RUFF 12 Results: Gashimov, Guan and Khamitov pick up victories

Kuat Khamitov

The Ranik Ultimate Fighting Federation (RUFF) held its twelfth event on Saturday night at the Hongkou Indoor Stadium in Shanghai, China.

The main event featured a mouth-watering clash between former UFC veteran Azamat Gashimov, and rising Chinese starlet, Lu ZhenHong. Gashimov’s experience, in the end, proved too much for ZhenHong to handle, as the Russian swept the judges’ scorecards for a Unanimous Decision victory.

With the win, Gashimov snapped a two-fight losing skid, and is now 3-2 in his past five outings.

In the co-main event, RUFF champ Wang Guan also returned to the win column after demolishing the Philippines’ Jerson Estoro via knockout in the first round.

Elsewhere on the main card, China Top Team’s Amu Rijirigala dropped another submission defeat, this time at the hands of former Legend FC staple, Danaa Batgerel. Rijirigala was considered the favorite heading into that tilt but it was not to be, as Betgerel pulled off a beautifully crafted Rear-Naked Choke submission in the second round.

Phuket Top Team’s Kuat Khamitov was also one of the winners on the night as he scored a first round TKO triumph over HaoTian Wu.
