Lucas “Mineiro” Martins and Marcel Grabinski were supposed to meet inside the BRAVE CF arena in Belarus, back in June, but a health scare for the German star caused the cancelation of the bout only a few minutes before the athletes’ walkout.
After all the turbulence, Martins and Grabinski are set to finally settle their differences. BRAVE CF officials have confirmed that Martins vs Grabinski will be a 3-round, featured lightweight bout.
In the aftermath of the surprising withdrawal in Belarus, Martins and Grabinski have engaged in a war of words via their social media, demanding the rescheduled bout at the nearest date possible, and now it has been confirmed.
BRAVE CF 53 will take place on August 21st, in Almaty, Kazakhstan, and represents the second visit of the truly global MMA promotion to the Central Asian country. The main event of the evening, promoted in association with Octagon League, is still yet to be confirmed but we can guarantee it will be an eye-opener.
As always, all BRAVE CF events are available live and free worldwide on the BRAVE CF TV website.
