The main event for RUFF Fu will showcase two of the best up and coming fighters in Asia, Song Yadong (3-0-0-1) and Zhao Yafei (4-3). Song Yadong, though new to the sport, is undefeated and has proven himself victorious against experienced and challenging competitors. His opponent, Zhao yafei, has similarly faced top competitors since the start of his career. Yafei improves his game with each fight, as evidenced by his 2-fight win streak, both of which were finishes. The winners of this fight could see themselves in a fight for the vacant Bantamweight championship.
The co-main event will feature the 2013 featherweight superfight champion, Wang Guan (13-1-1), who has only lost once in his career and is coming off of a first round knockout victory at RUFF 12. He will face the sanda and Sambo fighter Aliyar Sarkerov (6-3).
