Ex-Rizin and Titan FC Felipe Efrain signs with Brave; faces Walel Watson in Curitiba
A last minute addition has changed the shape of the upcoming Brave 3 fight card, scheduled for March 18th in Curitiba, Brazil. Former Rizin FF and Titan FC contender Felipe Efrain signed a multi-fight deal with Brave CF and will make a short-notice debut against Walel Watson.
Walel was already scheduled to fight at Brave 3. He was supposed to face Curitiba’s Diego Marlon. The match was cancelled due to undisclosed reasons. Diego will remain part of the card and his new opponent will be announced soon, Brave has informed.
Fighting out of São Paulo, with his training camp at Chute Boxe-Diego Lima alongside names like Lucas Mineiro, Thomas Almeida, and Charles Oliveira, Felipe Efrain has a professional record of 10 wins, 2 losses, and a no contest. In 2015, Efrain faced Tim Elliot for Titan FC’s flyweight title and, right after, went to Japan, where he beat Yuki Montoya at Rizin FF’s inaugural card.
Brave 3: Battle in Brazil is scheduled for March 18th, at the Max Rosenmann Arena, in São José dos Pinhais, Curitiba Metropolitan Area. The main event of the evening will put face to face the long-time rivals Lucas “Mineiro” Martins and Paulo “Bananada” Gonçalves, in a 5-round featherweight bout.
