Grand opening of brand new M-1 Arena in Saint-Petersburg, Russia will happen on February 9th!

28 December 2017

The main event of M-1 Challenge 87 will be the fight for interim flyweight championship belt between Arman Ashimov of Kazakhstan and Mikael Silander of Finland!

Since the undisputed M-1 Challenge flyweight champion Aleksander Doskalchuk is injured and can’t fight for another half a year, the winner of this fight will be the interim champion and will receive an opportunity to fight Doskalchuk as soon as he is ready to come back to the Rage.
 
Mikael Silander made his debut in promotion last August in front of his fans in Finland and demonstrated everybody that he is ready for real battles by defeating a strong opponent Vitaliy Branchuk.
 
Arman Ashimov is a flyweight phenomenon who knocks out his opponents one after another. His fights are being broadcasted on national TV of Kazakhstan and the videos on YouTube have hundreds of thousands views, what makes him extremely motivated for the next battles!
 
It’s going to be an excellent main event for M-1 Challenge 87!
