If you like ring events such as Pride or M-1 thenProfessional Fighting Championship’s April 1st event looks interesting. ProFC 40 takes place at the Sport Palace inVolgograd, Russia with a $14.99 pay-per-view webstream on GoFightLive.tv.
The main event is very interesting despite the lack of recognition of ShamilAbdurahimov and Jerry Otto to most fans. 12-2 Abdurahimov is coming off a loss to Tony Lopez in December butholds wins over Jeff Monson and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, all of whom fansshould know. Otto at 2-1 is much lessexperienced but is arguably Germany’s top heavyweight prospect with a TKO ofSander Duyvis being his most recent fight.
In the co-main event 22-11 Fabricio Nascimento takes on 19-5 Beslan Isaev. Isaev’s loss to Assan Njie last April snappeda ten-fight win streak however Isaev bounced back with two wins in the secondhalf of 2011, most recently scoring a rear-naked choke over Yedike Abelian inProFC 37. Nascimento is known for hissubmission game with 16 of his 22 wins coming by such. Nascimento didn’t fight in 2010 and onlytwice in 2011, both losses.
