This interesting athlete is not only famous for his life inside the cage, but also in the acting world.
Mohammed Farhad has wide range of experience training in multiple gyms
He trains in multiple gyms in India and has his point of view when it comes to MMA in India and Bahrain. His time spent in India was at one point intertwined with the President of Brave CF Mohammad Shahid, who was also a professional fighter.
You wouldn’t imagine the vastly different professional fields of MMA and acting to share commonalities, but according to Farhad, they do. Both require time, effort and technical ability. However, he has acted in a role related to that of a martial artist. The fighter loves the cage over his film career.
Farhad is a resident of Mumbai who currently resides in Bangalore because of business and training. It has led him to become a part of three different teams. In Mumbai, he has trained with Evolution MMA headed by Jitendra Khare. For the two Brave fights, he was trained by Coach Khare as a part of team Relentless.
When Farhad is in Bangalore, Brave fighter Abdul Muneer is who he trains with for boxing. Muneer is one of the toughest fighters in India who has strong striking skills as well as experience. For grappling, however, he trains in the Institute of Jiu-Jitsu (IJJ) in Bangalore, led by Rohit Vasudevan.
Mohammad Farhad is the latest fighter to sign with MTK MMA, a professional fighter management based out of the UK which includes many big names like Darren Till and Alex Silva.
A veteran of the truly global organization since its very first event, back in 2016, Mumbai’s Mohammed Farhad extended his agreement with BRAVE CF and commented on the new deal.
“I’m signing a new deal with BRAVE Combat Federation”, he said. “I’m very happy with this opportunity and I’d like to thank His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Hamad Al Khalifa for giving us this platform and I want to ensure to all MMA fans that I will give my full dedication and leave the best performances inside the cage. I am BRAVE”. (H/T – BRAVE CF) c
A knockout artist with an extensive striking background, Farhad holds a professional record of 11 wins and only three losses. All of his three wins under BRAVE Combat Federation’s banner came by way of knockout or technical knockout.
The last time “Sher-e-Hind” stepped into the BRAVE CF Arena, he beat Kushal Vyas via first-round TKO in his home country of India, back in November of 2019.
The promotion’s officials have not confirmed the date or event for Farhad’s next bout but the Indian superstar is expected to make his return before the end of 2020.
He is surely the fighter to watch out for in the future. We are excited to see his journey ahead. The MMA India Show wishes Mohammed Farhad good luck on his future endeavours.
