Featherweight Bout Added to UFC on FOX 17; Lineup Set With Addition

Former highly touted Lightweight contender Myles Jury has officially moved down to 145, and has an opponent. Jury is scheduled to face #7 ranked Featherweight Charles Oliveira at UFC on Fox 17. This was first reported by Ariel Helwani on UFC Tonight.

Jury was as high as the #5 ranked Lightweight after starting his career with 15 straight win, 6 of which were in the UFC. He had wins over Michael Johnson, Diego Sanchez and Takanori Gomi. He last fought in the co-main event of UFC 182 where he lost his first fight to Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone by decision. He was scheduled to face former Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis in the co-main event of UFC on Fox 16 before Pettis pulled out and was replaced by Edson Barboza. Jury then got injured and was replaced by Paul Felder.

Oliveira is a highly touted contender in the Featherweight division. He was on a four fight win streak before getting a main event slot at UFC Fight Night 74 against fellow contender Max Holloway. Just over 90 seconds into the fight, Oliveira collapsed onto the cage after shooting for a takedown. The fight was ended due to a neck injury to the ju-jitsu black belt. The injury he sustained was a minor neck injury due to a previous injury in training. This fight with Jury will be his third this year and his sixth in 22 months.

With this fight and the recently announced Strawweight fight (see that here), the UFC has set the lineup for the December FOX event. Here is the lineup

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.
