Roman Mailov replaces Houcine Bennoui, faces Yuta Kubo at Krush GP 2013

  • Written by Rian Scalia

Krush.26 features an eight man, one night tournament in Krush's debuting 67kg division. Originally there were two foreign fighters, Houcine Bennoui and Abdallah Ezbiri, included in the tournament. As of now, there's been a change in one of the non-Japanese fighters participating in the tournament.

Roman Mailov, who just won on December 23 and signed to GLORY this month, will replace Houcine Bennoui and face the tall task of fighting Yuta Kubo at Krush.26 on January 14.

This of course is Mailov's toughest test to date, even though he is coming down in weight from 70kg. Mailov made the move to 70kg this year but judging from his physical appearance it looks like 67kg shouldn't be a problem. It also won't be Mailov's first venture internationally, as he travelled to Germany in September and beat Leo Zulic, just one week after fighting and winning in Russia.

The addition of Mailov reinforces how stacked the card is, as along with the 67kg tournament, there are also a number of other good fights. Full fight card here.
