RUFF 5 streamed live last night, which is a promising sign that the Chinese promotion sponsored by Niké and Ducati is looking to be more ambitious and attract attention from a global audience, not just catering to the native Chinese market.
In the dual main-event fights, China Top Team’s Jumabieke Tierxun knocked out Jiang Long Yun in the first round, and Rodrigo Caporal shelved his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in favour of knocking out Wu HaoTian, this finish occurring in the second round.
Look for features on China Top Team fighters to come – the camp is a solid one, and their highest profile name fights next on UFC Macau; “The Mongolian Wolf”, Tiequan Zhang, taking on PXC’s Jon Tuck from Guam.
