Since 2011 RUFF has been searching for the best Chinese and China-based fighters to produce the first-ever China National Champions.
After seven events in four cities, the Ranik Ultimate Fighting Federation is now set to crown China’s first MMA national champions in five different weight classes at the 2013 RMB 1,000,000 Super Fight, on February 2 at Hohhot’s Inner Mongolia Indoor Stadium.
In the last 17 months, 48 fighters have competed inside the RUFF cage, and now, after 69 fights, the field has been narrowed down to 10 competitors, five of whom will walk away with RUFF’s MMA national championship belts and 1-million RMB in prize money.
The Super Fight is shaping up to be an epic night of world-class MMA, as four of the five title fights are re-matches from previous RUFF events, with the only first-time matchup featuring a pair of athletes undefeated in RUFF competition in featherweights Wang Guan and Wu ChengJie.
The last two events have seen the final elimination rounds for the top athletes aiming for a shot at the belt and a pay day of 1 million RMB. Just before Lunar New Year celebrations begin, RUFF will hold its eighth event Hohhot, Inner Mongolia and crown those final winners across five weight divisions.
RUFF has also begun a weekly broadcast of RUFF Journey, a reality show detailing the liaves of the athletes it has showcased in its events. The full broadcast schedule is now up in full on RUFF’s website here, note that all broadcasts are in China.

Flyweight – Liu PingYuan versus Zhang MeiXuan
Featherweight – Wang Guan versus Wu ChengJie
Bantamweight – Jumabieke Tuerxun versus Irshaad Sayed
Lightweight – Rodrigo Caporal versus Wu HaoTian
