China VS The World: Local Heroes Victorious - Rebel Fighting Championship

REBEL FC 6 – China VS The World on 2 September 2017 at the Shenzhen Stadium in China was a huge hit with a near capacity crowd. All the local Chinese fighters in the top-billed bouts of the night came through their challenges against menacing illustrious international fighters with flying colours.

Tang Kai went up against SAFC Featherweight Champion from the Philippines, Mark Valerio. Both were not hesitant in going for the win, putting on an exciting display of punching and kicking combinations before Tang Kai floored Mark with a crunching kick to the head in the second round.

Liu Wenbo, who first fought for REBEL FC in REBEL FC 3: The Promised Ones in June 2015, returned for ‘China VS The World’, and literally butted heads with American MMA legend, Shannon “The Cannon” Ritch. Both of them had the audience in awe in the first minute of their bout when they ‘embraced’ and punched each other continuously without any attempt at defending, such is their determination to knock each other out with sheer strength.

After that intense start, the fight went to the canvas and after a sustained spell of ground and pound by Shannon, opened a bloody gash above Liu’s left eye. However, a resilient Liu turned things around by rolling under Shannon and flipping him onto the mat. Now, Liu became the hunter and he duly won by TKO with seconds left to go in the first round.

In the main event of Fight Night, Ayideng Jumayi, the top-ranked Bantamweight fighter in China, clashed with Chris Morris of Australia in their bid to be the winner of REBEL FC’s inaugural Bantamweight championship belt. Ayideng met his match in Chris, who is UCU Australian MMA Champion and FWC Australian MMA Champion. It was a bout that is unpredictable as it is thrilling. Both fighters took turns to attack and defend with an array of kicks, punches and takedowns. Neither of them was willing to give in and kept plugging away until Ayideng won by a unanimous decision after five tough and exhausting rounds. Truly an epic matchup for the ages when the dust has settled.

There was also a special showcase featuring a Wing Chun exponent, Li Zihao and Muay Thai specialist Liu Wei. Both local heroes did their respective disciplines proud. Liu attempted to knock Li out with a few powerful flying knees and elbows but Li absorbed them well and parried a few others before delivering a coup de grace when he caught Liu’s right leg and flung him to the ground in the second round. Li immediately showed his versatility by submitting Liu with a rear naked choke.
