LEGEND LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE FIGHT

KOJI ANDO VS. JADAMBA NARANTUNGALAG

(Press Release)Undefeated for almost seven years, Legend Lightweight Champion Jadamba Narantungalag has cemented his status as one of Asia’s top pound-for-pound fighters by defeating elite lightweights such as Akihiro Gono, Adrian Pang, and Nam Yui Chul. But he faces his toughest challenge to date in Japan’s Koji Ando, a ground-and-pound specialist who will be looking to take the Legend Lightweight Title back to Tokyo.

LEGEND BANTAM WEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE FIGHT
LUKE JUMEAU VS. LI JINGLIANG

With former Legend Welterweight Champion Bae Myung Ho recently conscripted for South Korean military service, top contenders Luke Jumeau and Li Jingliang will now battle for the belt. Legend fans will remember Jumeau from his Fight Of The Night bout against Alex Niu at Legend 10 – the sort of performance he will be looking to repeat. And having narrowly lost a decision to Bae in his first attempt at the Legend Title, Li is determined not to let the belt slip through his grasp again.

LEGEND WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE FIGHT
AGUSTIN DELARMINO, JR. VS. JI XIAN

The contest for the Legend Bantamweight Title will see a classic striker vs. grappler battle, as Filipino knockout artist Agustin Delarmino, Jr. squares off against Chinese submission specialist Ji Xian. Delarmino aims to become Legend’s first ever Filipino champion, avenging his brother Leonard’s loss to Ji in the process. But the China Top Team product plans to finish the fight in the same method as nine of his ten victories: by tapping Delarmino out in the first round.

Fallon Fox when she was Boyd “Woody” Burton, situation must be handled delicately

Fallon Fox has taken the mixed martial arts world by storm as of late and added some huge questions to regulatory bodies and promotional big wigs alike.

Questions remain on how the situation will be handled, not just in the United States, but the entire world.  Smaller promotions lack the ability to do proper testing in situations like this and it has likely happened under the radar before.

How should the situation be handled?  Very carefully, is our opinion.  Doctors have chimed in stating that chemically, Fallon Fox is a woman and that her physical make-up is equal to that of a woman, thus she should be able to compete with women.

TMZ got a hold of Fallon Fox’s pre-operation photograph recently showing that before Fox became “Fallon”, and went as far as contacting a past girlfriend who said that Boyd was a “manly man” and had no indication he was uncomfortable with his male self.

The situation needs to be handled very delicately.  This could set a dangerous precedent in the sport and cause for some quite unnecessary backlash in the future.  The Olympic games of the 1980′s had a huge problem with this and finally got it all worked out.  Some athletes that competed in the games were actually y-chromosome positive but were able to compete within the female class.

The promotions that lack regulatory bodies are the promotions that need to be careful.  Severe injury could result if proper testing is not done on these fighters, and as we know, the United States is pretty much the only country that has real testosterone level testing.  Asia has nothing, Japan has nothing, and other countries are spotty at best.  Fighter beware.
