RUFF 12 Fight Card Release
Ranik Ultimate Fighting Federation is returning to Hongkou Indoor Stadium in Shanghai, China on March 29 for RUFF 12. RUFF continues to expand its roster and in return, develop the fighters, the organization and Chinese MMA. RUFF 12 will play host to new fighters from around the world, including Russia, Philippines, and Mongolia as well as a new batch of local Chinese fighters.
Headlining the much-anticipated RUFF 12 event is the technical and illusive Lu Zhenhong (7-2), who will be facing off against powerful RUFF newcomer Azamat Gashimov (11-3). Lu Zhenhong is coming off of a remarkable 5-fight win streak, three of which were stoppages. Azamat’s record is no less impressive: though he recently had 2 hard-fought losses in the UFC against highly ranked fighters, he wants to prove that he is still one of the top Bantamweights weight coming out of Russia.
In the Co-main event of the evening, the 2012 Chinese National Featherweight Champion Wang Guan (12-1-1) will try to put himself back in the winner’s circle and prove that he is still one of the best featherweights in the region. However, he will have to get by experienced Muay Thai fighter Jerson P Estoro (5-2), who is looking to make a name for himself inside the RUFF cage.
Also on the main card, and coming off of an impressive win over 2012 Flyweight champ Zhang Meixuan, is Amu RiJiRiGaLa (10-3). Amu will put his 3-fight submission win streak on the line against Mongolian RUFF newcomer Danaa Batgerel (4-1).
The evening will also feature two fighters seeking to prove that they are at the top of the Bantomweight division, as young up-and-comer Song Yadong (2-0) looks to stay undefeated against the talented and also undefeated Sambo fighter Baasankhuu Damlanpurev (7-0). Starting off the main card will be a lightweight match between the powerful grappler Wu Haotian (17-5-1) and the hard-hitting Kuat Khamitov (6-3).
The undercard will showcase 6 exciting fights to start off the night, including a bantamweight battle between Zhao Yafei and Galindez Ereneo JR.Odayao. The event will begin with Yang Jianbing vs. Yuan Ye, and will also include the exciting matches of WulaliBieke Baheibieke vs. Otgontulga Rentsen, Shang Zhifa vs. Shamil Magomedov, He Nannan vs. WuLiJiBuren, and Alateng Heili vs. Tom Ni.
