For one of the most dangerous lightweights on the M-1 Global roster 2018 was definitely not the most successful year. Georgian puncher Raul Tutarauli (18-5) first was defeated by the champion Damir Ismagulov in the title fight and later was choked out by the future champion Roman Bogatov. These two gave Raul loses extra motivation, so he has been training harder than ever for this fight and he is ready to prove that he still has insane KO power in his hands.
Outstanding striker from Cuba Yoislandy Izquierdo (12-4) won his M-1 Global contract at the "Road to M-1: USA” show last year, when he knocked his opponent out with a head kick. Izquierdo''s striking looks fantastic, he always throws a lot of kicks and knees and nine times in professional career he won by knockout.
The former lightweight challenger will face the UFC veteran and M-1 Global debutant on January 26th in China!
