MMA Preview: RUFF 5 Fight Card Breakdown

| by

The Ranik Ultimate Fighting Federation (RUFF) has released the official fight card for the upcoming RUFF 5, set for September 8th, 2012 at Hohhot Indoor Stadium in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia.

RUFF 5, which will be co-headlined by the lightweight match up of Rodrigo Caporal versus Wu HaoTian, and the bantamweight bout of Jumabieke Tuerxun versus Jiang LongYun, will also feature eleven other fights, pitting some of China’s top MMA fighters against each other in the RUFF cage.

Rounding out the main card are a flyweight showdown between Liu PingYuan and Zhang MeiXuan, and a pair of featherweight contests that pit division kingpin Wang Guan against submission artist Yuan ChunBo, and BJJ black belt Sandro da Silva going head-to-head with Inner Mongolia’s own Zhao EriDeMuTu.

The RUFF 5 fight card also sees the return of light heavyweight Zhao ZiLong to the RUFF cage. A former two-time China national Sanda champion, ZiLong won decisively via TKO at RUFF: Genesis, and now squares off against touted striker Li JiXiang.

For the undercard, RUFF has put together a number of interesting matchups that will see Thai lightweight Arthit Hanchana going for his second victory in the RUFF cage against HasiTieer TeerJiang, and the arrival of veteran featherweight Wu ChengJie, who will make his first RUFF appearance against Dong YanJun.

Inner Mongolia natives Zhang LiPeng, a lightweight, and flyweight Amu RiJiRiGaLa are also on the card, both looking to avenge losses at RUFF 4 and regain their place in the RUFF standings prior to the 2013 RMB 1,000,000 Super Fight.
