According to reviewjournal.com, the UFC will host its finale for Season 22 of The Ultimate Fighter on December 11 in Las Vegas. The event has no venue or main event to this point but two fights have been agreed to for this event. Lightweights Joe Lauzon and Evan Dunham and Welterweights Mike Pierce and Ryan LaFlare will all be at this event. The Ultimate Fighter 22 is being coached by Conor McGregor and Urijah Faber and is currently being filmed. Faber has no next opponent, but McGregor will fight Jose Aldo as the main event of UFC 194 in a Featherweight title unification bout.

Lauzon was just in action at UFC on Fox 16 on July 25 where he beat Takanori Gomi by TKO. Lauzon will look to add to his 13 career UFC post-fight bonuses, the most all time. He is 3-1 in his last four fights with two of those coming by TKO. This will be his 20th career UFC fight.

Dunham fought one week before Lauzon at UFC Fight Night 72. He picked up his second straight win with a decision over Ross Pearson. Before that he was on a three fight losing streak and was fighting for his job. He is 9-6 in his time with the UFC, all in the Lightweight division. He has four post-fight bonuses and 3 finishes in his career.

Pierce is back in action after a 22 month layoff. He last fought Rousimar Palhares UFC Fight Night 29 where he was defeated by heel hook. Palhares kept cranking the submission and injured Pierce with a sprained MCL and a torn ankle ligament. Before that fight he was on a four fight win streak with two finishes. He is 9-4 in the UFC and has yet to receive a post-fight bonus

LaFlare was last headlining a bout against Damien Maia. He would taste defeat for the first time that night when he was dominated for five rounds with grappling. He was 11-0 overall, 4-0 in the UFC, before that fight. He’ll look to get back in the win column with his first finish inside the Octagon.

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.
