Must See Fights for Nov 18-19

By: BujuMust See Fights for Nov 18-19


Angela Hill vs Kaline Medeiros

The former TUF competitor will be making her defense of her Invicta Strawweight Championship, meeting the 37 year old Medeiros who is riding a 5 fight win streak 

Tonya Evinger vs Yana Kunitskaya

Coming in with the Invicta Bantamweight championship, a 6 fight win streak, and 4 finishes in those 6 fights, Evinger faces off with a dangerous Russian striker in Yana Kunitskaya. Kuniyskaya has acquired 7 TKO finishes in 9 victories.

Bellator 165

Michael Chandler vs Benson Henderson

In the main event on a pretty big Bellator card, homegrown Bellator star Chandler takes on former UFC champion Henderson for the Bellator Lightweight title. Benson is 1-1 since moving to Bellator, most recently defeating Patricio Pitbull with a TKO due to leg injury. Chandler won his Lightweight championship back in June in the most recent victory of a three fight win streak. 

Michael "MVP" Page vs Fernando Gonzalez

Michael Page is the personification of Must Watch MMA. After picking up a violent win against longtime veteran Cyborg Santos, Page faces a significantly easier opponent in Gonzalez. While hopefully MVP will be given more reputable opponents going forward, even a perceived smashing is worth watching. 

Keri Anne Taylor-Melendez vs Sheila Ladilla

The wife of UFC contender Gilbert Melendez, Keri holds a kickboxing record of 4-2 including wins at both Bellator: Dynamite cards. Seeing her MMA debut should prove to be very entertaining. 

UFC: São Paulo

Ryan Bader vs Lil Nog  

While Nogueria is certainly nearing the end of his legendary career, Ryan Bader remains just a couple of wins away from a title shot in a shallow 205 lb division. With Minotauro seeking a Hollywood moment in Brazil and Bader title hunting, this is a fight to look forward to. 

Thomas Almeida vs Albert Morales

No words needed....

Cortney Casey vs Claudia Gadelha

After losing the rematch with Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Gadelha looks to keep herself in the title hunt in her return fight. 

UFC: Belfast

Gegard Mousasi vs Uriah Hall

In a fight that certainly isn't a guaranteed classic, there are MAJOR implications for the Belfast main event. While Hall has lost 2 in a row, and could be facing free agency with a loss. Mousasi can't afford a loss if he wants a title shot anytime soon as his style and persona isn't that of one who would jump on the UFC Championship fast track. 

Artem Lobov vs Teruto Ishihara

I've been very vocal about Artem Lobov's awfulness, but when you get a fight between a guy with nothing but one-handed power and an opponent known for loving his bitches + devastation finishes... shit gets WILD 

Kevin Lee vs Magomed Mustafaev

I don't know much about Mustafaev, but he has rattled off 13 straight wins with 2 of those coming in the Octagon. Lee on the other hand, is always good for fireworks. His most recent fight resulted in a nasty TKO win over top prospect Jake Matthews, and I expect he'll be looking for the same in Belfast.
