Miesha Tate vs. Liz Carmouche

In a bout that could be described as “Battle of the Bride Maids”, fellow Ronda Rousey victims Liz Carmouche and Miesha Tate will battle each other on July 27 on Fox 8s main card.

Carmouhe’s record stands at 8-3. She has the bragging rights as of right now to state that she gave the “Rowdy One” her toughest fight.

Tate’s record stands at 12-3 and has lost to both Rousey and Cat Zingano in her latest bout.

Ronda Rousey (L) attempts to submit Liz Carmouche in their UFC Bantamweight Title fight during UFC 157 at Honda Center on February 23, 2013.

Like Carmouche, Tate has already made her Octagon debut, losing to Cat Zingano on the Main Card of the TUF 17 Finale in Las Vegas. She not only suffered the loss, but she also lost an opportunity to coach against Rousey on TUF 18 which would have given her a second opportunity to face Rousey.

As a result, we now have two really tough female mixed martial artists squaring off on July 27 at the KeyArena in Seattle.

In the evening’s Main Event, they’re featuring flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson putting his belt on the line against John Moraga.

Amber “The Apex Predator” Stautzenberger took a tight decision victory at Dakota Fighting Championships 15 over Glena “Heartless” Avila.

A see saw battle ensued, both women had their submission attempts thwarted by the other. Avila rallied late in rounds one and two but Stautzenberger controlled both rounds for the most part. In the third, Stautzenberger took command and left no doubt as to who the victor would be.

Stautzenberger (3-1-0) and Avila (2-2-0) started striking right away and clinched against the cage. They battled for position and Stautzenberger landed short knees. She took Avila down and punched with her left hand, but Avila was active from her back and hunted for an armbar. Stautzenberger kept Avila pinned down and landed more punches, but Avila scrambled up to her feet and scored a slam takedown. She moved to a top-side crucifix and punched until the end of the close round.

The second round began with another exchange of punches and Avila tried for a takedown against the cage. She picked Stautzenberger up again and tried to slam her a second time, but Stautzenberger countered with a guillotine choke. She switched to an armbar and a scramble followed. Stautzenberger wound up on top and she landed hammerfists from side control. She lost the position while working for a submission and the round ended with Avila landing knees in the clinch.

Stautzenberger rallied with punches and mixed in leg kicks in the final round. Avila backed her up to the cage and Stautzenberger countered with a harai goshi throw into side control. She landed punches and transitioned to a high back mount and looked for the armbar opening. She pulled back on Avila’s right arm, but Avila escaped and the fight returned to the feet. Stautzenberger dropped down with another armbar attempt from the clinch and Avila defended until the end of the fight.

All three cageside judges favoured Stautzenberger’s positional control and strikes on the ground and she took home her third straight win, but Avila once again put on a solid showing inside the Dakota FC cage. She previously fought to a razor-thin and somewhat controversial Split Decision loss to Emily Kagan at Dakota FC 13 in October.

Rena Kubota defeats Peiling

Three-time Girls S-Cup champion Rena Kubota made a successful return to competition at Shoot Boxing 2013: Act.2 in Tokyo, Japan. Kubota used a standing rear-naked choke to finish Taiwanese opponent Du Peiling in the third round after dominating much of the 50-kilogram matchup.

Kubota’s protégé, 2012 JKS48 champ Mio Tsumura, advanced on in this year’s JKS48 tournament by defeating Fuka Yoshino. Yuuki Kira narrowly edged out Yusa Tachi to earn her spot in the JKS48 semi-finals, and Lorena “Lady Pitbull” Klijn outpointed Miyo Yoshida in a non-tournament bout.

Kubota (21-5-1 SB/KB) mixed up her punches well in the opening round and tried for an early high-arc throw, but she was unable to get enough height to earn a Shoot Point. Peiling (0-1-0 SB) looked to set up punching combinations, but Kubota blocked and defended well. In the late stages of the round, Kubota secured a headlock throw, and this time it was enough to earn Kubota a Shoot Point.

Peiling punched her way into a clinch in round two and continued to land more strikes in close. Kubota broke free and countered Peiling’s punches with kicks. She took Peiling’s back in the clinch and threw her to the mat with a high-angle suplex to earn another Shoot Point. In the dying seconds, Kubota landed a nice front kick to the face.

In the final round, Peiling appeared timid early on and Kubota took advantage. As the fighters clinched, Kubota locked on a standing arm-triangle choke and the referee called a “catch” to signify that Peiling was in trouble. Kubota then switched to a standing rear-naked choke and the referee intervened to stop the fight as Peiling began to lose consciousness. The official time of Kubota’s TKO victory was 1:12 of round three.

 

Rebounding from her first career defeat, Tsumura (8-1-0 SB) put on a strong performance in victory tonight to move on in the JKS48 high school girls’ tournament. Yoshino landed a series of stiff jabs in the opening round, but Tsumura rallied back and landed quick one-twos and combinations.

In rounds two and three, Tsumura remained focused on landing flurries of punches and crisp counter hooks when Yoshino closed in with right hands and body kicks. Neither fighter could secure a high-arc throw from the clinch and Tsumura closed out the fight with one-twos.

After three rounds, the Unanimous Decision verdict went to Tsumura with scores of 30-27 and 30-28 twice. Tsumura, who celebrated her 18th birthday this past weekend, will move on to the semi-final round of the JKS48 tournament in August, where she will look to become a two-time tournament champion.

