M-1 Challenge entering its sophomore season (FROM SHERDOG)

FROM SHERDOG.COM:

The M-1 Challenge — M-1 Global’s vehicle to breed and discover up-and-coming talent from around the globe — will kick off its second season on Feb. 21 in Seattle with battles between USA Team West and Brazil Naja, Fedor Emelianenko’s Imperial Team and Korea, as well as Finland vs. Benelux. Adding a third team challenge per event is one of the changes made to the format of the series.

The other reform for the new season concerns the participating teams: Joining France, Korea, Japan, the Russian Legion, Spain, the United States and the World Team, which were already featured on the first season, are now squads from the Benelux, Brazil, Bulgaria, Germany, Turkey and the U.K. The Red Devil Fighting Team will be replaced by Fedor Emelianenko’s Imperial Team.

Besides Seattle, the event series will have stops in Sofia, Bulgaria; Tokyo, Japan; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Kansas City, Mo.; Seoul, Korea; as well as Spain and England. Three of the most interesting fighters who are taking part in the Feb. 21 event are Finland’s Lucio Linhares, Russia’s Alexey Oleinik and Brazil’s Jair Sorriso.
