Erlan Ulukbekov from Kyrgyzstan got injured and cannot fight on February 22nd. His compatriot Rinat Sayakbaev will replace him in the fight against Rubenilton Pereira at M-1 Challenge 88.
Rinat Sayakbaev (7-1-1) is an experienced fighter and multiple national pankration champion. “Riko” is a universal fighter, three times he finished his opponents with knockout and three times with submission. This is a great opportunity for the young athlete and he did not give it a second thought before accepting the challenge!
