I'm rank 8, i dont have the tittle and i dont down any rare boss, my friend also but he have the title
WHY ? :(
I got rank 8. I changed my spec, talents, glyphed, etc... many times -- no title. Then, the next day, I defeated Zen'shar (one of the four rank 8 rares). Upon changing a talent, I was then given this title.
I'm not sure if it's R8 or R8+Rare or what, but try changing a talent. I read somewhere where a guy said he was R8 with 0 rares and changing a talent did it for him.
EDIT: After maintenance on 12/4, it seems my Brawler title is now MIA. I am R8 with 1 rare still, but I am not sure if the requirements have changed and, if so, to what. In addition, talent swapping did not give me back the title.
EDIT: Just to be sure, I contacted a GM about it. They told me that the Brawler title was originally meant to be a temporary title, one that would be reset each week to encourage players to defeat one rare a week to maintain it. This turned out to be unpopular (not surprising) and so Devs changed it to be permanent. He confirmed it is R8 + 1 Rare, but if you had your Brawler title that first week and lost it, you must defeat another rare.
This title appears to be bugged as of 12/4/2012. Myself along with several other people were awarded it before todays' maintenance and upon logging in it had been stripped. Changing talents will sometimes re-enable it but it has not for me personally.

The Brawler title is now permanent
How do you get this title ? no where says anything about that.
You get this title once you reach rank 8 and defeat one of the four rare mobs.
This title doesn't appear to be account-wide.
Brawler title is not account-wide even if you get
I got the title when I killed one r8 boss.
Got all 4 bosses on 3rd of December, there was realm-wide announcement of "<playernamehere> has earned achievement !", but the realm first FoS wont exist in the game.
I don't have the title on my alts, I am still progressing on getting rank 8 with my alt.
Will see if I get Brawler title with just getting rank 8 on alt or if I have to kill rare boss.
Edit: Even if you have the achievement
and you reach rank 8 on other char, you won't get the title.
You still need to kill 1 rare for the Brawler title.
You do in fact need to kill a rare boss in order to unlock the title. However I did need to re-log before it showed up on the list.
I know it's terrible, but I kinda hope this stops being available after MOP...if there is an after MOP.
With patch 5.3 this title is awarded for just reaching rank 8, no kills needed...no need to drive yourself crazy for it like the rest of us did.
I killed epicus maximus but died in the rain of fire while being ported out. I didnt get the title but its showing the kill in the achievements.
Being awarded this title is
buggy. If you do not receive your title immediately after defeating your first rare boss, try the following things.
1. Change a talent
2. Change a glyph
3. Change your spec (This is what worked for me in the end)
4. Log out and then back in
5. Log out and turn off all addons
6. Log out and delete your WTF, Interface and Cache folders
Steps 5/6 were what blizzard recommended me to do after I submitted a ticket about not getting my title.
If none of the above work, open a ticket and explain that you did not get your title when you should have. Hope this helps!
Aaaahhhh ha ha ha !
As of 18/11 2013 patch 5.4, this title is still NOT BoA. Incorrect information on Wowhead page.
still obtainable in season 2 of brawlers? or will it be different?
