IGF 2: Chris Barnett vs Travis Wiuff

IGF 2 takes place on August 23, 2014 in Tokyo, Japan with Satoshi Ishii versus Mirko Cro Cop headlining. A massive showdown between big men Chris Barnett and Travis Wiuff is the latest match added.


Barnett last weighed in at 317 pounds for an Island Fights bout that garnered him a 7th victory by KO. His record stands at 9-1 with a rough patch of missed bouts during 2011-12. Back on track now, the Blackzilians product now gets set for his third fight of 2014 and first ever in Japan.

Wiuff has a massive record to go with his massive height and reach: 73 wins, 18 losses. He made a name for himself in Japan already, back in the days of Sengoku against Kazuyuki Fujita, Stanislav Nedkov and King Mo. In Bellator he made it to the finals during the 2012 Summer Series Heavyweight Tournament where Attila Vegh snapped his 6-fight win streak. Post-Bellator, Wiuff was briefly linked to a match up with Sergei Kharitonov. He’s now riding 4 wins in a row.
