Key Fights – Week of June 20

UFC!  Strikeforce!  Bellator!  All three in action this week in what should be an awesome week of fights!  Strikeforce Challengers returns to showtime featuring Carlos Fodor, James Terry, Ryan Couture, and Lorenz Larkin.  We even get an awesome women’s fight with one of the greatest kickboxers of all time – Germaine de Randamie.  Bellator’s summer series kicks off with their featherweight tournament quarterfinals, while the UFC is live on Versus this Sunday with Nate Marquardt vs. Rick Story as the main event.

Top bantamweights Hiroshi Nakamura and Abel Cullum are in action for DEEP and King of the Cage, respectively.  Lacey Schuckman and Patricia Vidonic have a big fight at a 110 pound catchweight and Gabriel Gonzaga is scheduled to make his MMA return for the MMAX promotion.  Much, much more action this weekend and you can find it all on the upcoming fights tab.
