Key Fights – Week of August 1

This week is crazy stacked with flyweight action as we have nine of the top 25 flyweights in the world in action.  Pancrase will begin their Flyweight Title tournament, while we’ll see Darrell Montague defend his Tachi Palace Title against Ian McCall.  Mamoru Yamaguchi will fight Jussier da Silva while Ulysses Gomez, Masaaki Sugawara, and Kevin Dunsmoor will all be in action.

And oh yeah, there’s a UFC even this week.  Tito Ortiz looks to continue his climb in the light heavyweight rankings when he takes on Rashad Evans at UFC 133.  Vitor Belfort will be fighting Yoshihiro Akiyama and Chad Mendes will take on Rany Yahya in other big fights.  Check out all of the biggest fights for August on the upcoming fights tab of this site!
