The president of the Brave Combat Federation believes that Team Lakay fighter Stephen "The Sniper" Loman can do more for the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).

Brave Combat Federation president Mohammed Shahid is confident that Loman will take Philippine MMA to another level.

Shahid added that the Igorot warrior continues to prove that he is a great champion.

He called Loman the "biggest combat athlete" in the Philippines who is the same as fighting senator Manny Pacquiao.

Loman is considered the longest-reigning champion in Team Lakay on the international stage and has an MMA record of 14-2.

He won the Brave CF bantamweight title against Gurdarshan Mangat by first-round technical knockout in 2017.

Shahid mumbled it is painful to think that only a few Filipinos know about Loman's achievements in MMA.

Nevertheless, he said Loman can be considered a hero because he is a fighter that the Philippines can be proud of.

Loman is one of the Filipino warriors who will likely compete in the first Brave CF event in Sochi, Russia to be held on January 16, 2021.

Stephen Loman is a full-blooded Igorot from Ifugao and Mountain Province.

Currently a resident of Baguio City and training with Team Lakay, a Baguio-based organization of competitive sports athletes led by their coach Mark Sangiao.

He started his professional career in MMA in 2012 with an undeniable win over opponent Raffy Lim.
