Key Fights – Week of May 9

Another week without Strikeforce and the UFC, but it’s still a nice week of fights.  Bellator is the biggest event, featuring ranked middleweights Hector Lombard and Alexander Shlemenko, while Patricky Freire and Michael Chandler will square off in the Lightweight Tournament Finals.

XFO’s show in Hoffman Estates features Jeff Curran and Jamie Varner.  I’m still not sure if I will be in attendance, but it’s in consideration.  I may just save up my MMA dollars for July’s Strikeforce show.

This week belongs to the ladies, as many top female fighters are in action.  At that Same XFO show, Nicdali Calanoc, Felice Herrig, and Michelle Gutierrez will all be in action.Also in women’s competition, Jewels is putting on two events featuring Mika Nagano and former professional wrestling star Esui, while Cat Zingano will fight Angela Samaro at this week’s Fight 2 Win event.
