Combat Press Mid-Week Report – Feb. 24, 2015

Thanks for tuning in to this edition of the Combat Press Mid-Week Report. In this episode, staff writers Riley Kontek and Wayne Dumas will preview this weekend’s MMA action, discuss this week’s big news stories and much more!

What did the UFC have in store for us in Brazil at UFC Fight Night 61 over the weekend? What does Frank Mir’s win do for his career at this point? We run down the craziness of a night of upsets that surely killed a ton of people’s predictions.

Looking forward, we look at a giant weekend for women’s MMA. UFC 184 hosts a bantamweight title bout between Ronda Rousey and Cat Zingano. Will Rousey continue her dominance or can Zingano spoil the party against one of the UFC’s biggest stars?


Plus, what will go down in the Invicta organization on the back of a main event involving Cris “Cyborg” Justino?

As Bellator’s card limps to the finish, how will that card fare? Can Paul Daley, Emanuel Newton and company perform and make Bellator a card to watch, or will it fall flat?

We’ll answer these questions and more on this edition of the Combat Press Mid-Week Report!
