RUFF III: The Fight Card

(From, the official website of China’s most ambitious promotion)

The Ranik Ultimate Fighting Federation (RUFF) has released the official fight card for the upcoming RUFF 3, set for March 24th, 2012 at Chongqing Indoor Stadium.

RUFF 3, which will be co-headlined by the lightweight match up of Zhang LiPeng vs. Rodrigo Caporal and the bantamweight bout of Jumabieke Tuerxun vs. Irshaad Sayed, will also feature seven other fights, pitting some of China’s top MMA fighters against each other in the RUFF cage.

RUFF veteran Wang Guan, who currently holds a 2-0 record inside the cage, will be dropping down to featherweight to do battle with newcomer Jiang ZhouWen, while Xi’An Sports University’s Xue GuoBin, who suffered a shocking last second defeat at RUFF 2, is looking for his first victory inside the cage, and will square off against a highly-touted Jiu Jitsu specialist in Ji Xian, who will be making his first appearance in a RUFF promotion.

The RUFF 3 fight card, RUFF’s strongest card to date, also includes an interesting striker vs. grappler battle at 61kg, where Xi’An’s Ayideng Jumayi will go head-to-head against China Top Team’s Amu RiJiRiGaLa, who goes into RUFF 3 with a 2-0 record inside the cage.

For the undercard, RUFF has put together a handful of interesting matchups that will see the return of now-featherweight Ta Yier to the cage. Coming off a decisive submission loss to Zhang LiPeng at RUFF: Genesis, Ta Yier will square off against Li BoLin, who came from behind to earn his first MMA victory at RUFF 2.
