Fight Code is back on May 12 in Budapest, Hungary and now the full fight card is out.
The event is headlined by the return of Alexey Ignashov, who hasn't fought since February of 2011 when he defeated Roman Kleibl. Interestingly enough, Ignashov is back at the Chinuk Gym in Belarus, where he originally came out of. His opponent is Ali Cenik, the Turkish fighter based in Holland who has fought a few times for GLORY. Cenik is a small heavyweight, much smaller than Ignashov. Ignashov is the natural heavyweight here, as Cenik wasn't really a heavyweight until 2011 when he moved up in weight very quickly. His last time out, cenik defeated Sergej Maslobojev on GLORY's March 23 card.
