ROAD FC Russia Trials: MFP announces the match ups for the single night tournament
February 20, 2017 – ROAD Fighting Championship is proud to share the official match ups for the Russia Trials in MFP for the $1 Million Lightweight Tournament “Road to A-Sol”.
Modern Fighting Pankration (MFP) will host the Russia Trials for the ROAD FC $1 Million Tournament during MFP 207 “Nord Fight” on February 25 in Yakutsk, Russia. The four fighters who will be vying for seeded entry in the 16-man tournament are four Pavel Gordeev, Elnur Agaev, Herman Beryozkin, and Evgeny Lakhin.
MFP207 “Nord Fight” Кубок ИЛ ДАРХАНА Video preview:
Match 1: Pavel Gordeev vs Elnur Agaev
Pavel Gordeev (6-0, New Stream Team) is a 23-year old prospect who is undefeated in his 3 years of professional MMA. He throws big punches in order to get inside, grapple, and finish on the ground, which has earned him 4 submission finishes and 1 TKO.
Elnur Agaev (12-6, MFP Academy) made his first ROAD FC appearance against Chinese stand out Song Kenan at ROAD FC 034. In the three-round fight, Agaev showcased his technical striking and lightning takedowns. With a 50% finish rate of half submissions and KOs, Agaev is a well-rounded fighter who can take advantage in any situation.
Gordeev versus Agaev is hot prospect versus seasoned veteran. Because the winner will face a second fight in the night, Gordeev will need to find the key to his biggest opponent to date, while Agaev will need to consider an early finish rather than a technical 3-rounder.
Match 2: Herman Beryozkin vs Evgeny Lakhin
Herman Beryozkin (4-4, MFP Academy) is riding a 3-fight win streak which brings his record to even. He is a wrestler who has discovered his own hands of stone with two KOs in his last 3 fights. Beryozkin is very strong and once he has the fight on the ground he can keep it there.
Evgeny Lakhin (12-7, Club Alexander Nevsky) is a strong grappler who racked up 7 submissions and 3 KOs before his recent spate of bad fortune. He’s a counter-puncher who looks for a hole in his opponent’s guard for a big finish. Lakhin will be hungry to show the performance of his lifetime to turn around a losing streak and prove he’s worthy of a seed.
Beryozkin versus Lakhin will be full of crazy punches, but both fighters ultimately want to get it to the ground. Once there, it will become a test to see if Beryozkin’s wrestling or Lakhin’s grappling can set up the finish.
$1 Million Tournament Regional Qualifiers
The regional qualifying will yield the following seeds: China – 2, Southeast Asia – 1, Korea and international – 10, Russia – 1, and Japan – 1 for a total of 15 participants. The remaining spot will be announced at a later date.
