Friday

MMA Flag
Kilistina Makihele vs Jozette Cotton
DCS 13: Next Level, Omaha, Nebraska, United States

Awakening’s comments: A potentially thrilling 170lbs match-up between two unbeaten fighters. Makihele, aka Demon Hands is a Tongan born fighter living in Utah with a pro record of 1-0-0 and an amateur record also at 1-0-0. Both of her fights which took place last year were stopped via TKO and KO in round 1. Another point of interest is that she is 41 years young!  Her opponent on the other hand is 26 year old Cotton from Nebraska.  Also known as The #1 Headbuster, her professional record is an impressive 5-0-0, and her amateur record stood at 2-0-0.  Four of her fights have been won via TKO and KO.  This looks like a very exciting match up.

DCS 13: Next Level, Omaha, Nebraska, United States

Saturday

Boxing Flag
Sari Kuutsa Kettunen vs Daniella Éltető (D)
Lapinlahti, Finland

Awakening’s comments: A Welterweight bout to be fought over 4×2.  Finn fighter Kettunen, 35, will be looking to continue her win streak at 1-0-0. She faces Hungarian Éltető, 19, more commonly known as The Machine. Éltető will be making her professional boxing debut. This is a fight that we will be doing everything we can to find a stream for, Éltető will be making a transition from an incredibly successful Muay Thai / Kickboxing career where she currently holds a record of 42-2-0. She also holds a string of titles in four differrent disciplines. It’s a shame that we currently don’t have any additional information on Kettunen.

Boxing Flag
Daniela Romina Bermudez vs Vanesa Lorena Taborda
Poldeportivo Municipal, Necochea, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Awakening’s comments: A 10×2 Super Flyweight title bout in which Bermudez defends her WBO World Female Super Flyweight title for the first time. Her boxing record currently stands at 16-3-2, and at the age of 25 she has also won the WBO World Bantamweight title and interim WBA Super Flyweight and Bantamweight titles. Her opponent is Taborda who’s record currently stands at 8-2-0. She is also the current WBC Latino Flyweight Champion. This will be a good fight!

MMA Flag
Miesha Tate vs Sara McMann
UFC 183: Silva vs. Diaz, MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

Awakening’s comments: Do we need to say anything about this fight? Its most likely going to be fight of the month and most of you would agree! Let’s go through the motions here however, Tate is currently on a two fight win streak and has a record of 15-5-0, whilst wrestling guru McMann, 8-1-0 will be looking to add to her last victory over Lauren Murphy and continue a win streak of her own. Can’t WAIT for this fight!

This fight is our weeks’ top pick!Awards
