Going head to head with the ladies over at Invicta, WSOF 7 pulled off a decent card as they further solidified their brand and took to international shows for the first time. The card had some late changes but there was still plenty of talent o keep the card afloat.
Illness knocked one of the three title bouts off the Invicta FC 7 card at the last moment, but we still had plenty of reason to huddle around the ole laptop and watch some WMMA tonight. There was magic and mayhem in nearly every fight, with several ladies that impressed the hell out of me.
Another solid showing by the young and talented LFC crew, as their top dogs went to war and came back largely victorious at last night’s LFC 26. There was plenty of action and a few potential UFC fighters down the road, so let’s check out what went down in Texas.
Last night’s UFC Fight Night 33 was a night of brutal knockouts and stellar bouts across the board in Australia, with stand-out performances from key players. With several title hopes living or dying by their success, let’s look at how the night played out and who stood out at UFC Fight Night 33.
Pound for pound the best fight promotion on the planet, Invicta FC returns for its seventh show stacked to the rafters with talent. There are three straps on the line this time around, as Barb Honchak looks to defend the 125lb belt against ultra-talented Leslie Smith, while Carla Esparza battles Claudia Gadelha at 115lbs, and Lauren Murphy and Miriam Nakamoto fight for the inaugural Bantamweight belt.
WSOF is going international with shows planned in New Zealand, Japan and in any city that’ll have them, but they start this worldwide expansion in the great white North of Canada with this Saturday’s WSOF 7. Injury and visa issues leave us with a depleted card, but for my money the issues have just cut through the chaff on the card, leaving us with hungry fighters looking to shine on the world stage.
A card for hardcore LFC fans as some of the best the promotion has to offer will be in display during Friday night’s LFC 26. It’s a fight card that’s set to go fast, with murderous finishers across the board headlined by the former WEC and UFC fighter Leonard Garcia fighting for the featherweight title.
It was a tremendously poor night of fights, both inside the TUF 18 Finale cage and with the constant bombardment of advertising throughout the evening. The horrible pacing of the show had me almost wishing I’d wasted money on a PPV. Men and women rose and fell with different tidbits catching my eye throughout the night.
