MMA ValorWith three MMA events in the span of just over 24 hours this weekend, the sport will be on full display across many different platforms and networks.

Things just started on Friday night as XFC 24 and WSOF 3 will slightly overlap each other. Getting started first will be the XFC 24 fight card with its non-televised preliminary card. Ninety minutes later the WSOF 3 preliminary fight card gets underway and can be watched via internet stream. Thirty minutes after that the XFC 24 main card will begin live on AXS TV and sensory overload begins. As the headliners of the XFC 24 fight card get ready to watch to the cage the WSOF 3 four bout main card will just be getting started on the NBC sports Network. At this time your remote control will become your very best friend as you switch between the two unless you’re lucky and have one of those walls of TV’s or something.

Saturday belongs to UFC 161 and the promotions first trip to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The card has been hit with the injury bug that scrapped the featherweight title fight that once was its main event. The injury’s have weakened the top of the UFC 161 fight card but by no means is the overall card weak. The card gets started with two fights on Facebook before finishing the preliminary card on FX with four move fights. The UFC 161 main card will feature five bouts and begins at 7pm PT / 10pm ET live on PPV.

In all there are 32 exciting fights taking place across the three fight cards this weekend. Which one are you looking forward to the most?  If you need some help, here are the three fight cards below.

My brain child is MMAValor, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally it’s here. Been an MMA fan since TUF season one (play catch up all the time) and the obsession started to grow like a weed and as the sport grows so does the love for the sport. I’m a jack of all trades, a very organized person that rides an emotional roller coaster daily.
