TEAM Lakay's Stephen Loman defends his Brave Combat Federation bantamweight world title later this month as Bahrain's first mixed martial arts promotion returning to India.

Loman, who defended his title in March 15 earlier this year, squares off against Louie Sanoudakis in the main event of Brave CF 30, which will take place in Hyderabad, India, on November 23.

Despite the seven-month lay-off, Loman said he has been keeping his conditioning in check as he continuously trains with his brothers at Team Lakay.

"Tuloy-tuloy and training, hindi huminto," said Loman.

The Filipino standout has been setting record after record since joining Brave, winning five bouts in as many fights under the organization's banner, including his debut bout, back at Brave CF 1: Beginning.

Loman defeated Gurdarshan Mangat in November 2017 to become the first world champion in Brave CF's bantamweight division and has defended his crown three times.

With a 12-1 win loss record, Loman has won his last seven bouts that include two knock outs since losing to Rex de Lara in January 2016.

Loman is seen to face his biggest challenge to date against Sanoudakis, one of Canada's top bantamweight fighters.

Sanoudakis is currently on a three-fight win streak edging Terry Bartholomew, including two dominant wins for Brave CF, beating Nawaras Abzakh and James Brum in his two outings.

Brave CF 30 marks the third time the fastest growing organization in the world lands in India after two smashing hits with Brave CF 5 and Brave CF 20 catapulting the promotion to the top of sports organizations in the country. (Roderick Osis)
