Tonight’s lineup is sure to bring every MMA fan something. From the passion and determination of Soa “The Hulk”, the BJJ lineage of Igor Gracie or the tales of champion Jessica Penne we have something for you.
Returning to the show is freshly signed UFC heavyweight Soa “The Hulk” Palelei. Soa has been on a tear in his career and has earned his way back to the big show. Just signed to a four fight contract, Palelei will face Stipe Miocic in Winnipeg at UFC 161 in June.
Igor Gracie is training for a fight against Richard Patishnock at World Series of Fighting 2 that takes place March 23rd in Atlantic City. Gracie has been fighting internationally as well as being a Strikeforce and Bellator veteran. He is looking to bounce back from a loss in the Philippines and returns to New Jersey where he made his professional debut back in 2008.
Invicta’s atomweight champion Jessica Penne will drop by as well. Jessica is defending her title on April 5th when she meets Michelle Waterson in Kansas City. We will check in with Jessica and see what she has in store for us when she returns the cage at Invicta FC 5.
We will also be previewing the huge UFC event that takes place Saturday March 16th when Georges St. Pierre meets Nick Diaz. The build up could not have been scripted any better. We will look at that fight and the other welterweight scraps on the card.
