Three fights from LFC 21: Naughty 'n Nice make it into this episode. Even casual fans will notice that the interplay between Cali Cat (4-0) and Lauren 'The Animal' Fogle (6-4) shows true animosity between the two. They finally meet up after extended trash talking. Cali, the bigger fighter, has an ankle injury that Lauren goes right after. This strategy backfires on Lauren, and she finds herself trapped in a submission hold that makes her scream from the pain. The fight is called to a stoppage, but did the referee make the right call?
The second match is a grind it out battle of wills between Shelly 'Aphrodite' DaSilva (9-7) and Roxy 'Roundhouse' Michaels (10-3) who is making her LFC debut. Michaels is fearless against a volatile opponent with a short fuse. This one is very tough to score, but Roxy takes it in a controversial split decision win.
For the third fight, we present MaiNe 'Main Event' Morgan (16-2) vs. Sheila 'Crash' Cardinal (9-10). Both fighters bring plenty of experience into the cage. For Morgan, a possible title shot is on the line. The larger woman, Cardinal, is able to assert herself early; her size is overwhelming. MaiNe has a strong game plan and patiently seizes on an opening when it arrives. A creative triangle choke with her legs saves the day for Morgan as she submits a standing Cardinal.
