Magomed Idrisov (6-0) is a prominent M-1 featherweight with a formidable row of defeated opponents, including Max Coga and current M-1 Lightweight Champion Alexander Butenko (back in 2013 when he wasn't M-1 champioon yet).

Buchinger's main caliber is a ground game where he achieved extremely high level of fighting skill. He can submit his opponents in hundred of different ways and knows most of the existing grappling moves.

Lee "American Bulldog" Morrison will fight Movsar Evloev on M-1 Challenge 73 event, December 9, Russia.

Lee Morrison (15-7) is a prominent MMA fighter from Okanogan (WA) USA. He faced the TOP featherweight opposition in Russia and demonstrated exceptional fighting skills. Being the acknowledged submission master, Morrison posesses extreme danger when the game comes to grappling. Lee Morrison defeated current M-1 Bantamweight champion Pavel Vitruk (when he was still a featherweight) a year ago. Another notable feature of Morrison's career in M-1 is that when he was losing to his opponents, he did it only in a very close and intense fights. Eventually Lee's team decided to go down the weight-class. Therefore the current fight will be held in a catchweight - 63,5kg.

Movsar Evloev (5-0) is a young and prospective fighter from the Republic of Ingushetia, Russia. He is a solid grappler who tends to finish his opponents on the ground. The prospective of fighting such an experienced master as Lee Morrison opens a great opportunity for Evloev. The only question is: will he be able to handle such a dangerous opposition?

Sergey Morozov (6-2) vs Josh Rettinghouse (13-4) will fight each other on M-1 Challenge 73 event, December 9

Josh "The Finisher" Rettinghouse (13-4) is a 26-years-old prospect bantamweight fighter from Spokane (WA), United States. Rettinghouse is the "King of the Cage" champion who currently leads a 3 fight winning streak. Being a submission master with prominent Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu background, he never suffered a loss via KO or TKO. Josh Rettinghouse started his M-1 Challenge run from finishing Vadim Zhlobich at M-1 Challenge 66 event in May 2016. The second win in a row at M-1 event can turn "The Finisher" into a legit M-1 Bantamweight Title contender and grant him a shot at current champion Pavel Vitruk.

Sergey Morozov (6-2) is a solid knockout artist from the Republic of Kazakhstan. He showed an incredibly spectacular fight with Pavel Vitruk in February of 2016, eventually losing that fight via decision. Nevertheless Morozov held another two wins in a row, claiming his high striking level and champion's ambitions. Sergey Morozov is a well-rounded fighter who tends to outstrike his opponents in stand-up. He is one of those guys who are good in every aspect of the game, so it's difficult to see a single weakness in his skillset.
