Shorty Torres now looking to become the main face of Brave Combat Federation by winning the Brave CF Flyweight Tournament.

First opponent in the Brave CF Flyweight Tournament was a rematch against Sean Santella. Unfortunately Santella is injured and now Blaine O’ Driscoll replaces.

O’ Driscoll SBG Ireland Prospect, Bellator fighter now with Brave CF. Former WWFC Flyweight Champion. 9-3 record. Definitely one of toughest fights in Shorty Torres career but Jose is one of the best flyweights in the world.

“It sucks having a last-minute opponent change but this is something I’m used to, especially fighting in the amateurs in the IMMAF you fight five times in six days. You don’t find out your next opponent until the day of. This is a completely different mix up with O’Driscoll cause he’s a stand up fighter. He’s Irish. I know he’s tough. He’s had three fights in Bellator and he’s a game opponent. It’s seven or eight days’ notice and he took the fight against me. He’s doing this for the great opportunity and I’m just excited to meet him in general.”

Roberto Soldic #1 Welterweight Prospect in the World. If your a hardcore fan like myself you know who he is already. Soldic be known to regular fans, Increased interest by UFC or Bellator needs tougher fights. Nordine Taleb can be one of those options.

Nordine Taleb ex UFC Fighter had a 11-3 record with the UFC but sadly parted ways with the UFC and signed with ARES FC( MMA Promotion in Africa).

Since Taleb isn’t fighting for UFC anymore, I’m sure ARES FC Promoter and executives will allow Talel to travel to Europe and fight Top Europe Welterweights.

Yaroslav Amosov is a fighter fans aren’t talking about but he’s an silent assassin. Toughest fight in Ed Ruth’s Bellator career but Ed Ruth is a potential Bellator Welterweight Champion and consistently has been improving since his Bellator debut back in 2016.

Aung LA Nsang vs Volkan Oezdemir One Championship Title Fight 2020

Aung La Nsang I believe is the best Light Heavyweight not in the UFC since Jiri Prochazka signed with the UFC. Love to see Aung fight tougher competition, Volkan Ozdemir is a world class Light Heavyweight and I don’t see him winning a UFC Title anytime soon.

MMA Free Agency is real and Volkan should take advantage of it. Volkan when his deal with the UFC is done should sign with One Championship #2 MMA Promotion.

One Championship debut fight for Volkan should be right for the One Light Heavyweight Title fighting Aung La Nsang the STAR of One Championship.

Main Event Fight in a event in the Chase Center(Golden State Warriors new arena).
