RUFF cuts Niu, welterweight out of contention for Super Fight

Alex Niu RUFF China MMA Super FightJust two days after announcing the 2013 Super Fight, the million RMB bout to crown China’s first MMA national champions, RUFF has decided to part ways with welterweight Alex Niu.

Citing their frequent inability to contact the Thailand-based fighter, RUFF has officially cut Niu from the promotion, stating that he will not be a part of the upcoming 2012 season and the ensuing Super Fight.

Niu, who originally signed with RUFF in February 2011, was poised to become a staple of the Shanghai-based promotion, even participating in RUFF’s kick-off press conference in December 2010, but his reclusive nature and failure to respond to RUFF’s matchmakers have ultimately ended the relationship.

Unavailable for comment, Niu is rumored to be in Thailand at the moment, although his whereabouts are unconfirmed.

The main event is sick. I'd put my money on that Thai kid any day of the week. Yeah, Brazilians are tough, but every third one of them is...

Tie Quan straight up demolished Reinhardt with that nasty guillotine choke; boy's got skills for sure.
