Bellator Kickboxing 12: Gabriel Varga vs Cristian Faustino

Chingiz Allazov vs Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee 2 co-headlines Bellator Kickboxing 12

Gabriel Varga (17-6) defends his featherweight title against Cristian Faustino (48-18) on October 13 (AEST). The pair headlines Bellator Kickboxing 12, which is a part of a three-fight card, including Bellator 230 and Bellator Milan, held at Allianz Cloud (Ex Palalido) in Milan, Italy.


Varga, 34, claimed the belt by TKO in the first round against former champion Kevin Ross in July 2018. In his previous kickboxing outing in December the same year he stopped Shan Cangelosi in the first round. Over the course of his career the Canadian competitor also held World Kickboxing Network Lightweight title and GLORY Featherweight belt. He was last seen in action in July when he made his MMA debut scoring the second-round TKO win against Jamese Taylor at Bellator 224.

The representative of the country-host, Faustino, 29 makes his Bellator Kickboxing debut. He was seen in action earlier this year against Muay Thai star Saenchai, who won the fight by unanimous decision.

The Varga vs. Faustino championship bout is scheduled for five rounds.

The co-headliner of the upcoming show features Chingiz Allazov (55-3, 1 NC) of Belarus up against Sudsakorn Sor Klinmee (289-54-4) of Thailand. The pair meets for the second time. Their first outing in January 2018 ended in favor of the Belarusian kickboxer who earned a unanimous decision.

In his previous outing last November Allazov, 26, took a unanimous decision against Mohamed Hendouf. Before that he lost against Giorgio Petrosyan by unanimous decision, which snapped his win streak since 2014.

Sudsakorn, 32, won his previous bout in April by TKO in the second round against Samed Memaj. Before that he stopped Luca Tagliarino, also in Round 2.

The Allazov vs. Sor Klinmee bout is scheduled for three rounds at catchweight (71.7 kg / 158 lbs).
