In the first episode of the season, the fallout from the last is event addressed early on. Coach Leon Hater admonishes both Feather 'The Hammer' Hadden and Lauren 'The Animal' Fogle for their actions at LFC 21: Naughty 'n Nice. One fighter accepts the criticism well, while the other vows to act in the same way if things don't go her way.
Not listed in the credits, but playing a starring role in this episode and in more to come, is the new training facility, DXG Defense. The fighters have a state-of-the-art gym to work out at.
Rounding things out is the continual push and pull between Maxine 'The Boss' Frost and Joel Kane. Maxine has suspended Pink Team member Holly 'The Lotus' Mei because of her blatant attempt to untie Audrey 'The Mongoose' Monique's outfit at LFC 21: Naughty 'n Nice. Joel makes the case that none of the black team members, who committed their own offenses, are facing any suspensions.
The march towards LFC 22: Costume Brawl, at 4 Bears Casino & Lodge in New Town, ND, begins in this episode. Maxine 'The Boss' Frost and Joel Kane are each traveling by car and with a companion, while they make their way to the event site. Maxine spends her time venting to Danielle 'Cow Belle' St. Pierre about her dislike of Joel. In the other car, Piper 'Code Red' Rose, who is a nurse, has to act fast when Joel triggers a serious allergic reaction after eating peanuts.
As usual, issues arise from the start. Andreea 'The Storm' Vladoi is adamant that she is not going to wear the costume she is given by her coach, Leon Hater. Maxine confronts Shelly 'Aphrodite' DaSilva, yet again, to warn her not to get drunk before the official weigh-in. 'The Boss' also pays a visit to Natasha 'Rattlesnake' Rodriguez to discuss past and future wardrobe malfunctions. Of course, Natasha finds offense and offers no guarantee of what her outfit might do on fight night.
On the lighter side, Joel ends up in another pool. This is the second time he has provoked one of his fighters into taking their anger out on him.

This episode brings together all the fighters with a few days to go before LFC 22: Costume Brawl. With the training and hard work now done, it is a time of waiting for the inevitable: fight night. Watch as a couple of the women try to unwind by the pool. One of them, Piper 'Code Red' Rose, is still in disbelief over her scare with Joel Kane and his peanut allergy. She struggles to get the experience out of her mind and recounts the ordeal to Roxy 'Roundhouse' Michaels.
The scenes move quickly. There are discussions and advice about how to prevent wardrobe malfunctions. Listen in on how Teri 'Feisty Fists' London deals with keeping certain body parts covered up. Holly 'The Lotus' Mei finds herself doing 'stage manager' duties now that she is on suspension. Feather 'The Hammer' Hadden persuades Maxine 'The Boss' Frost into showing her the new championship belt. Unbelievably, Joel is sleeping in the lobby and holds a team meeting, sleepily delivering a pep talk.
We sent two members of each team out to promote the fight at local bars. Teri 'Feisty Fists' London and Raya 'Sugar Ray' Ryans pair up to introduce the patrons to some LFC charm. Teri is a non-stop dancing machine who needs very little space to show off her skills. At another bar, Lauren 'The Animal' Fogle and Andreea 'The Storm' Vladoi are just as friendly, but they are more interested in doing some serious drinking. Andreea puts down multiple shots with a smile on her face.
Ring announcer A.J. Kirsch oversees the official weigh-in, signifying how close we are to the event. Some fighters are ready to settle things outside of the cage. Jolene 'The Valkyrie' Hexx and Andreea are ready to resume their rivalry on the spot. Audrey 'The Mongoose' Monique, perhaps unwisely, is not intimidated by the veteran, Shelly 'Aphrodite' DaSilva.
The costume Joel Kane has chosen is memorable. Is he trying to steal away some attention away from the women or is he just monkeying around?
The opening fight of LFC 22: Costume Brawl, is a turf battle between Karly 'Zuke' Zucker and Stacey 'Full Contact' Lentz; both women hail from North Dakota and each knows what is at stake: bragging rights. The parade of costumes begins with a harem girl (Zucker) and a gladiator (Lentz). The gladiator outweighs her opponent by 50 pounds and wastes little time in dominating her foe. The ending is controversial. What caused the tap out?
