M1 38 on 9th April to feature Title Fight, Heavyweight GP

The M1 card in just over 2 weeks is looking awesome!

Features include a Middleweight Title fight between defending champion Ramazan Emeev (9-2) and UFC veteran Mario Miranda (14-5); the much anticipated MMA debut of 4X Sanda world champion Islam Makhachev; unbeaten fighters Murad Abdulaev (11-0), Pavel Vitruk (9-0) & Islam Makhachev (7-0).

On top of this, one of the highlights of the night will be the first round of the 2013 Heavyweight grand prix, featuring:

- Kenny Garner (12-3) - Defending M1 Heavyweight Champion, riding a 7 fight win streak including a couple of stoppage wins over the previously unbeaten Guram Gugenishvili
- Alexei Kudin (14-5) - Former pro kickboxer with 17-7 record in the sport, former WBKF World Champion, Bellator veteran, has won 13 of his last 15 fights
- Komstantin Gluhov (24-12) - Former pro kickboxer with 29-11 record, former WPKA World Champion, Finished 22 of his 24 wins
- Nikita Krylov (13-0) - Has finished all 13 fights in less than 3 minutes, youngest competing at 20 years old
- Denis Smoldarev (4-0) - The biggest heavyweight competing at 6'5" 260 pounds and second youngest at 22 years old, has drawn comparisons to Brock Lesnar
- Magomed Malikov (6-2) - Knocked out Alex Emelianenko in 23 seconds in 2010 & also holds TKO win over Alexey Oleinik
- Chaban Ka (5-1) - Drew with Jeff Monson in 2012, coming off a win over Haris Reiz (8-1)
- Ibragim Ibragimov (4-1) - Finished each of his wins in the first round, knocked out 'baby Fedor' Kiril Sidelnikov in his debut

The full card is below:

Ramazan Emeev (9-2) vs. Mario Miranda (14-5) - Middleweight Title
Kenny Garner (12-3) vs. Konstantin Gluhov (24-12) - Heavyweight GP Quarter Final
Alexei Kudin (14-5) vs. Chaban Ka (5-1) - Heavyweight GP Quarter Final

Alexey Prokofiev (12-4) vs. Gregory Babene (15-10)
