UFC

Greetings violence pals. We’ve got a good set of fights this weekend, with some world titles at stake. Things kick off on Saturday night and should wrap up early Sunday afternoon, leaving you degenerates plenty of time to make a grilled cheese sandwich for your mom. Let’s take a look at the fights!

SATURDAY

Invicta FC 17

The awesome ladies of Invicta are back and they’re bringing non-stop action on Saturday night. The entire event is available on UFC Fight Pass, starting at 9PM ET. The main event is a bantamweight title fight between Colleen “Thoroughbred” Schneider and reigning champ Tonya “Triple Threat” Evinger. Expect some gritty grappling on that one. There’s also a strawweight title fight on the co-main event, as champ Livia Renata “Livinha” Souza takes on Angie “Overkill” Hill.

HBO Boxing: Alvarez vs Khan

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez defends his newly won middleweight title against Amir “King” Khan, exclusively on pay per view, starting at 9PM ET. On the undercard, a pair of guys who lost to Gennady Golovkin, David Lemeiux and Curtis Stevens, look to return to the win column against Glen Tapia and Patrick Texeira, respectively.

SUNDAY

UFC Fight Night 87

Mother’s Day is kicking off with kicks, as UFC Fight Night 87 starts bright and early at 10:30AM ET on Fight Pass. Neil Seery and Kyoji Horiguchi will be finishing things off in the flyweight division for the early prelims, and that fight should be really great. The regular prelims start at 12PM ET on Fox Sports 1, and the most interesting fight there is a lightweight clash between Rustam Khabilov and young prospect Chris Wade.

The main card starts at 2PM ET on FS1 with a strawweight bout between the undefeated Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Heather Clark. Nikita Krylov makes his return to the cage as he faces Francimar Barroso at light heavyweight, and there’s a welterweight clash between Gunnar Nelson and Albert Tumenov that should be scintillating.

The co-main and main events both take place in the heavyweight division. Stefan Struve takes on Bigfoot Silva, while top five contenders Andrei Arlovski and Alistair Overeem meet in the main event. Expect someone to go to sleep in that one.
