KHK MMA and Bahrain will introduce the most prestigious prize in sports this November, as the KHK World championship belt, made of 6.2 kg of solid gold, and will be on the line in a one-night, four-men, open weight tournament. It will serve as the biggest attraction of an already historic BRAVE International Combat Week.
The tournament is open to athletes from all over the world, regardless if they have an ongoing agreement with another promotion or if they’re free agents.
A special committee will choose ten fighters from all the enrolled athletes and a draw will be made to determine who will be the four chosen competitors.
The signing up process is a simple one. Fighters interested in applying for a spot in the groundbreaking tournament have to apply at BRAVE Combat Federation’s official website, where they’ll be asked to provide details of their career
It will be the first time a mixed martial arts promotion organizes an open-cast tournament, with fighters from all other organizations free to join, without having to agree to any further contracts aside from the tournament bouts agreements.
The prize money for the winner is that of US$100,000, and the right to call themselves the first-ever KHK World Champion.
The belt itself is the most prestigious attraction, as its weight in gold surpasses that of the World Cup of football, as well as other huge prizes in sports, such as the Ryder Cup in golf, the Wimbledon trophy for tennis, as well as the Vince Lombardi Trophy, given to the NFL champions, and the Larry O’Brien trophy, destined for the NBA Champions.
