The biggest MMA event this week is UFC on Fuel TV 4. The action is tomorrow night and if you want to bet on the fights you can read through our predictions and then head over to Americas Bookie. On the weekend Strikeforce is back in action and the fight card should have several fights on it that offer bettors some value.
Rockhold and Kennedy will be fighting in the main event at Strikeforce although there are some other great fights. Marquardt is in the co-main event and will be fighting Tyron Woodley. There should be some KO’s in Strikeforce this weekend and the card is definitely a card that you don’t want to miss out on. The Strikeforce event can be bet on as well this weekend.
The other MMA events on this weekend will be great to watch some upcoming talent. On Sunday there are two events in Japan taking place and next week will kick-off with a few Japanese MMA events. The weekend is packed with action and if you live in the USA you should be able to find a fight close to you this weekend if you want to watch some live MMA fights.
Brazilians will be able to watch Shooto: Brazil 32 on Saturday. Overall this week is one of the better weeks this summer, as there are several big promotions hosting events plus numerous smaller events. We’re going to start running the “This Week in MMA” feature on the MMA section at ATB, so make sure you bookmark this section of the website.
Thursday is the only day this week that fans have odd. On Friday Matrix Fights 6 will draw a big crowd, but another event that I’m interested I hearing about is the Ignite Fighting Championship 1. IFC1 is taking place in Amarillo, Texas and the fight card has nine fights on it, so make sure you get tickets if you’re in Amarillo this weekend.
