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.
Bellator 109 saw the middleweight champion defend his title for the second time along with two tournament finals.
Yes there was that “other” MMA event going on tonight but in Sacramento, California WFC 7 held it’s own. The door’s opened at the Jackson Sports Arena and the fans began to pure in, each of them to route on their favorite local fighter.
Lots of MMA action took place on free TV this weekend but one that did not have that luxury was the CFFC 28 event from the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The event was headlined by former UFC welterweight Charlie Brenneman looking to continue to reinvent himself at lightweight and more importantly, capture the CFFC lightweight title.
Bellator was all over the MMA interwebs today with the news regarding their November 2nd fight card and tonight’s Bellator 105. During the night’s main card on SPIKE, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney reiterated that news to the fans prior to the Bellator 105 lightweight semifinal round. Speaking of those semifinal bouts, four fighters looked to advance to the final and earn the coveted title shot.
A busy weekend of fights included a fine RFA 10 card from Resurrection Fighting Alliance, with a great mix of Midwestern talent and potential international stars. With fighters like Justin Lawrence looking to get back into the UFC and a title on the line in the main event, RFA 10 held its own.
Titles, late replacements and bizarre weigh-ins made XFC 26 interesting, but at the end of the day, it’s all about the fights. We saw some new faces to the sport, incredible grit, and a few good old-fashioned beatings to round out our night.
Slow motion heavyweight’s aside, Bellator 104 was an excellent card tonight, with a few future tournament place holders making their mark. It’s the Welterweights we all came to see though, with the finals of that 170lb tourney capping off the evening.
