We’re all counting down the days until we get to see some more action and it can be a challenge to keep track of what MMA events are coming up. We’ve taken a look at the calendars for some of the major MMA organisations for this week and put them together for you, so you can plan out what fight cards will fill your week’s viewing!
Last week saw Overeem take on the Russian Alexander Volkov. This weekend the UFC is back again with a title-fight match up between two former teammates – Kamaru Usman defends his welterweight title against Gilbert Burns. Burns has been surging since moving to welterweight and is currently 4-0. With Usman not tasting defeat since 2013 we’re excited to see if his ex-teammate knows the secrets and weaknesses that can get him the win and the belt.
Alistair Overeem vs. Alexander Volkov
Cory Sandhagen vs. Frankie Edgar
Marion Renau vs. Macy Chiasson
Alexandre Pantoja vs. Manel Kape
Cody Stamann vs. Andre Ewell
Diego Ferreira vs. Beneil Dariush
After Unbreakable III last Friday ONE have quite a gap before their next event – Fists of Fury – takes place at the end of the month, on February 26th, and promises to be a barn burner with a ton of great match ups and culminating in Ilias Ennahaci defending his flyweight kickboxing title against Superlek Kiatmoo9.
Nothing to report from Bellator, as we still wait for their 2021 events to get scheduled. We’ll keep checking in and update you when there’s news.
Also nothing booked for Invicta yet, their last event was on the 20th of November. We’ll keep an eye out for any signs they have something planned.
