Legacy FC will be making its debut to the MMA fans of Minnesota on July 17 according to mmajunkie.com. The card, which will be held at the Grand Casino Hinckley Hotel in Hinckley, Minn, has a very intriguing line up. The card, which is aired on AXS TV, is headlined by a title fight between Derrick Krantz and Brock Larson.

Krantz (16-8) is a former Bellator fighter who has fought 5 out of his last 6 fights under the LFC banner. He has finished his opponent in every bout he has won, holding 6 KO victories and 10 submissions. He faces Minnesota based Brock Larson (40-9) who is a true veteran of the fight game. He fought his first professional fight in 2002 was at one time 31-2 and considered one of the best MMA fighters in the world. He is past his prime, but still capable for an exciting fight. This should most definitely be a war for the vacant Legacy FC Welterweight title.

The Co-Main event features what is probably acting as a title eliminator in the Welterweight division. Jacob Volkmann (17-6) takes on Zak Ottow (9-2). This will be a true battle as the former UFC fighter Volkmann takes on the surging Ottow. The winner of this fight will most likely end up fighting for the next LFC title against the victor of the Main Event. Also on the card is former TUF competitor Tommy Speer facing off against a To Be Announced opponent. Also a Middleweight bout between Nick Wagner and Chase Waldon. A Bantamweight fight between Augusto Mendez and Donald Williams. To cap off the main card there is a Lightweight war between Derek Getzel and Kenneth Glenn. This will be an exciting card and an exciting night of fights for Legacy FC 43.

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.
