This is a very big weekend for combat sports. The UFC has their 175 card set for Saturday, the TUF 18 Finale card set for Sunday, and a fan expo all weekend with multiple activities and a veritable cornucopia of fighters on hand to sign autographs, take pictures, compete in mini grappling events and more.
The World Series of Fighting will kick off their 11th event on Saturday night, and it will be on NBC for some serious steps in the right direction for making their brand more mainstream. Within a two year span, the organization has managed to overcome hurdles that so many other promotions just couldn't clear. An event on a major network could be just what the doctor ordered for MMA as a whole.
Finally, the American based Muay Thai promotion, Lion Fights will kick off the weekend tonight with 16th fight card. If you've never seen a Lion Fights event, I highly recommend you remedy that. Their fast paced, action packed approach always delivers top quality sizzle, and tonight's line-up is a golden one.
The co-main event features the talented Tiffany Van Soest facing off against Sindy Huyer in a match that's sure to please any combat sports fan. Lion Fights has graciously provided us with Tiffany's latest video blog for our readers.
