TJ Thompson, the smartest man with the smallest say in Elite XC, will try to get back on the right track with ProElite 3 in Honolulu. The main event is odd matchmaking at its best, but this round of the heavyweight tournament should be a little bit more interesting. Plus, undefeated former Olympian Sara McMann takes on Strikeforce veteran Hitomi Akano. The main card airs live on HDNet on Saturday night at 10 p.m. ET.
With ProElite’s third show coming up on January 21 in Honolulu, Hawaii, the Outsider was lucky enough to land an interview with rising female 135-pound contender Sara McMann.
Titan Fighting Championships 19 takes place this evening at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan., and is headlined with Clay French vs. James Krause.
