Ranik Ultimate Fighting Federation weigh ins took place today, May 17th, at the Sanya MGM Grand in Hainan, China. All but two fighters made weight, and all matches were agreed to move forward in tomorrow’s ninth event.

Once again China’s young up-and-comers will be able to be watched across China and all over the world live from the “Hawaii of the East”. The live stream and broadcast details can be found on the RUFF website here. Today’s even lead ups were a work out demonstration on the beach with Xi’an team coach Vaughn Anderson, RUFF National Champions Wang Guan and Zhang Meixuan, and Xinjiang provincial sanda champ Habidi.
