Ex-UFC Welterweight Jake Shields ‘Confident’ He’d Beat Lawler in a Rematch

Published

on

Despite no longer being in the UFC, WSOF welterweight Jake Shields believes he is ‘more than capable’ of beating reigning UFC Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler in a rematch.(Please note that Shields has already defeated Lawler) in a recent interview with Submission Radio. Lawler recently defeated Canadian Rory MacDonald at UFC 189 in Las Vegas, Nevada which is considered to be one of the greatest welterweight fights of all time.

Shields was as impressed as the rest of us as you can see from his recent interview with Submission Radio below.

“I thought it was a great fight,” Shields told Submission Radio. “That was a good back-and-forth fight that was really close. I actually had Rory a little bit ahead going into the fourth or the fifth I think it was the fourth round and Robbie just brought the pressure up and knocked him out. I think it was a great performance.”

Jake Shields has already fought and beat the champion and he is confident a rematch would end in the same manner. This fight was all the way back in 2009 which Shields won via guillotine choke within 122 seconds,a very impressive performance indeed.

I think these comments are from a man who is confident and has a lot of belief in his MMA ability rather than a man who is cocky and being rude as well as being disrespectful because he clearly displays his respect for  the reigning UFC welterweight champion and these comments shouldn’t really be taken out of context. You can see the rest of his interview below.

“Yeah I would love to fight Robbie. He’s a guy that I have always had a lot of respect for. I beat him in the past and of course I think I’d beat him again. I mean, It would be a tough fight. I think he has improved a lot but I think I have as well.”

Ladies Fight Night 7: “Double Trouble” Preview

Published

on

Polish women’s federation Ladies Fight Night is going to celebrate their second birthday this year on the 15th to 17th of December. Two days, two events with a lot of great bouts.

LFN in Poland is being titled the new Invicta FC. The Polish owners created this federation to give European women a chance to fight on a big platform.

Hosting their first ever event in December 2015, LFN will hold two great cards next week, that will feature women who have fought under many prestigious promotions, such as the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Glory, and Kunlun.

Two days of fantastic fights, intensified by a double dose of sports impressions. The name is not accidental, LFN 7 / LFN 8 combines two events, during which the best Polish fighters will be shown, as well as the best fighters from Europe (including France, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic and Romania)

The stakes are high, and we are electrified by the clashes between warriors such as Żaneta Cieśla vs Silvia La Notte and Patricia Axling vs. Cindy Silvestri. Mainly due to their vastness of their experience in the cage.

In the fight of the evening, the talented Romanian Cristina Stanciu will face Magdaléna Šormovádo. Stanciu fought twice in the UFC, but she was unfortunately cut from the promotion after suffering consecutive losses to Cortney Casey and Maryna Moroz.

Judyta Rymarzak vs Marta Waliczek is an amazing fight between two experienced kickboxers. Both making their pro MMA debuts on the night, we will witness a one-of-a-kind duel between two kickboxing perfectionists, as they look to transcend their skills into the MMA world.
