Jordan Killion, and Sam Alvey host the weekly Pound for Pound podcast coming to you weekly every Tuesday.

Last night’s episode discusses this past weekend’s fight card, UFC Fight Night 68, which took place down in New Orleans, Louisiana. The card which was originally headlined by a top contender match between Daniel Cormier, and Ryan Bader lost this main event, as Daniel Cormier was thrust into his title fight opposite Anthony Johnson at the top of UFC 187 where Cormier ultimately secured the vacant Light Heavyweight title.

Hopes were not necessarily at their highest for this particular card, it turned out to surpass all of those hopes. Jordan and Sam explain what they thought of the card, which fights they saw going as they picked, and what they thought about Dan Henderson turning back the clock as he made quick work of Tim Boetsch just twenty eight seconds into the very first round via knockout after landing his famous “H-Bomb”.

The #SaveMeSam segment put Sam in the chair to field a slew questions provided from users of TheMMAcommunity.com as well as several of our guys over at MMA Latest. Sam answered questions on his list of guys he has in his head for potential fights, how it is to travel to different timezones and compete, and vegemite.

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.
