Fair Fight has been Russia's best kickboxing promotion in recent years and it seems like it'll hold on to that distinction this year as well.
Nikita Kozlov, regarded as one of the best Light Heavyweights in the world, will face Matheus Nogueira.
Kozlov has most recently had his 14-fight win streak snapped by the surging Dutch prospect Thian De Vries and will look to bounce back against Nogueira, a Brazilian talent who's slowly and steadily made his name as one of South America's brighter talents in the heavier weight classes.
One of Kozlov's past opponents, the one-time GLORY Light Heavyweight title challenger Ariel Machado, will take on an Arseniy Smirnov, a former mixed martial artist who's gone a perfect 3-0 since transitioning back to kickboxing.
The third and final fight above the 90 kilogram limit, will see 40-fight veteran Mladen Kujundžić take on undefeated Ivan Petrenko.
Although Kujundžić will have a notable edge in experience over his 31-year-old opponent, Petrenko has looked picture perfect in his four victories over the past years, not to mention he's likewise had a perfect run in his two IFMA European and one World muaythai championship run.
Fans of contests in smaller MMA gloves will have a total of five fights to look forward to: Abdulmalik Mugidinov versus Ibragim Abdulmezhidov, Denis Burmatov versus Sergei Krutelev, Vladimir Tulaev versus Masoud Minaei, Patrik Záděra versus Rodion Sheremet, as well as Nikita Minin versus Dimitry Khabibullin. The first of these is perhaps the most interesting one, Abdulmezhidov has prior experience fighting in smaller gloves, while Mugidinov had a solid amateur Muay Thai career - he is a two-time IFMA World championships runner-up.
