on 14 December 2012 Tags: China MMA, RUFF 5, RUFF China, RUFF Journey, 综合搏击

The fourth episode of RUFF Journey focuses on flyweights Shang ZhiFa and Liu LianJie
ahead of their matchup at RUFF 5.

Watch, as Sanda-turned-MMA fighter Shang
ZhiFa, 27, prepares for his fight with Liu LianJie, 24, an athlete who began as
a traditional Kung Fu practitioner before finding MMA in China.Shang ZhiFa hails from Harbin, Heilongjiang
Province. The youngest of four children, he began training MMA in 2010 at the
suggestion of his friend, RUFF featherweight Wu ChengJie. Now with his eyes on
the flyweight crown, Shang takes motivation and inspiration from his mentor and
coach, RUFF bantamweight and China MMA veteran Jiang LongYun.

 

Liu LianJie, a Jiangsu Province native, is
equally hungry for a chance to fight at the 2013 RMB 1,000,000 Super Fight, and
is dropping down to flyweight to face Shang, convinced that he will have a
strength and size advantage in the lighter division. Faced with a difficult
weight cut, Liu LianJie is not even certain if he will make it in the cage.

Witness as these two Chinese MMA fighters compete for glory inside the RUFF cage. Experience
their lives, their stories, and their journey.

RUFF Journey episode 4 airs this week across China.

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...