After a brief and combative Q&A between ring announcer A.J. Kirsch and Maxine 'The Boss' Frost, it is on to a naughty school teacher (Natasha 'Rattlesnake' Rodriguez) vs. a jester (Julie 'Squeeze' Ginther) in a battle of crosstown, Sacramento, CA rivals. Ginther uses her powerful legs to squeeze the energy from Natasha in this three round offering.
Audrey 'The Mongoose' Monique, dressed as a police officer, steps into the cage against an alien, Shelly 'Aphrodite' DaSilva. Shelly quickly changed the playful theme of the night into something frightening, when, after fighting well to start the fight, she bites Audrey in the eye which gets her a two fight suspension.
Outfits: Jester (Julie Ginther), Teacher (Natasha Rodriguez), Black number (Audrey Monique), Alien (Shelly DaSilva)
In this episode, we bring you two fights from LFC 22: Costume Brawl. Booty Camp graduate, Piper 'Code Red' Rose, dressed as a nurse, goes against Danielle 'Cow Belle' St. Pierre, whose costume is that of a cowgirl. The ground action is fierce; Rose comes out quick to take control. St. Pierre stays calm and transitions to the aggressor when the time is right. A must see triangle choke settles the matter soon enough.
It is the Windy City vs. The Steel City in the second fight. Roxy 'Roundhouse' Michaels, dressed as a school girl, battles Raya 'Sugar Ray' Ryans, who is strutting around in a sailor girl's outfit straight out of anime. Both are aggressive and are in a fast paced struggle to have more of an impact on the result. The judges had to really pay attention here. Did they get the split decision right?
Also, we take you for a behind the scenes look of the dressing rooms, which are busy with the women ensuring that their costumes prove malfunction-free. The tension is thick, as both teams prepare for a night of competition.
Outfits: School Girl (Roxy Michaels), Sailor (Raya Ryans), Nurse (Piper Rose), Cowgirl (Danielle St. Pierre)
Wearing a Mrs. Claus outfit, Teri 'Feisty Fists' London, comes out with a bag of gifts that she distributes to the crowd, while she dazzles us with yet another skillful entrance of dance moves and acrobatics. She faces off against Lauren 'The Animal' Fogle in a rematch. Lauren unveils her 'Super Lauren' costume for us; however, she finds herself motivated to not only win but to get the fight over quickly, as she has taken a liking to the referee and later claims him after her rear naked choke victory.
The co-main event of LFC 22: Costume Brawl is between a dark angel, Jolene 'The Valkyrie' Hexx and a french maid, Andreea 'The Storm' Vladoi, in another rematch; their first battle ended in a draw. These two share a mixture of dislike and respect for each other. Jolene, unable to help herself, pushes the boundaries of fair play when she simulates a sex act on Andreea's face. Keep in mind that this episode has an uncensored rating. Watch to see what else makes it so.
Outfits: Mrs. Claus (Terri London), Super Lauren (Lauren Fogle), Monkey in a cage (Joel Kane), Dark Angel (Jolene Hexx), French Maid (Andreea Vladoi)
We wrap up season two in this episode and give a peek to LFC 23: Guilty Pleasures. Fittingly, in the main event, Feather 'The Hammer' Hadden dresses as a dominatrix in her match against Shay 'The Fox' Mazzato who is in a brown fox costume. This is a brutal fight that leaves both women bloody. Hadden is impenetrable as usual, but she has a foot injury that Mazzato attacks. Hadden, ready for anything in the cage, traps 'The Fox' in a half-choke hold that allows her to pound the face of the challenger with her free hand. When the champion begins to pound the mat with the challengers head, it is mercifully stopped.
The after party offers something positive and rarely seen in sports, the coming together of rivals in a display of, however brief, unity. We at the LFC are proud of this unique show of camaraderie. Both teams indulge in drinking and playful kissing, as the tension and bitterness of earlier fades away. This is another uncensored edition, so the filter is off.
The episode continues with a meet and greet with fans. Watch as Maxine 'The Boss' Frost is the first to sign the backside of an autograph seeker. After that, more body parts get signed by the other fighters.
