Lingerie Fighting Championships announced today it has signed a three event deal with TC Enterprise Solutions that will see the controversial MMA league hold events in Kansas City, Dallas and Miami. The first of the three shows will be Lingerie Fighting Championships 23: Guilty Pleasures and will take place Saturday July 8 in Kansas City.
“We’re very excited to have the opportunity to bring our show to some of the best MMA cities in the country,” said Shaun Donnelly, LFC’s Chief Executive Officer. “Kansas City has been building a great reputation as a strong MMA market, hosting their first UFC event there last month.”
TC Enterprise Solutions President Tony Cheeze says he decided to book LFC after hearing about it from legendary boxing promoter Jim Hunter who used to promote Mike Tyson events with Don King. “I checked out LFC and it was one of the most unique, exciting events I’ve seen in a very long time. So I asked Jim to put me in touch and as soon as I spoke to Shaun I knew I wanted to be a part of this.”
LFC23: Guilty Pleasures will feature 16 of the world’s most beautiful athletes in 8 exciting matches including a title bout for the vacant LFC Championship. Shay Mazzato [0-0] who, despite losing to Feather Hadden [0-0] at LFC22, did so much damage to the champ Hadden was forced to retire.
“It is really a new era for the LFC and the first time in 4 years Hadden won’t defend her belt,” Donnelly says. “But I’m extremely confident whoever emerges as the new champion will be well-deserving of the honor.”
LFC will follow Kansas City with an event in Dallas in September and Miami in November. Like all LFC events, LFC23 will be carried on more than 2000 cable systems and networks worldwide. Tickets will be available at the venue, Soccer Nation KC at 520 S. 55th Street, Kansas City, KS.
