Former UFC lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar will return as the guest commentator at Brave 8: The Rise of Champions. Edgar captured the gold from B.J. Penn at UFC 112 in April 2010. Edgar had debuted as a commentator in the third edition of Brave Combat Federation. The former UFC title holder will be ringside along with play-by-play commentator Cyrus Fees in Curitiba, Brazil on Aug. 12.
Edgar was praised for giving a fighter’s point of view on some of the most exciting bouts in Brave history. The event is special for Bahrain’s Brave Combat Federation as it features two championship title matches. In the main event, Timo Feucht from Germany faces Klidson Farias of Brazil in a light heavyweight championship title match while in the co-main event, Mohammad Fakhreddine from Lebanon takes on Carl Booth from England in a welterweight championship title match.
