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.
The promotions third to last event of 2013 will be headlined by a five round (not that it will last that long) main event between heavyweights Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva. While the New Zealander (Hunt) is the main attraction, the rest of the UFC Fight Night 33 card is filled with local talent, both new & familiar faces.
In revving up their quest for world domination, 2014 will likely be a defining year for the UFC. During their growth over the past 20 years, the promotion has become synonymous not just with mixed martial arts but with the best mixed martial arts has to offer.
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.
The UFC will travel abroad once again this weekend for the UFC Fight Night 33. Instead of Brazil, this time they are touching down in Brisbane, Australia, with a slew of Aussie fighters chomping at the bit to fight on the big show. Our main event features Aussie legend Mark Hunt, as he looks to keep afloat at the top of the division, facing Brazilian monster Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
The winner of The Ultimate Fighter is not always the fighter from that season to have the most success inside the Octagon; Jessamyn Duke could end up falling into that category.
