revive his career.

“It was really difficult for me as the last fight was my first loss in the history of my career but that only makes me work harder to prove myself”, said Navras Abzakh about his current status.
