Brave Combat Federation has confirmed that Lenne Hardt, affectionately known as the “crazy PRIDE lady” will be part of the broadcast talent and will make her special appearance at Brave 18 taking place on November 16 in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Hardt is a long-time ring announcer, known for her rolling and exuberant fighter introductions. She made her entry into mixed martial arts at the 2000 PRIDE Grand Prix, and her first glimpse of the sport came from behind a microphone while watching Kazushi Sakuraba, Igor Vovchanchyn, and Mark Coleman scrap with blue gloves.
She was a fixture of PRIDE until 2007, her voice cutting through applause from tens of thousands inside the Saitama Super Arena.
Brave 18 will be hosted during Brave International Combat Week 2018 which marks the largest Combat Sports Festival ever held in Asia.
