1. Chike Lindsay (16-4)
Lindsay most recently defeated Malaipet Sasiprapa at Bangkok Fight Night in
Atlanta, GA this past June. The pair had met in August 2011 a fight with Lindsay had also won. Lindsay was then forced to withdraw from a bout in September due to injury and currently his next fight is unknown.

2. Luis Bio (11-4) (@LuisBio1)
Luis Bio dropped his fight to Michael Mananquil after the bout was stopped in the third round due to a cut. It was a close back and forth fight up until that point. Before his loss to Mananquil, Bio had won his last two bouts due to cut stoppages because of elbows against some of
Mexico’s top fighters (Brian Hernandez and Erik Mejia). Bio will be back in action on November 11th at the WCK WuLinFeng show against Zhou Zhipeng.
3. Shane Oblonsky (7-3)
Oblonsky was last in action at Lion Fight Promotions “Battle in the Desert 5” on February 25th in Las Vegas. Oblonsky rebounded from a decision loss in China in January by earning a unanimous decision win over Jose Palacios. Oblonsky is a talented fighter and when focused can give you his opposition fits in the ring. He is now training with Colin Oyama which will undoubtedly help Oblonsky reach the next level. His next bout is scheduled for the November 11
th WCK WuLinFeng event against Tie Yinghua.
4. Bryce Krause (9-4-1)
Krause returned to action after another year long layoff to be part of the K-1 Max tournament. He faced Justin Greskiewicz in the opening round and early on it looked as if Krause might be on his way to victory, but Greskiewicz turned the tables and defeated Krause by (T)KO. Currently Krause next bout is unknown, but hopefully fans don’t have to wait another year to see him fight.

5. Joe Sampieri (8-2) (@JoeSampieri)
Joe Sampieri most recently defeated Mike Erosa at the August Friday Night Fights Muay Thai event by decision. It had been almost a year since Sampieri had a fought, his previous fight being a decision over Harris Norwood in September of 2011. Sampieri’s next bout is currently unknown.
