I've been a combats sports fan for a long time (originally boxing), and I can't remember a month with as many exciting fights that are scheduled to go down starting tonight Thursday April 4th and ending Saturday May 4th. Their are 12 cards in 3 combat Sports (MMA, Boxing and Kickboxing spanning the next 30 days. That includes the P4P boxing King Floyd Mayweather, Jon Jones the #1 Lightheavyweight and #2 P4P fighter in MMA, one of the hottest Boxing Prospects in Canelo Alvarez, Top Bantamnweights Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen will scrap plus most of the top women in the 145lbs, 135lbs,125lbs and 105lbs divisions including Cris Cyborg, Miesha Tate, Cat Zingano, Jessica Penne, Michelle Waterson, Sarah Kaufman, Zolia Frausto-Gurgel not to mention the top 2 155lbs'ers facing off against eachother in Benson Henderson vs Gilbert Melendez in a event that is pretty much UFC vs Strikeforce plus much much more.
