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!
Following on from the edge of your seat action of Blaydes vs. Lewis the UFC are carrying on the heavyweight action with Rozenstruik vs Gane. We were hype to see the potential fireworks in the classic clash between a top level wrestler and a devastating striker in the Blaydes and Lewis match up, and it definitely delivered, so we’re still riding the heavyweight hype train into this card. Rozenstruik has only seen the decision once in his 12 fights, with ten of his 11 wins coming via KO. While gane has a Muay Thai background his MMA career is more varied, with 3 KO’s, 3 subs and 1 decision. We’re going to be holding our breath and trying not to blink.
Jairzinho Rozenstruik vs Ciryl Gane
Nikita Krylov vs. Magomed Ankalaev
Montana De La Rosa vs. Mayra Bueno Silva
Pedro Munhoz vs. Jimmie Rivera
Angela Hill vs. Ashley Yoder
Alex Caceres vs. Kevin Croom
The wait is over and ONE returns this week with Fists of Fury which is frankly a barn burner of a card. Striking focused the card features just one MMA bout, with the rest made up of a single Muay Thai fight and four kickboxing match ups. The main event sees Ilias Ennahachi defend his Flyweight Kickboxing strap against Superlek Kiatmoo9. We also get to see Giorgio Petrosyan against Davit Kiria and Rodtang Jitmuangnon against Tagir Khalilov and earlier on the card Wondergirl Fairtex against Jackielou Buntan. The card is stacked and we’re here for all of it, though if we have to pick a favourite match up then watching Giorgio ‘The Doctor’ Petrosyan put on another clinic is going to be our highlight (and prediction for that match up).
Ilias Ennahachi vs. Superlek Kiatmoo9 (Flyweight Kickboxing Title)
Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Davit Kiria (Kickboxing)
Rodtang Jitmuangnon vs. Tagir Khalilov (Kickboxing)
