About Us

History.

Professional sport club "RusFighters" was found in November 2004 in St. Petersburg, Russia. Originally the main goal of our Club was searching for the most talented MMA fighters in Russia and advancement of their professional career on international level. To achieve this goal managers of our Club constantly look through both amateur and professional MMA events all over the country. We promote the series of MMA events called "Siberian Challenge" in Siberia to find the most talented sportsmen in order to work with them in the future.

Our Club work together with many promoters of MMA events in various parts of Russia, which also allows our fighters to gain professional experience fighting in different events in inside the country before entering the international competition.

Today "RusFighters" work with many international organizations, federations, promoters, clubs and shows, our fighters successfully compete in different countries (Italy, Finland, Brazil, Korea, China, Canada, USA, Poland, Czech Republic, etc) in such events as BodogFight, M-1, ProFC, Hell Cage, Elite XC, KSW, Shine Fights, Art Of War, Fight Festival, The Cage, IAFC, WAFC, and others.
