Hey fight fans, it is time for three cards full of mixed martial arts action! I’m excited, so let me try and get y’all hyped with what is going down this weekend in combat sports.
I know Thursday isn’t technically the weekend, but screw that, we’ve got fights! World Series of Fighting is back and there’s some good stuff here. The event kicks off with online prelims at 5:45 PM ET, then the main card starts at 7:00 PM ET on the NBC Sports Network. Everyone’s favorite hobo-drifter Cody McKenzie has un-retired and is back in action. There’s also a bantamweight title fight as Marlon Moraes defends his belt against the undefeated Josh Hill. Should be a decent appetizer-type card.
On Friday, things start to get crazy. Bellator MMA returns to us with a pretty good looking card. The prelims will begin at 8:00 PM ET on Spike.com. As usual, I’m pretty ignorant of the dudes on the prelims, but the main card looks solid. That starts at 9:00 PM ET on Spike TV, beginning with two undefeated welterweights, Chris Honeycutt and Clayton MacFarlane trying to hand each other the first loss. There’s also a women’s featherweight contest between Julia Budd and Gabrielle Halloway, which should be exciting. Speaking of featherweights, Daniel Weichel and Pat Curran are squaring off at 145 pounds, possibly to determine the next title challenger.
