Ylies Djiroun, a seasoned warrior of the BRAVE Combat Federation, is making a sensational return to the cage on May 11 at BRAVE CF 82. This time, he faces Ananias Mulumba, a formidable newcomer from DR Congo, in what promises to be a thrilling match-up.

In a daring move, Djiroun, a staple in the Lightweight division, is dropping down to Featherweight. This significant change signals a fresh chapter and a quest for redemption for the French MMA icon.

Since his debut at BRAVE CF 48 in 2021, Djiroun has rapidly become a prominent figure within the organization. His journey reached a peak at BRAVE CF 74 in Nantes, France, where he headlined the event, although it ended in a dramatic first-round knockout loss to Lucas Martins.

Determined to turn the tide, Djiroun stepped back into the regional fighting scene, where he clinched two consecutive victories. Now, with renewed vigor, he's set to reclaim his status in the BRAVE CF ranks.

The stakes are incredibly high in this upcoming bout, as a victory is crucial for securing his place in the upcoming BRAVE event in France later this year, part of the 2024 European Tour.

This fight isn't just a return; it's a chance for Djiroun to rewrite his story in front of an international audience.

BRAVE CF 82 is also set to be a landmark event, as it will be hosted in Mauritius, marking the organization's first venture into this exotic locale and its fourth event on the African continent.

With eight more events lined up for 2024, including a much-anticipated return to France, the stage is set for Djiroun to prove his mettle and win back the hearts of his home crowd.
