Holly Holm on her past losing skid

We’ve been working a lot on varying kicks. It’s one of those things where I wanted to pick the right kick at the right time and I wanted to listen to my team and listen to what they were coaching me to do. And they saw an open and they called it. One of the things I wanted to do was listen to my team and I failed to do that in my last two fights.

on how she motivates herself:

I’ve never been on three fight loss like that. There’s still things I look in the fight and think “gosh I should have done this sooner and I should have done this better”. So I’m still wanting to learn, I’m still hungry to learn and that’s how I know that this is still something I want to do.

Colby Covington on his fight against Kim:

He hasn’t lost to anybody outside the top-5. No one’s dominated like that, I completely dismantled him. I just dominated the #7 guy in the world. This is officially the embarrassment to where I completely embarrassed him in Asia tonight and I’m going to keep embarrassing everyone in the division.

Rafael Dos Anjos on his win and how he felt in his welterweight debut:

I just heard Holly Holm, she said she was just like in my situation too. like 18 months without a victory. And it’s been 18 months that I haven’t had my hand raised in the Octagon. I have had fights with taller guys, like Donald Cerrone. As I watched fights from my opponent, nobody has taken him down and I got it. And I think I had a really good win. I felt he was strong, but I was stronger too.

Notes:

  • Holm said she changed her usual walkout song to one of the original walk songs she first had just to “go back to her roots”.
  • Covington called out RDA after leaving the conference.

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.
