Bahrain-based BRAVE Combat Federation continues to make big strides, and it appears the promotion has one set for November.

After starting the year with BRAVE CF 46 in Russia, the organization has announced that it will hold its return event to the country--BRAVE CF 55-- on November 6 in association with local organization Pro FC.

Details remain scarce although it was confirmed to be happening in Rostov On Don, a city located in the Southern part of the nation which served as one of the sites of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The protagonists that will do battle at BRAVE CF 55 have yet to be announced. But this early, there is reason to believe that top names will grace the card.

There are several top fighters from Russia under the BRAVE CF umbrella to expect. That list includes reigning super lightweight champion Eldar Eldarov, Ali Bagautinov, Roman Bogatov, Kasum Kasumov, Ikram Aliskerov, Alexander Keshtov, Velimurad Alkhasov and Gamzat Magomedov, among others.

More details should emerge in the coming weeks.

The outfit recently wrapped up BRAVE CF 54, which was headlined by the Ahmed Amir vs. Amin Ayoub grudge match. The former won via unanimous decision to snag the lightweight championship.
