UFC fight night in Las Vegas
After a successful stint in Houstonlast week and a UFC 262 marked by the victory of the BrazilianCharles Oliveira onMichael Chandler, the UFC (re) settles in the city that never sleeps, Las Vegas. We will therefore find, in the night from Saturday to Sunday (4:00 am for the bravest, editor's note) a fairly classic fight night, made up of six fights including two female posters!
Honor to the ladies then, with these two faces betweenYan Xiaonan and Carla Esparza among the straws andFelicia Spencer and Norma Viana in the feathers! Our first two fighters, both members of the TOP 5 in their category, will try to get an important victory in the race for the title. Indeed, the latter seek to acquire a maximum of victories and therefore experience before possibly trying to face the freshly titled champion.Rose Namajunas ! For the second face to face, it is a test fight, allowing them to gain experience and mass fights in order to expand their respective prize lists!
Now let's move on to the main poster of this fight night, namely, the face to face betweenRob Font and Cody Garbrandt ! Our two fighters, members of the TOP 5 among the bantams, will also try to expand their already well-stocked record (18-4-0 and 12-3-0 respectively for the two American compatriots). Perhaps enough to worry the reigning champion in this category (Aljamain Sterling). For the rest of the fight card, it's Justin Tafa ,David Dvorak andJack Hermansson who will compete respectively in the heavyweight, flyweight and medium categoriesJared Vanderaa ,Raulian Paiva andEdmen Shahbazyan
In short, a beautiful fight card, which we hope will keep all its promises!
See you in the night from Saturday to Sunday nøkers!
Las Vegas Gala
We're staying in Las Vegas for a gala that promises to be epic! Two fights for two titles including a unification of four belts It promises!
We start this gala with what most resembles a clash between the BritishJosh Taylor and the AmericanJose Carlos Ramírez. Indeed, the two men have an impressive track record (17-0-0 and 26-0-0 respectively) and are still undefeated among the professionals. Ramirez, who holds the WBC and WBO belts in the super-lightweight category, will put them in play against Josh Taylor who will bet his two WBA and IBF belts for a dantesque unification! So who of these two super fighters will keep his invincibility at the end of this fight Answer on Saturday evening the nøkers!
Make way for the second fight of this gala, and not the least, since this is a fight for the WBC title in the super-lightweight category as well! Our two protagonists are the Americanjose zepeda and his compatriotHenry Lundy ! They too, holders of impressive records, 33-2-0 for Zepeda and 31-8-1 for Lundy, they will try to get a magnificent victory in Las Vegas for a coveted title and which will add a nice line to their CV! In short, for this Las Vegas gala, two fights for international titles, a feast to come!
Coventry Gala in England
Head to England for a gala that promises to be thrilling! Again, two fights for two separate titles. The first face to face concerns the BritishSam Eggington against the mexicanCarlos Molina. Our two fighters, from different backgrounds, will have the opportunity to face each other this Saturday evening for the first time in their career and this for their 37th and 50th respective fights. We therefore have to deal with two experienced and confirmed fighters, who are thirsty for titles. That's good, a title is at stake this Saturday in Coventry; the WBC world belt among the means!
It remains to be seen which of the two fighters will want it the most! Eggington, defeated two games ago, is considered less fit as Molina has crushed everything in his path for 6 games. Only, you should never underestimate a boxer when his back is against the wall. The appointment is made, see you Saturday nøkers!!
Regarding the second poster of this gala, we will be entitled to a great face to face betweenRiver Wilson Bent andgeorge farrell. The two fighters, still unbeaten in 8 and 5 fights respectively, will try to win a new victory with a title at stake: the national title of champion of England BBBofC in the middle class! A title that could add a nice line to the CV of the two fighters!
See you Saturday night!
