RUFF Fu will be the thirteenth card put together by the Chinese promotion and will feature 12 fights with a bantamweight match-up between Song Yadong and Zhao Yafei to headline the event at the Hongkou Indoor Stadium in Shanghai on June 7.
Yadong (3-0-0-1) is a relative newcomer to the sport who made his professional debut less than a year ago and is currently riding a three-fight winning streak. Yafei (3-2) bounced back from two consecutive defeats, including a notable DQ loss to former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver, to win his last two.
In the co-main event, Wang Guan (13-1-1) will be looking for a second successive win after knocking out Filipino Jerson Estoro in the opening round of RUFF 12 in March. This will be the third straight RUFF card the Chinese featherweight has featured on and this time he is going up against Russian Sambo specialist Aliyar Sarkerov (7-3).
Reigning flyweight champion Zhang Meixuan (6-2) recently saw a four-fight win streak snapped by a rematch loss to Rijirigala Amu and he will be returning to the cage for another rematch, this time against his RUFF 7 opponent Shang Zhifa (4-4)
A number of cast members from the recent TUF: China show are making their RUFF debuts on June 7, including He Jianwei (0-0), who faces Lu Zhenhong (5-2) in a bantamweight match-up, and Zhu Qingxiang (0-0), who is taking on Kazakhstan’s Kuat Khamitov (9-3-1) at 155 pounds.
