Now I’ll tell you all about Michael Khardas; Riggs’ opponent who’s 0-1. His last fight was against Brian Coldwell (2-2) on October 10th of last year at Extreme Fighting Challenge 8 in Vernon, British Columbia. It was a fight he lost by TKO (via punches) 3:43 seconds into the first round. Prior to the only fight in his professional career He earned a brown belt alongside Carlos Newton in Ranger jiu-jitsu and apparently competed in ADCC according to the UG. Somewhere along the way, he was dubbed the 'Samurai Kardashian' and by a strange twist of fate, his second pro-fight will be against UFC, WEC, and Stikeforce veteran with forty-five professional fights in Joe Riggs -- and that’s all we know about Michael Khardas.

How is this legal?

Joe Riggs is a lot to deal with in anybody's case. Not really a good idea. Joe's going to punch this guy out.

Whatever athletic commission allowed that is crazy. Unless the guy has some other crazy credentials that we don't know about.

i guess he has some credentials as a fighter, so i don't see nothing wrong with it ... lesnar fought mir in his second fight, toney fought randy in his debut and mercer fought sylvia ... i am sure the AC in question took into consideration this guys previous combat experience outside of mma ...
