Whether it was the result of extensive travel, or mounting pressures surrounding the upcoming 2013 RMB 1,000,000 Super Fight
, several fighters had difficulty making weight at the RUFF 6
RUFF matchmakers officially signed off on 11 fights for the RUFF 6
fight card, however, three bouts will be recorded as catchweights at the November 3 event, with the MMA H.E.A.T. main event
between Rodrigo Caporal
and Arthit Hanchana
being fought at 72 kg.
This is the first time RUFFF and its fighters have encountered issues with weight during the current Super Fight series, but co-main eventers Shang ZhiFa
and Liu PingYuan
were still able to reach an agreement with the promotion to compete at a catchweight of 61kg. Irshaad Sayed
and Xue GuoBin
will battle it out at 63 kg.
A fourth potential catchweight was ultimately nixed, as Ayideng Jumayi and Liu LianJie could not settle, after the latter weighed in nearly three kilos over.
The remainder of the RUFF 6
field easily made weight, with only featherweight Sandro da Silva needing a second attempt, having originally hit the scale 100 grams overweight.
