Report: Stephen Loman set to defend title at home in the Philippines at Brave 22

Brave Combat Federation’s Stephen Loman is set to defend his bantamweight world championship in his home country.

“The Sniper” will be the main event of Brave 22, which takes place at The Mall of Asia Arena, in Manila, Philippines, on March 15th. His opponent will be announced in the coming weeks.

Loman is the longest-reigning Brave champion after winning his belt at Brave 9 back in November of 2017. Since then, the Filipino hero has made history by becoming the first-ever Brave CF titleholder to defend his crown on two occasions.

In June of last year, he went to Northern Ireland to face top contender Frans Mlambo and dominated his rival throughout five rounds to win a unanimous decision, beating Mlambo in front of his teammate Conor McGregor.

Five months later at Brave 18, he once again dominated his foe, out-striking Brazil’s Felipe Efrain in the co-main event to receive his third belt.