 

In the second JKS48 quarterfinal bout on the card, Kira narrowly got past Tachi via a razor-thin decision after three rounds. Both fighters landed combinations of body kicks and punches throughout the closely-contested bout. As Tachi began to tire in round three, Kira scored with more combinations and knees to the body.

Kira’s late offence proved to be enough to sway the judges and all three scored the bout 30-29 in her favour. With the close Unanimous Decision victory, Kira will move on to face Tsumura in the next round.

 

2012 Girls S-Cup semi-finalist Klijn picked up another key win in a featured non-tournament bout tonight. The Dutch standout defeated MMA and kickboxing veteran Miyo Yoshida via Majority Decision after three hard-fought rounds. Klijn mixed up her strikes with knees and straight punches in the early goings, but Yoshida countered with stiff jabs and powerful hooks.

As the fight progressed, Klijn began to slow down and Yoshida landed front kicks, but her offence late in the fight was not quite enough. One judge saw the fight even at 29-29, while the remaining two returned scores of 30-28 and 29-28 for Klijn.

Jessica Penne vs Nicdali Rivera Calanoc

Jessica Penna returns...

Jessica Penna returns…

Former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion Jessica Penne will return to the cage as she takes on Nicdali “The Night Queen” Rivera-Calanoc at Invicta Fighting Championships 6 on July 13th in Kansas City, Missouri.

Penne became the first champion in Invicta FC history when she submitted Naho “Sugi Rock” Sugiyama at Invicta FC 3 in October, but she was defeated in a stunning upset by Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson in her first title defense. Rivera-Calanoc is hot and cold but is coming off a win over Angelica Chavez at Invicta FC 2.

 Penne (10-2-0) moved down to the 105 pound atomweight division after suffering her first career loss in late 2010. Her first fight in the new weight class ended in a dominant first-round submission victory, but Penne soon found that few opponents were willing to face her. She made her Invicta FC debut on the new promotion’s inaugural card and stopped battle-tested veteran Lisa Ellis in the third round to set up a fight with Jewels titleholder Sugiyama for the first Invicta FC title. Penne won via second-round triangle choke to garner the vacant belt.

In her last bout, Penne put her title on the line against Waterson in the main event of Invicta FC 5. MMA experts saw Penne as the odds on favorite to win the fight, but Waterson threatened with numerous submission attempts in the first two rounds and finally forced Penne to submit to an armbar midway through round four.

Rivera-Calanoc (8-6-0) spent much of the early portion of her career competing at 125 pounds, where she became a champion for Freestyle Cage Fighting. In 2011, she moved down in weight to 115 pounds and engaged in a competitive bout with current Bellator star Felice “Lil’ Bulldog” Herrig, and later opted to move down even further to compete as an atomweight. Rivera-Calanoc’s first fight at 105 pounds ended in a submission defeat at Invicta FC 1, but she returned to action three months later and posted a clear-cut Unanimous Decision win over Chavez.

In addition to the atomweight contender’s bout between Penne and Rivera-Calanoc, bantamweight fan favourite Leslie “The Peacemaker” Smith will also be in action on the Invicta FC 6 card. Smith awaits an opponent for her main card matchup. She is coming off of a Fight of the Night-winning performance at Invicta FC 5, in which she was very narrowly edged out by former Strikeforce champion Sarah Kaufman.

Invicta Fighting Championships 6 takes place on July 13th at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri. The event is headlined by a pair of championship fights.

Stephanie Eggink defeats Brianna Van Buren

Snowflake! Stephanie Eggink wins two in a row

Snowflake! Stephanie Eggink wins two in a row

In a see saw battle at XFC 23, Stephanie “Snowflake” Eggink earned a decision over Brianna “Tha Bull” Van Buren.

Brianna Van Buren stepped in for Angela Magana who pulled out because of injury. Van Buren started fast in each round but Eggink’s class took over and she assumed control.

Eggink (3-1-0) looked for the sub from her back after VanBuren (1-1-0) took the fight to the mat in the first round. She got in position for an arm bar and VanBuren used a slam to power out. VanBuren stood and kicked at Eggink’s legs until Eggink got back to her feet. Eggink tried to take VanBuren’s back in the clinch against the cage, but VanBuren prevented her from doing so and landed punches to the body. VanBuren scored with a knee and defended against a guillotine choke late in the round.

VanBuren opened the action in round two with a leg kick and a left cross and she quickly closed the distance to clinch again. Eggink countered with a knee and the fighters battled for position until referee Gary Copeland separated them. Eggink landed a combination and countered a takedown with a triangle choke. She switched to a triangle armbar and back to a triangle choke, but VanBuren held on and escaped just before the bell.

With the fight seemingly even after ten minutes, VanBuren landed kick-punch combos in the final round and Eggink responded with a quick flurry. VanBuren scored a takedown and moved from half-guard to mount, but Eggink hooked her legs around VanBuren’s arms and escaped out the back. VanBuren attempted an armbar and upkicked from her back. The fight returned to the feet and Eggink secured a takedown into back control. She spent the remainder of the round working for rear-naked chokes and landing punches as time ticked down.

After three competitive rounds, Eggink was awarded the decision victory and she will likely move on to compete for the XFC 115-pound title that was initially set to be up for grabs tonight. Eggink reportedly fought through the flu in order to achieve her win over the 19-year-old VanBuren, who put on an excellent showing in defeat.
