The show will also feature a co-main event between Liu PingYuan and Shang ZhiFa who will face off in a featherweight showdown. With just two fights remaining before the 2013 RMB 1,000,000 Super Fight, RUFF 6 will prove to be a pivotal night for a handful of fighters, as they attempt to move one step closer to realizing their dream of becoming China’s first MMA National Champion.

Prior to that he scored a split decision victory over Lipeng Zhang at RUFF 3 in March, and a first round submission win over Teerjiang Hasitieer at RUFF 2 in December 2011. Caporal will now look to extend his winning streak to four with a big performance against Hanchana.
