RUSSIA IMPERIAL TEAM SET TO BEGIN DEFENSE OF M-1 CHALLENGE TITLE THIS SATURDAY DURING “M-1 CHALLENGE

From MAT Magazine:

Amsterdam, Holland — While the name of the team may have changed from Russia Red Devil to Russia Imperial Team, the roster from the defending 2008 M-1 Challenge World Champions remain the same.

All five members of last year’s five-man championship squad are scheduled for action this Saturday at the Emerald Queen Casino (tickets currently available at Ticketmaster.com) near Tacoma, Washington during the “M-1 Challenge Presented by Affliction” (www.M1Mixfight.com) 2009 regular season opener.

The M-1 Challenge is an international team competition that bills itself as the “World Cup of Mixed Martial Arts” with 16 teams scheduled to compete in 2009. The expansion from 10 teams in 2008 to 16 in ’09 places an added importance on the regular season. One loss and the Russians will find themselves on the outside looking in when it comes to making the post-season and defending its world title.
