I agree that's a good #1 contender fight Copeland vs alencar

Now that both contracts have been signed, Tony Lopez (47-24) will be defending his KOTC Heavyweight Title against Josh Parisian (5-1) on April 29th in Wyandotte, Michigan. Josh isn't very well known around these parts but i've been watching his career since he turned pro and has gotten better with every fight. A win against a legend like Tony would be huge for his career and getting that KOTC belt wouldn't hurt either.
Adam Wieczorek was signed by the UFC this week.
Cool another fresh HW in the division - don't know much about him though, any good?
He's good. He could be a dark horse candidate for a top 10 heavy. Very well rounded, explosive, lots of power. In terms of style, he kind of reminds me of Alexei Olyiniek, but younger and more athletic.
Not sure how he'll do once he steps up in competition, or goes against massive 280 pounders, but the potential is there from his fights in Poland.
Nice, hopefully they throw him a bone for his debut, someone like Chase Sherman if he isn't getting cut. If it's someone coming off a win, I guess someone like Walt Harris.
Very good signing by UFC - nice of them to sign a decent prospect under 30!
Wessel Mostert stopped Tony Mustard via 1st round TKO.
Good win, that leaves 4 fighters in EFC's heavyweight division that would contend for the title. Potts, as inconsistent as he can be, will probably beat Etherington next month. So I think they'll do Potts vs Van Zyl 4 for the title, and Elvis Moyo vs Mostert for the next shot. That's what I would do anyways, give Mostert another fight to get experience before the title shot, meanwhile Van Zyl needs to prove he's the more improved fighter by getting one of his loses back from Potts.
There was a free and legal EFC stream but it was terrible and unwatchable(TPF 17* bad) I heard Moyo picked up a brutal KO though. Moyo's actually one of the best boxers in MMA, certainly the HW division.
That's going to be the fight that gets Josh some eyes on him, if he beats Lopez he'll jump past that first step as a regional heavy. Lopez is tricky though, he's beat lots of good fighters due to inexperience.
Yeah Moyo is deadly on the feet. I think pairing him with Mostert will give Wessell a challenge before a title fight, he needs to kickbox or get the fight to the ground or else he'll go to sleep. If he doesn't get tested, he won't have that experience to draw from when fighting for and possibly defending a title.
Just a side note... If you look at the opposition Moyos faced as a boxer.. His record is A LOT more impressive than someone like Maldanados which is the textbook definition of a padded record. The reason I'm bringing this up is because his record is often brought up on here as evidence that he was an accomplished boxer.
I had two guys tell me that he was a deadly boxer because of it. Shit was laughable.

Sounds like Pesta got cut, not too surprising imo.
Sherman, Smolyakov, and De La Rosa have to be close as well with the performances they put on.
Sherman and Smolyakov are on a similar timeline to Pesta so I can see them being released in the coming weeks. DLR, however, hasn't fought for ages so unless he's quietly been released or retired (he's fucking old), I wouldn't be surprised if that slugfest against Milstead earned him one more shot.
Kharitonov vs. TBA is the main event of M-1 event in China (happens at June 15th).
