In his last three fights, Stephen Loman, the Brave CF Bantamweight Champion, fought away from home.

Just like every Filipino, it was always his dream to fight in his own country.

After three years, the young Team Lakay fighter will get his wish granted. He is set to defend his championship in the main event of Brave 22: The Storm of Warriors on Friday, March 15 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

“I am very happy that Brave is finally coming to the Philippines. I can’t wait to put on a show for the fans here and around the world, since the fight is going to be available all over,” shared Loman, who last fought in the Philippines back in PXC 53 that happened back on April 8, 2016.

Loman, who owns a 12-2 record, will need all the help he can get for this title defense. Standing in his way is ex-Brave Featherweight champ Elias Boudegzdame (15-5).

Though Loman has the homecourt advantage, the young fighter out of Baguio is wary about his opponent’s skill set. But for sure, he and the rest of Lakay have something in store for the French fighter.

“He’s still a champion, in my eyes.

“He fought and beat some of the top guys at his previous division. He’s not an easy fighter to deal with, because he has a good striking game and his jiu-jitsu is top class,” Loman admitted.

Moreover, he plans to put on a show in his homecoming.

“I am very happy about that, as I have proudly represented my country in other areas and I will fight now in front of my fans. I’m really thankful for Brave because they focus on us, the fighters, and I’ve been able to represent my country in other places because of that.”
