American featherweight Daniel Swain (18-9-1) comes back to China to get his second victory in M-1 Global. Last year's Agent Orange fought the local star in the main event of the show and finished him with a beautiful kneebar in the very first round. A few months later Swain suffered a defeat when Viktor Kolesnik broke his leg with low kicks, but now Daniel is healthy and ready to step into the Rage once again!
Ukrainian Maxim Pashkov (13-5) is a great finisher, he has 13 victories in his professional record and 13 times he has finished his opponents. Ukrainian pankration champion, 11-times won by the way of submission and twice by knockouts, so he is a very dangerous fighter. In China he'll do his best to extend his winning streak to eight fights!
The catchweight bout will open the show in China on January 26th!
