Sage Northcutt the latest to be added to UFC 200

In news broken this evening, it was announced on GQ.com that up and coming UFC star Sage Northcutt has been booked on the July 9th UFC 200 against Enrique Marin .

Northcutt was last back in action in January when he lost via second-round submission to Bryan Barberena at UFC on FOX 18. The highly rated 20-year-old said after that he had been sick during fight week that it was a reason why he failed to perform on the Night. Before his fight against Barberena, Northcutt had taken then UFC by storm having won his first two fights in the UFC inside the distance. His introduction to the UFC late last year, however, wasn’t absent from criticism from fans, fighters and media alike due to Northcutt being perceived as given an ‘easy ride’ into the organisation and the recipient of a large promotional push.

Northcutt will look to get his promising career back on track when he takes to the Octagon against Enrique Marin though the man standing across the cage from him won’t be a pushover. Marin has a professional record of 8 wins and 3 losses and is an Ultimate Fighter Latin America 2 alum. He lost by split decision in his UFC debut to Erick Montano in November though before entering the UTC, the Spanish native had put together an impressive streak of six wins. At thirty years of age, Marin is much the elder of the two.

The UFC 200 fight card now includes seven bouts:

MAIN CARD
Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor
Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar
Travis Browne vs. Cain Velasquez

UNDERCARD
Derek Brunson vs. Gegard Mousasi
Kelvin Gastelum vs. Johny Hendricks
Takanori Gomi vs. Jim Miller
Sage Northcutt vs. Enrique Marin

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.
