Veterans & Fighter’s On The Rise
EFC AFRICA 30 – June 5 10:15 AM ET
Boyd Allen (9-2) Fight Fit Malitia
Don Madge (3-2) Team Tiger Muay Thai
Madge was set to face Leon Mynhardt and a chance to win his Title back but was canceled. Mynhardt took the Title from Madge in a split decision at EFCA 25 and giving Madge his only two loses by Mynhardt. Madge will now square off against Boyd Allen who has a seven fight win streak and fights out of Johannasburgh Gauteng, South Africa. Out of the nine wins by Allen seven have come via submissions and two decisions.
BELLATOR MMA 121 – June 6 09:00 PM ET/Spike TV/Spike.com
James Heidlage (7-0) Iron Works/ Fighting out of Carthage, Mo.
Philipe Lins (8-0) Nova Uniao
Heidlage will be making his Bellator debut with a Missouri Wrestling State Champion and Wrestling/Muay Thai background. Heidlage has a combined one KO and 6 submissions in his pro career.
Lins will be fighting in his 2nd Bellator match having recorded a win against Travis Clark via submission choke in the 1st Rd at Bellator 116 back in April. This could be a huge win for Heidlage if he can secure this victory over the tough Brazillian.
KOTC: Mach 1 – June 6 09:30 PM ET
Tim Chemelli (10-4) Team Sparta/Frank Lee’s Muay Thai
Tony Lopez (33-14) Team Wildman Vale Tudo/Team Oyama
Seems odd with 33 wins in pro fighting and has never fought in the UFC. Lopez had a stretch of 15 straight wins in his pro career collecting two of those wins over veteran UFC and present Bellator fighter Joey Beltran.
Chemelli who fights out of Cold Lake Alberta, Canada started his pro career with 8 consecutive wins. This will be one of Chemelli’s toughest fights and definitely a fan favorite. Expect a war as this will be a great stand up battle.
DFC: BEATDOWN 11 – June 7 06:00 PM ET
Deaney Owen (1-0) Highlander MMA
Shannon Gunville (2-1) Fighting out of Belcourt, N.D.
Owen who fights out of Tampa, Fl had a very successful amateur career and started her pro career winning a Flyweight Title defeating Sarah Alpar via submission choke in the 3rd Rd at Sugar Creek Showdown 21.
Gunville has fought at batamweight in her last two outings going 1-1 and will drop to Flyweight to square off with Owen. Look for a scrappy brwal as these two women warriors battle it out to move up the ranks.
RUFF 13 June 7 06:00 AM ET
Yadong Song (3-0) VS Ya Fei Zhao (4-3)
LU Zhenhong (7-3) VS He Jianwei (8-2)
Alateng Heili (4-1) VS Baasankhuu (7-1)
This’ll be the main event in the Batamweight Division. Fight fans keep a close eye out for Song! Three Batamweight fights on this main card is trying to get a shot at the Championship Title held by Azamat Gashimov. RUFF will decide who will face Gashimov based on the performances of these three Batamweights. All of the Batamweights fighting at RUFF have shown great performances and have proven to be the best Batamweights in China.
WSOF CANADA 2: Loiseau vs Lewis June 7 09:00 PM ET
Josh Hill (9-0) Iron Tiger Muay Thai
Mike Adams (7-2) Toshido Fighting Arts
Hill was a contestant on TUF 18 as he made it to the house defeating Patrick Holohan via decision. That’s as far as he got though when Mike Wooten defeated him in a sudden death round to move on.
Adams is looking to get back in the win column while suffering a loss his last outing to Curtis Brigham at AFC 16. I look for this fight going the distance as these two fight to make progress in the ranks.
TUFF-N-UFF: 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY June 7 10:00 PM ET
TJ Brittin (5-1) Victory Ministry & Sports Complex
Marco Lopez (2-1) Wand Fight Team
Brittin will travel all the way to Las Vegas from Missouri and fight in the premier amateur MMA organization in the country TUFF-N-UFF with high hopes of bringing the Batamweight Title back home. He’ll definitely have his hands full stepping into the cage with Marco Lopez. Lopez trains out of the Wand Fight Team and has fought his last three outings at KOTC.
