Featherweight contender Gabriel “Fly” Miranda will look to go back to the win column in his next bout. And he has a date and opponent set, as he will take on Jhon Zarate in the co-main event of BRAVE 26, on September 7th. The event will mark the first time the fastest-growing MMA organization in the world will host a show in Bogota, Colombia.
Gabriel has two bouts for BRAVE CF to date, with a win against Fernando Noriega at BRAVE 15, and a loss to Akhmed Magomedov, back in December of last year, at BRAVE 21, in Saudi Arabia. “Fly” is a submission specialist, and the jiu-jitsu black belt has finished all of his 13 professional victories, submitting his opponents in 12 of those 13 wins.

Aside from a surging professional career, family man Gabriel is also a jiu-jitsu teacher and one of the main sparring partners for BRAVE Lightweight world champion Luan “Miau” Santiago at the world-famous CM System gym, in Curitiba, Brazil.
He will look to bounce back from his loss to Magomedov against the self-proclaimed most hated fighter in Colombia. The subject of a Fightland VICE documentary, Jhon “The Problem” Zarate is known for his no-nonsense style and willingness to go toe-to-toe with his opponents. Zarate was born in Medellin, but spent most of his formative years in Brooklyn, New York, and represents Bareknuckle gym.
BRAVE 26 will be headlined by a Lightweight bout of epic proportions as veteran Felipe Silva makes his much-anticipated promotional debut against top prospect Guram Kutateladze. The entire fight card for BRAVE’s debut in Bogota will be announced in the coming days.
