"We've prolonged the contract with M-1 Global veteran fighters Buchinger, Puetz and Morrison," Finkelchtein said.  "We constantly work on our roster to have the best possible fighters."
Buchinger (30-4-0, M-1: 5-0-0), the 29-year-old from Slovakia, captured the vacant M-1 Challenge featherweight title in 2014, via a fourth-round knockout of Tural Raginov at M-1 Challenge 52.  In his last fight this past October, Buchinger successfully defended his title with a unanimous decision over current M-1 Challenge lightweight champion Mansour "Tarzan" Barnaoui at M-1 Challenge 62.
Puetz (13-2-0, M-1: 4-1-0), fighting out of Germany, is an electrifying fighter who won the M-1 Challenge light heavyweight champion in 2014, taking a decision fromViktor Nemkov at M-1 Challenge 46.  Puetz successfully defended his title twice in 2014 againstLuis Fernando Miranda (SUB2 - choke) and Valery Mykasnikov (KO/TKO2 - punches).  In 2015, Puetz took on previously undefeated M-1 Challenge heavyweight champion Marcin Tybura, who lost in three rounds due to a severely broken nose at M-1 Challenge 57.  In his most recent fight this past December at M-1 Challenge 63, Puetz lost his title belt in a rematch with Nemkov by way of a decision.
