M-1 Global has tentatively revealed 12 event dates for 2015, four less than the Russian-based promotion held in 2014.
On Friday officials unveiled the organization’s 2015 schedule through a video released on its YouTube channel. The season spans from Feb. 20 to Dec. 18, with “at least” 12 cards to take place.
Of the 12 events, seven will take place in Russia, with the other five being held in Georgia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, China, and the Czech Republic. It’s worth noting that M-1 Global held its first-ever card in Beijing at M-1 Challenge 53 this year and will be returning to China’s capital again in 2015.
The first card of the year will be held on Feb. 20 in honor of Guram Gugenishvili and will take place in his native city of Tbilisi, Georgia. The heavyweight was killed in a car accident this past November.
