Jeremiah Labiano

He's fighting tomorrow night for Tachi Palace Fights in the Co-Main Event for the Bantamweight Title. His opponent is Joe Soto who many of us already know from his fights at Bellator a few years ago. It'll be interesting to see where Labiano goes if he's able to pull this victory off. He's probably gonna be considered an underdog to Soto but I think an upset is very possible. Labiano has a slick ground game. He's a BJJ instructor for Bara Brothers.

Jeremiah Labiano came up short tonight. But it was fun to watch.

Larissa Moreira Pacheco (9-0) Women's Bantamweight. She just won again today at Jungle Fights 63. Ko over then undefeated Irene Aldana to win the Title.



Irene Aldana just signed with Invicta. That makes me believe that Pacheco will be in the UFC sooner rather than later.

After last night's event, I'll add Tuhugov and Tumenov to my list of fighters I'm watching as up-and-comers.

I'm also eager to see more of Aljamain Sterling (who is making his UFC debut at UFC 170).
