Fighters of the Week


  1. Terence Crawford: It wasn’t so much a victory as it was a pulverizing, as Bud is the undisputed king at 140lbs. Is welterweight next?



  2. Martin Nguyen: In the biggest upset of the weekend, bar-none, Nguyen handed Marat Gafurov his first loss in devestating fashion, and has claimed his OneFC gold for it.



  3. Garry Tonon: For a time recently, Tonon was the hottest grappler in the world, cutting down legend after legend. His stock cooled for a little, but he remains incredibly dangerous and a top-5 P4P grappler.



  4. Senzo Ikeda: Avoided Mamoru Yamaguchi’s best weapon: the split-decision, en route to a five-round shutout and is the new flyweight King of Pancrase.



  5. Debora Anahi Dionicius: In a battle of unbeatens, it was Dionicius defending her IBF World Junior Bantamweight title, improving to 25-0, with a unanimous decision over 16-0 Diana Laura Fernandez in Buenos Aires.



6. Masaaki Noiri: In the main event of Krush 79 at the famed Korakuen Hall, Noiri knocked out Diego Freitas inside of round 2.

7. Linda Laura Lecca: In yet another female boxing world title fight, Lecca defeated Karina Fernandez in ten rounds.

8. Albert Machado: On Friday’s Golden Boy ESPN card, fast-rising contender Machado defeated Carlos Morales in the main event to move very close to a junior lightweight title shot.

11. Victoria Noelia Bustos: And STILL IBF World Female Lightweight champion after a UD win over Maria Soledad Capriolo Friday in Argentina.

12. Mukhamed Berkhamov: It takes a hell of a lot to knock out Brett Cooper, who has the chin of a caveman and has been in some wars, but Berkhamov did it, and remains undefeated.

13. Buakaw Banchamek: In the introductory show, Buakaw’s own All Star Fight promotion featured the muay thai legend in the main event, sending a game Azize Hlali to the canvas in the first round.
