Bugaenko Added to Zhara Fight
Igor Bugaenko, the talented Belorussian fighter and Superkombat champion, has been added to the Zhara Fight card that takes place May 30 in Moscow. Bugaenko will face Mikhail Calyh of Russia. Calyh was originally scheduled to face Redouan Cairo. Bugaenko fought for the ACB KB 85kg title last month in Moscow, losing a decision to Artem Levin at ACB KB 15.

Lion Fight Announcements
Running three shows in four weeks is tough for any promoter, but Lion Fight has a busy July schedule with events being held on July 7 in London, July 21 in France, and July 28 at the Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut. Lion Fight and its promotional partner Muay Thai Grand Prix have released some fight card updates. Here are the latest fight cards as of this writing. No broadcast partner has been announced yet-the promotion has been partnering with an MMA subscription service lately. Apologies in advance for any fighter name misspellings or bouts omitted. Added bouts will be mentioned in future news reports.
