M-1 Challenge XXVI Trailer: Guram Gugenishvili Makes U.S. Debut

Lock your doors. Put away the wife and kids. Guram is coming!!!

MMA's hottest heavyweight prospect (BloodyElbow.com) Guram Gugenishvili will make his U.S. debut at M-1 Challenge 26 where he will defend his M-1 Global Heavyweight Title against Pat Bennett, an M-1/Bellator veteran. The Ukrainian fighter might be the biggest threat out of Eastern Europe since the Cold War. Undefeated at 11-0, Gugenishvili could follow the legacy of Fedor Emelianenko, who many expect to retire soon.

The card also features a lightweight title affair between current M-1 lightweight titleholder Jose Figueroa and Daniel Weichel. Figuerao is perhaps most well-known for his gigantic 6'3" frame, monstrous for a lightweight. The challenger, Weichel, holds an impressive 26-7 record with a notable win over UFC lightweight Dennis Siver.
