Larissa Pacheco will now face Kayla Harrison in the PFL 12 main event
(https:)
The PFL’s first show of 2019 is once again seeing a main event change. Less than a week after scheduled headliner Louis Taylor announced that he would not be competing in the league’s second season due to the New York State Athletic Commission not clearing him for his welterweight bout with Chris Curtis, Thursday’s replacement main event between Kayla Harrison (3-0) and Svetlana Khautova is no more.

LFA 58 video highlights with back-to-back highlight-reel KOs not to miss
(https:)
If it was highlight-reel knockouts you were looking for Friday night, LFA 58 had you covered. Harvey Park (11-2) took out Jaleel Willis (9-3) with a first-round TKO in the LFA 58 main event at Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque, N.M. The main card aired on AXS TV. But the two biggest highlights came back-to-back, and they came quickly into their fights. First, Flavian Pilgrim (5-1) needed just 50 seconds to KO Sherwin Price (5-2) with a massive punch in their lightweight bout. And in the next fight, Luiz Gavinho (9-4) put out Vince Fricilone’s (8-2) lights with a flying knee in just 40 seconds.

Invicta FC 33 results: Jinh Yu Frey outpoints Minna Grusander again to retain atomweight title
(https:)
The second meeting between Jinh Yu Frey and Minna Grusander was arguably even closer than the first, but the result was the same: Frey leaving the cage with Invicta gold around her waist. Frey (8-3) successfully defended her atomweight championship for the first time in the main event of Invicta FC 33 on Saturday at the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo., with a split decision (48-47, 47-48, 48-47) win over Grusander (6-3). This was an immediate rematch of their Invicta FC 30 encounter in July that Frey won by unanimous decision.

Why cross-promotional title fights could be just what Bellator and Rizin FF need right now
(https:)
New Year’s Eve is just the beginning, according to Bellator President Scott Coker. When he sends Darrion Caldwell, his promotion’s bantamweight champ, across the Pacific to fight Kyoji Horiguchi for the Rizin FF title at the end of the year, he’s banking on it being the start of a beautiful – and mutually beneficial – friendship. And, if they get the details just right and both sides stay true to their commitments, he might end up being right.

Liddell vs. Ortiz 3: A (potential) buyer's guide to pay-per-view
(https:)
It’s almost decision time for fight fans. The trilogy fight most of us stopped asking for a decade ago is almost upon us. This Saturday night in Inglewood, Calif., Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz will square off for the third time when Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions makes its first foray into the world of MMA. And yeah, they’re selling this thing on pay-per-view – and the fighters themselves are reportedly depending heavily on good sales figures to make this worth their while. Should you buy it? Should you try to find some means of watching it without paying for it? Should you ignore it altogether? To answer these questions, maybe we need to start by asking and answering some others.

Cage Warriors 99 results: James Webb scores first-round knockout in front of home crowd
(https:)
James Webb wasn’t intimidated by Jason Radcliffe’s reach or power, and it paid off big – and quickly – at Cage Warriors 99. Less than 1:30 into tonight’s headlining bout, Webb (5-1) closed in on the lengthy, studious Radcliffe (13-6) and landed a left hook that would cause his knees to give out from under him. Radcliffe’s delayed physical reaction made for a confusing sight at first, but it soon became clear that he was seriously disoriented.

ONE Championship 84 results: Zebaztian Kadestam takes 170-pound title with thrilling late KO
(https:)
As ONE Championship 84’s headliner wore on, it wasn’t at all clear whether Zebaztian Kadestam’s somewhat patient approach would pay off against a gritty Tyler McGuire. However, just as it seemed like ONE Championship’s new welterweight titleholder was going to be decided in the judges’ scorecards, Kadestam (11-4) found what he’d been looking for. With about 30 seconds left in the fifth and final round, Kadestam dropped McGuire (11-1) with a massive right hand, which he followed up with a knee to secure the most notable win of his MMA career. ONE Championship 84 took place at Stadium Istora in Jakarta, Indonesia. It streamed live on the ONE Championship app, following prelims on Facebook and Twitter.
