MANILA, Philippines—Filipino mixed martial arts fighter Jenel Lausa is set to return to active competition after signing a multi-bout deal with BRAVE CF.

The 32-year-old flyweight was once a Pacfic Xtreme Combat flyweight champion, winning the title when he defeated Team Lakay’s Crisanto Pitpitunge in 2016 before he was signed into the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

He had a strong debut in the UFC with a victory over China’s Yao Zhikui but lost his next three bouts including one against Yuta Sasaki in June 2018.

“Coming back to mixed martial arts is really something that I look forward to. I am very grateful for this opportunity, and I value the trust that BRAVE CF has given me,” said Lausa who holds a 7-5 MMA record.

Apart from MMA, Lausa was also a professional boxer. His last bout was a knockout win over Carlos Lopez in September 2019 to push him to a 10-0-1 record.
