Nate Marquardt vs Thiago Santos added to UFC Fight Night 88

Published

on

UFC Fight Night 88 in Brazil is slowly starting to take shape. Headlined by Jacare Souza vs Vitor Belfort, the card also has Matt Brown vs Demian Maia and Evan Dunham vs Leonardo Santos on tap and it has now added a 4th fight.

Nate “The Great” Marquardt (34-15) is coming off a huge knockout win over CB Dolloway, a win which halted a 2 fight losing streak and had Marquardt looking impressive throughout. Since returning to the UFC in 2013, Marquardt is 2-4 and has seemed up and down during his fights but his 2 wins have been finishes, a 1st round armbar of James Te Huna and the aforementioned KO of Dolloway. The 36 year old long time UFC veteran will be looking to keep it up and return to the form that saw him on the verge of challenging for the title in the UFC as well as holding titles in Strikeforce and Pancrase.

Thiago “Marreta” Santos (12-3) is riding a 3 fight win streak and has looked impressive in all of them. In his last fight he ended the undefeated streak of Elias Theodorou and he stopped Andy Enz in the 1st round at UFC 183. The fight that made people sit up and take notice of Santos however, was his fight with Steve Bosse at UFC Fight Night 70. It only took 29 seconds for Thiago Santos to finish the fight and make himself a serious contender for KO of the Year when he unleashed a devastating head kick that put Bosse out cold. The 32 year old Brazilian has been making a name for himself and will look to continue that trend in his first fight back in Brazil since 2014.

With both fighters showing that they have brutal power in their striking, we could be in line for another potential knockout of the year when they face off in May.

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.
