Chad Hanekom started off his career with BRAVE CF with a disappointing decision loss but has since bounced back with two stellar performances to position himself as a top contender in the Middleweight division. On December 7th, he will have the chance to make history by becoming the first-ever BRAVE Combat Federation world champion at 185lbs, when he meets Daniel Gaucho in the main event of BRAVE CF 31.
“Superman” Hanekom currently has a respectable record of six wins against only one defeat. One of the division’s toughest fighters, he hasn’t been finished and is riding a two-fight win streak, submitting Dominic McConnell at BRAVE CF 13, and then following up with the domination of Leon Aliu at BRAVE CF 16. Although Chad has yet to fight this year, he doesn’t believe ring-rust will be an issue.
