M-1 Global is firing up another round of live fights on your computer starting on Saturday morning at 11 a.m. Eastern.

M-1 Ukraine European Battle will feature several of the promotion’s fighters, as well as Ukrainian prospects looking to earn a contract in the Russia-based promotion.

Here is a rundown of the top four fights:


Welterweights: Yasubey Enomoto vs. Rafael Moks

Both fighters are 6-3. Enomoto just went 25 minutes with the M-1 welterweight champ, Shamil Zavurov, and he wants another shot at the title.

Moks gave up the M-1 middleweight title to drop down to 170 pounds. We’ll see if that gamble pays off. He won a fight last year with a heel hook in just 19 seconds.


Lightweights: Yuri Ivlev vs. Artiom Damkovsky

Damkovsky (8-5) is looking to bounce back from the loss of his M-1 Lightweight title to Jose Figueroa. Ivlev (16-7) will try to use his experience to leap-frog Damkovsky in the lightweight title rankings.


Welterweights: Alexander Agafonov vs. Husein Haliev

Agafonov is 2-1 in MMA competition after capturing the Pankration World title and Ukrainian Hand-to-Hand Combat championship. Haliev is a late substitution for rising German star Christian Eckerlin.


Lightweights: Antun Racic vs. Vugar Bahshiev

Racic, hailing from Croatia, is 8-2 and has been a judo black belt since he was 15. Bahshiev (5-3) is from Azerbaijan. He has racked up three wins in a row since dropping down to the lightweight division.


M-1 Ukraine European Challenge will also feature five other fights under the M-1 Ukraine banner, as well as a five-fight club challenge between Club “SK ARIS” and Club “BK Belarus.”

You can watch the fights on the M-1 Global website or Facebook page.
