WHO YA GOT?: UFC ON FOX 13

John Michael Edwards

Published

on

Two nights, two events. This weekend, the UFC is offering a double dose of combat, starting off with “The Ultimate Fighter” finale on Friday, and the UFC on Fox 13, headlined by a heavyweight clash between slugger Stipe Miocic and perennial contender Junior dos Santos. Saturday’s co-main event will be a lightweight tilt with title implications involving Nate Diaz and Rafael dos Santos. Here are the picks from some of our writers:

 

Junior dos Santos vs. Stipe Miocic

John Michael Edwards: Dos Santos is what Miocic wants to be. Junior by being the better boxer and overall fighter. TKO in the 4th.

Ethan Mudford: I’d love to see Miocic win just to shake up the Heavyweight division and there’s a chance that could happen. I’m gonna go with the favourite on this one though. Dos Santos TKO.

Matthew Wells: The formula for beating Dos Santos has been proven over the last two contests vs Cain. Miocic isn’t capable of bringing that same type of fight. He’ll want to stand and trade which is home for Cigano. Dos Santos via TKO.

Sam LaPoint: Dos Santos will beat Miocic with superior boxing and get the TKO within three rounds.

AJ Camacho: I see Dos Santos winning by KO before they reach the third round. The only holes in Cigano’s game are his wrestling and his ground game, tools which Miocic has yet to deploy despite his Division I wrestling credentials.

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.
