I hope these fights are well matched tonight… I will be checking on the weigh-ins to see if any missed on this card since in the past fighters seemed to have been missing weight and losing some of their purse…
After a review of the weigh-ins 2 fighters missed weight, but one of the fighters Christine Stanley could not make the weight on 3 days notice which should not be a problem, according to media outlets Agnieszka Niedzwiedz made a problem of it and to me I probably would not of done that Christine is a great fighter and has some pretty nasty knockouts, for Agnieszka she better watch out….
Alexa has been out of the cage for a while with an injury comes back from a long layoff to take on Jodie who has won her past fights with some great finishes, this fight could be a contender fight this division with Invicta. both fighters are confident so it looks to be a barn burner here…
