Controversial decisions are unavoidable and opinions trying to make sense of things cannot reverse the outcome. The Jesse Santos [0-0] vs. Roxy 'Roundhouse' Michaels (10-3) match and result left some baffled and others in agreement. Pay attention to the instructions the fighters receive before the last round. Was that what made the difference?
Maxine 'The Boss' Frost (1-2) steps into the cage against Piper 'Code Red' Rose (1-1). Maxine, ‘The Prez’ of the LFC, gets accused of having a conflict of interest in continuing to fight. With all the preoccupations that a normal event brings, now add to that the rigors of overseas travel, is Maxine at her best vs Piper? The first round is a struggle for Maxine; she took her opponent lightly and suddenly has to contend with the determination Piper brought. Was Maxine justified in her outburst and was her disqualification warranted? Watch for yourself.
Another first-time in the LFC cage, Croatian, Maya 'Hellfire' Veljkovic (0-1), steps into the cage against Lauren 'The Animal' Fogle (6-4). Maya was understandably nervous in the dressing room, where a compassionate Piper 'Code Red' Rose (1-1) offered her advice. Lauren brims with confidence as she enters the cage, taking ownership of the bout before the introductions. Maya, who manages to win over some fans, finds herself trapped and has to immediately go into survival mode; Lauren even uses Maya’s own arm to submit her. Did Lauren show good sportsmanship by ending the match in under a minute, instead of prolonging Maya’s humiliation?
