New Fight added to UFC 195 in January

Abel Trujillo UFC

The first UFC event of 2016 got another fight added to its lineup today as Abel Truillo (12-7) takes on Tony Sims (12-3) in the lightweight division.

Trujillo will be looking to halt a 2 fight skid that has seen him lose to Tony Ferguson and Gleison Tibau, both by rear naked choke. The fight with Tibau is surrounded with controversy as the referee stopped the fight before Trujillo had tapped or passed out. He has not won since his February 2014 “Fight of the Night” and “Knockout of the Night” win over Jamie Varner at UFC 169.

He now takes on Sims, who joins his Team Elevation teammate Drew Dober on the January card. Sims earned a KO win over Steve Montgomery in his UFC debut, but recently lost a short notice decision to Olivier Aubin-Mercier in August, leaving him with a 1 – 1 record for the promotion. He is 4-1 over his last 5 fights with his only defeat coming in 2013 to Dober at a regional show in Colorado.

UFC 195 takes place Jan. 2nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. With the new fight, the card now consists of:

  • Robbie Lawler (c) vs. Carlos Condit – UFC welterweight title
  • Andrei Arlovski vs. Stipe Miocic
  • Drew Dober vs. Erik Koch
  • Lorenz Larkin vs. Albert Tumenov
  • Joseph Duffy vs. Dustin Poirier
  • Masanori Kanehara vs. Michael McDonald
  • Nina Ansaroff vs. Justine Kish
  • Edgar Garcia vs. Sheldon Westcott
  • Diego Brandao vs. Brian Ortega
  • Stephen Thompson vs. TBA
  • Joe Soto vs. Michinori Tanaka
  • Tony Sims vs. Abel Trujillo

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.
