Welcome to the latest edition of Missed Fists where we shine a light on fights from across the globe that may have been overlooked in these hectic times where it seems like there’s an MMA show every other day.
Alex Polizzi went toe-to-toe with Yoel Romero in the co-main event of Bellator 280 on Friday May 6, 2022 in Paris, France. The fight nearly went the distance had it not been for “Soldier of God” scoring a buzzer-beating technical knockout (TKO) win in the fifth and final round.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing an exciting featherweight showdown to the UFC Long Island main event, locked and loaded for Sat., July 16, 2022 on ESPN from inside UBS Arena at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York.
With the UFC, Bellator, PFL, and other major North American MMA organizations on an off-week, rather than debate open scoring and the same old topics, the MMA Fighting crew is doing something a little bit different.
