FLYWEIGHT contender Hussain Ayyad will be carrying the flag of Bahrain at Brave CF 29 as he takes on Latvia’s Matis Zaharovs on November 15 in front of his own crowd at Khalifa Sports City in Isa Town.
However, during the week he will keep a watchful eye on the progress of Team Bahrain at the IMMAF World Championships to be held from Sunday to November 16 during Brave International Combat Week.
A product of the IMMAF amateur system, Ayyad stressed the importance of having amateur experience before making it to the professional leagues and wished success to all competitors, especially from Team Bahrain.
“The rules for amateur MMA are different so they allow you to get experience that’s very useful in your professional career. I was fighting two years ago at the IMMAF World Championships right here in Bahrain and now I am fighting for Brave CF in the biggest event yet,” said Ayyad.
“So it’s a very good platform to showcase your talents and I wish nothing but success to the competitors, and I’ll be cheering Team Bahrain for sure.”
Ayyad had a tentative start to his Brave CF career but is currently riding a three-fight win streak and hopes another victory next Friday can get him one step closer to a title shot.
