M-1 Global Returns To Showtime Friday With Shamil Zavurov vs. Yasubey Enomoto

M-1 Global is set to kickoff another big MMA weekend Friday, returning to Showtime for the final time in 2011 with M-1 Challenge 30, co-headlined by a pair of rematches.

In the main event, M-1 Welterweight Champion Shamil Zavurov battles Yasubey Enomoto, a rematch from their bout in April where Zavurov successfully defended his title via unanimous decision. The 27-year-old was originally scheduled to defend against Rashid Magomedov, but visa issues scrapped that bout.

Zavurov (18-1) is on a 13-fight win streak and will be looking for the third defense of the title he won a year ago. Enomoto (8-3) has won two in a row since the loss to Zavurov, last submitting Josh Thorpe at an October M-1 Global event.

The co-main event features Jose Figueroa vs. Artiom Damkovsky, a fight that happened in July with Figueroa beating Damkovsky by second round TKO. Figueroa (10-5) is coming off a first round KO loss on November 20th to Daniel Weichel, while Damkosvky (9-6) is coming off a November 19th first round KO win over Antun Racic.

Tyson Jeffries (7-6) vs. Eddie Arizmendi (15-5) and Alessandro Ferriera (10-1) vs. Bao Quach (18-10) will also be on the televised card which begins at 11 PM in the East Coast with a tape delay airing on the West Coast. The show will be at Costa Mesa, California's O.C. Fair and Events Center.
