Another first round finish last night on @bravemmaf. Thank you to every single one of you who support me. I see it all and I am truly grateful. My training and mindset is evolving rapidly and I’ve surrounded myself with real ones only. This is the life I’ve always wanted to live. I will go all the way with this and I won’t stop. Thank you everyone! @bravemmaf
So without further adieu, here is the list of what fans would love to watch Cian Cowley fight next.
Who is next for Cian Cowley?
Abdul Abdoulraguimov: The welterweight prospect from France is a native of Dagestan, Russia, and a former national Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion. He is on a 9-fight win streak after beating the Brazilian striker Rodrigo Cavalheiro Correia in Brave 17 Pakistan. This fight will be a real test for Cian and another huge “Ireland Vs Dagestan” fight for fans to look forward to.
Indo-Canadian fighter Gurudarshan Mangat, who fights out of Tristar Gym and 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu is one of the biggest Indian names to have fought in Brave CF. If either of the fighters can make some compromise in their weights, this fight could be a treat for the fight fans in Hyderabad.
An undefeated lightweight prospect from New Zealand, Berwin gave Hardeep Rai his first professional defeat at Brave 12. This would have been a great matchup for the Irishman. But the latest reports from Brave CF confirm that Berwin is scheduled to fight Anas Siraj Mounir on the same card.
The UFC veteran from Canada made his brave CF debut in Morocco during the Brave 14 event. Jeremy has won fights against Rony Jason and Kyle Bochniak, and will be a real test for the SBG star. He is still on contract with Brave CF.
The Brazilian national is another UFC veteran who can give the Irishman a real test of his skills. He is also a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and will be a great matchup for the elite striker.
The Brave 20 event will take place at Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, on December 22nd. The event marks the return of Brave Combat Federation to India.
