RUFF Journey preview: Episode 5

on 19 December 2012 Tags: China MMA, li Jixiang, RUFF 7, Zhao Zilong, 综合搏击, 锐武

RUFF Journey episode five profiles light heavyweights Zhao ZiLong and Li JiXiang prior to their matchup at RUFF 5.

Zhao ZiLong, 32, is a former two-time national Sanda champion, who is coming out of retirement for the chance to fight for China’s first MMA national championship belt. Li JiXiang, 25, is an up-and-coming MMA fighter, who has spent years training with Zhao at Xi’An Sports University.

Zhao, whose father is sick in the hospital and who has just lost his grandmother, has told his family that he is attending RUFF 5 as a referee, but instead he is determined to recapture his former glory and win the 1-million RMB that could change his life, and the life of his parents, wife, and daughter, forever.

The youthful Li is looking to establish himself as China’s new top light heavyweight, and is set to dethrone Zhao en route to the 2013 RMB 1,000,000 Super Fight title.

Will Zhao ZiLong re-assert himself as a force to be reckoned with? Or will Li JiXiang carry the torch to represent a new generation of MMA in China?

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 5 airs next 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...

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