Hey fight fans, we’ve got a super-packed weekend of combat sports. There are a ton of bouts, cards and title fights. so let’s jump right into what’s going on!
World Series of Fighting is back, with a main event rematch of one of the best fights of 2015. The main card starts at 10:00 PM ET on NBC Sports, and there are two title matches. Teddy Holder and David Branch meet for the inaugural light heavyweight strap, while in the main event, Justin Gaethje faces Luis Palomino for the second time, as he puts his lightweight belt on the line once again.
If you haven’t seen their first fight from WSoF 19, take half an hour to watch it. It is easily in the top five of best fights so far this year.
Titan FC 35
Saturday is double-booked, as Titan FC 35 kicks off at 8:00 PM ET on UFC Fight Pass. There are 3 title fights, starting with a flyweight bout between Tim Elliott and Felipe Efrain. Elliott went kind of nuts back at Titan FC 34, so this should be a good fight. The co-main event is a featherweight title contest between Des Green and Andre Harrison, while the main event is a lightweight bout, with Pat Healy defending his belt against Rick Hawn.
Spike TV is going to be nuts, as Bellator MMA and Glory World Series are teaming up for Dynamite 1, a hybrid mixed martial arts and kickboxing mega event. Things start at 6:30 PM ET with online prelims, and the main card begins at 9:00 PM ET on Spike TV.
The main card features a 4-man light heavyweight one-night tournament, with Linton Vassell taking on King Mo Lawal and Phil Davis facing former Bellator champ Emanuel Newton in the opening round. Paul Daley takes on Fernando Gonzalez in a kickboxing bout, plus the co-main event is a Glory light heavyweight title fight between Zack Mwekassa and Saulo Cavalari.
In the main event, Bellator light heavyweight champ Liam McGeary puts his title on the line against former UFC champ, Tito Ortiz, who has threatened to “grain havoc” on Liam’s face.
