Episode Guide

A.J. Kirsch is handling the official weigh-in on the balcony of the atrium at the host venue, Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall. He jokes that Maxine 'The Boss' Frost [1-2] is absent, because she is trying to get the “no strikes to the face while in stand-up” rule overturned. Actually, ‘The Prez’ is late due to a delayed flight. Will she appear at all on this episode?

With 24 hours to go before the biggest event in LFC history, the fighters queue up for the weigh-in and requisite stare-down with their opponents. It is easy to see, with so little time left before their matches, that these women are already in battle mode, occupying that prefight head space that athletes know all too well.

Shelly 'Aphrodite' DaSilva [9-7] posits that her foe, Allie 'Babydoll' Parks [17-8], is not the goody-two-shoes people think she is. Lauren 'The Animal' Fogle [5-4], appearing very fit after knee rehabilitation, talks about the awkwardness of being on a new team. Jessie 'El Toro' Santos [12-4] is all business, commenting that the Pink team is more concerned with taking selfies. Jolene 'The Valkyrie' Hexx [20-6-1] cannot help talking smack to the newcomer, C.J. 'Ice Cold' Kellerman [13-4].

There is no shortage of drama surrounding the main event between Monica 'Flowerbomb' Garcia [15-5] and Roxy 'Roundhouse' Michaels [10-3]. Monica gets on the scale with the championship belt that she does not want to take off, causing Joel Kane to remark that she will not have it to take with her after the match.

After the formalities, the fighters are more than happy to interact with their fans of all ages. The much beloved, Serina 'Honey Punch' Kyle [2-2], spends time with her admirers, as they soak up her good vibes.
