Top-10 Viewing Options: Not exactly any Creed vs. Balboa this 4th of July weekend, to say the least.

  1. Chris Colbert vs. Tugstsogt Nyambayar/Jon Fernandez vs. Michel Rivera: Nyambayar is a fill-in for Yuriorkis Gamboa, which is a MUCH better fight.

  2. Legacy Fighting Alliance 110: Two title fights, which is the LFA I know and love.

  3. Cage Fury Fighting Championship 98: Evan Cutts vs. Yohan Lainesse for the welterweight title could end of being the best fight of the weekend.

  4. Titan Fighting Championship 70: Featuring the MMA debut of Jiu-Jitsu superstar and multiple world champion Talita Alencar.

  5. Fury Pro Grappling 1: The folks behind Cage Fury Fighting Championship have launched their own grappling offshoot, and it premieres Friday.

  6. Inside Fury vs. Wilder III: Part 1: The absolutely unnecessary trilogy fight of Fury and Wilder is upon us.

  7. UFC 264 Countdown: And we’re on the road to McGregor-Poirier 3.

  8. Enfusion 100: It’s pricey, and bereft of big names, especially for their 100th show, but if you really need your kickboxing fix, Enfusion is back!

  9. UFC Sound Waves: Conor McGregor: In case, for some ungodly reason, you really haven’t heard Conor talk enough.

  10. 2021 Junior European Wrestling Championships: In case you need a wrestling fix.
