RUFF China MMA: Ao Hai Lin

Beijing -- RUFF Director of Talents and Athletics Brandon Resnick and Director of Fighter Relations Michael Chen recently met with UMAC (United Martial Arts Combat) coach Ao Hai Lin (敖海林), widely regarded as China’s first Mixed Martial Arts star, to talk about MMA in China.

Resnick and Chen visited Ao at UMAC’s home base, Beijing’s Brave FC, the former club of the now-renown Zhang Tie Quan (张铁泉), and several of China’s other most reputable fighters, including Bao Li Gao (宝力高) and Yang Jian Ping (杨建平).

In addition to educating some of China’s top MMA athletes about RUFF and their hopes for Chinese MMA, Resnick and Chen also signed three up-and-coming fighters: Lightweight Zhang Li Peng (张立鹏), Featherweight Wang Zhen (王震) and Bantamweight Liu Ping Yuan (刘平原); to RUFF contracts, bringing the roster for “RUFF: Genesis” up to 12 fighters and counting.

The main event is sick. I'd put my money on that Thai kid any day of the week. Yeah, Brazilians are tough, but every third one of them is...

Tie Quan straight up demolished Reinhardt with that nasty guillotine choke; boy's got skills for sure.
