City of Dreams will be pitching home grown talent from China against some of the world's best Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters at the next Fury cage fighting championship. Fury II - Armageddon, will feature 20 fighters in 10 cage fights at the Grand Ballroom, Grand Hyatt Macau at City of Dreams on Saturday, 9 October 2010.

This electrifying event will start with five fights in a specially constructed cage, which will see the best Chinese Mixed Martial Arts fighters going up against well known cage fighters from around the globe. The line up is as follows:

Li Qiang Kun (China) v Vaughn Anderson (Canada)
Zhang Li Peng (China) v Vuyisile Colossa (South Africa)
Black Wolf (China) v Ferrid Kheder (France)
Ao Ri Ge Le (China) v Mike Dizak (USA)
Li Jun Lei (China) v Rodrigo Caporal (Brazil)

Vuyisile Colossa is no stranger to Fury as the "Cheetah", as he is known in the ring, easily beat his opponent at the last Fury event on 21 May 2010 at City of Dreams. His match against Zhang Li Peng will be one to watch out for, as will be the fight between Li Qiang Kun and Vaughn Anderson. Like Colossa, Anderson has appeared in front of the Macau audience before so it will be interesting to see how these Fury veterans take on their Chinese opponents.

The finale of the evening will be the two World Championship fights - the Light Heavyweight MMA World title and the Welterweight MMA World title.

Crowned Light Heavyweight MMA World Champion at Fury I - Clash of the Titans, Antony "Wild Thing" Rea from France is back to defend his title against Holland's Jason Jones. Both fought at Fury I in May 2010 where Jones laid down the gauntlet to take on the champion at the next Fury cage fighting championship. Expect a show of strength and determination as these 93kg fighters go head to head.

Battling it out for the Welterweight MMA World Championship belt is Jess "Joker" Liaudin from France and Eiji Ishikawa from Japan. Weighing in at 78kg, both MMA fighters have exceptional records and it should be a no hold bars match.
