A newly crowned WKN European Middleweight champion Zaur Dzhavadov is expected to headline the upcoming show. He is fresh of the win by knockout in the fourth round against Slovakian Jozef Kolodzej. Earlier in his career Dzhavadov earned European titles in Kings of Kings and WKA, as well as won several Latvian and international tournaments.

LNK Fight Night 12 features a mixed-fight bill with kickboxing, boxing and MMA bouts presented on the card. Alongside Dzhavadov, the likes of Marcis Grundulis, Milans Volkovs, Ralfs Vilcans, Alexandr Chizhov, Arturs Ozolins, Nikita Smirnov, Oskars Grosmanis, Danik Vesnenok, Volodymyr Skrypka, among others, are featured on the roster.
