UFC Ottawa is near which means so is a phenomenal night of fights as the UFC makes its way to Ottawa, Canda. As always another event usually means a debutant or two and this event is no different as Canada’s own Jonathan Meunier who makes his UFC debut on short notice.

Jonathan “District” Meunier is one of the top prospects coming out of Canada right now, dominating every opponent put in front of him to date. Meunier stands undefeated at 7-0 with only ever making it out of the 1st once let alone go the distance meaning this guy likes to finish his fights be it whatever way necessary.

Meunier took this fight on under two weeks notice replacing Alex Garcia against top ATT prospect Colby Covington. Meunier fights out of Tristar gym under the watchful eye of Firas Zahabi, he has made a very big name for himself in the regional ranks as of late after picking up two titles in his last two fights. This upcoming fight will certainly be toughest to date as he faces one the powerful wrestler and submission artist that is Covington.

Covington is an exceptional fighter that has evolved as a fighter since joining the UFC, his first 3 bouts saw him improve in every fight as well as going on a 3 fight win streak under the promotion. However, in his most recent bout against Warlley Alves, he was outclassed and submitted putting an end to his dominant start in the UFC as well as handing him his first loss. Now with this task ahead of Meunier he will be looking to end the fight how he’s used to and pull off a big upset in front of a home crowd. Training alongside some of the best fighters in the world including the events headliner Rory MacDonald, Meunier will no doubt be well prepared to tackle anything put in front of him.

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.
