FFC 21 Rijeka

After an excellent event in Zagreb, the FFC leaders announced the last event this year was going to take place November 27 in Rijeka, Croatia.

This Monday Final Fight Championship revealed the full FFC 21 fight card. Just a glance at the names clearly states that it will be one the most interesting FFC events so far. Three title matches and loads of bouts between best fighters guarantee an unforgettable evening.

MMA program will be headlined by the FFC heavyweight champion Dion Staring. He will oppose well- known German/Greek fighter Andreas "Big Daddy" Kraniotakes. It will be his first title defense after he outclassed Ricco Rodriguez a year ago.

Spahović and Prachnio in the fight for the first -93kg division belt

The audience from the region, especially from Bosnia and Herzegovina, will definitely be the most interested in the light heavyweight title bout with Bosnia's Tomislav “The Beast” Spahović and Holland's Golden Glory boy Marchin Prachnio. Spahović is still undefeated in the FFC with four consecutive impressive victories which definitely made him the No1 title fight candidate. Poland's Marchin Prachnio also stood out after his defeat over Matej Batinić and his prior KO'es of Bekavac and Mikulić.

FFC 21 also brings the bout of the best FFC featherweight fighters – Slobodan Maksimović and Lemmy Krušič with an intriguing welterweight category match between Bulgaria’s Vladislav Kanchev and Serbian Dušan Džakić.

Kujundžić and  Munoz headline the MMA part of the event, Petje defends his belt

The kickboxing part of the event will be headlined by light heavyweight Mladen Kujundžić who is to fight in front of his hometown audience and Spain's Frank Munoz. However, the most interesting match will definitely be the title match between Samo Petje and Tigran Movsisyan. In the last three years the FFC champ skyrocketed among the top class of the European kickboxers in -70kg category. On the other hand, Tigran Movsisyan became the No 1 contender after three impressive victories in the FFC ring. His latest impressive KO against Glory's Teo Mikelić secured him this title shot.

Fabjan vs. Emkić

The FFC 21 Rijeka also features a match between Slovenia's experienced kickboxer Miran Fabjan and Bosnia's Igor Emkić. Both fighters have vast experience in the FFC with some brilliant moments as well as disastrous performances. However, they never delivered a bad show and it was only a matter of time when they would meet in the opposite corners of the ring.

Other fighters who definitely deserve to be mentioned are Denis Chorchyp (FFC 2-1) and Stevan Živković who impressed the audience in Linz and therefore deserved one more match very soon.

FFC 21 will take place in Sports Hall Zamet in Rijeka, Croatia, November 27, at 7.30 PM.  Live PPV stream available at www.fightchanneltv.com.
