To give the public a proper introduction to the fighters, Rebel FC organized an open workout session on May 27, three days ahead of the official contest. Held at Total Fitness at Guangming Square, in the heart of old Guangzhou, the event attracted media and MMA fans alike.

The crowd watched as fighters took the stage and sparred with their partners. Although what was on display was merely routine training, the fighters took the event very seriously. As always, every fighter demonstrated their impressive skills and diverse fighting styles.
