Well Sherbro's, there's A LOT going on this week ... several amazing combat sports events.
I figured it might be difficult to get a hold of such a busy fight-schedule, so lean back, and let me walk you through the fantastic fightweek that's in front of us! :cool:

The most noteworthy events in chronological order:


PFL Paris: Cédric Doumbé vs Baki

The Professional Fighters League returns to Paris and makes its debut at the Accor Arena. Unbeaten French star and the former GLORY Welterweight champion Cédric ‘The Best’ Doumbé (5-0, 5 KO/TKO) will headline against the undefeated Judo-specialist Baissangour "Baki" Chamsoudinov (8-0, 3 KO/TKO) in an all-French superstar matchup.
In the co-main event, former Ares FC double-champ "Lazy King" Abdoul Abdouraguimov will take on British veteran Jack Grant.

The event takes place on Thursday March 7 and starts at 11am ET / 8am PT / 17:00 CET (main-card is FREE to watch in the USA).

Boxing "Knockout Chaos": Anthony Joshua vs Francis Ngannou

Anthony Joshua and Francis Ngannou are set to headline the “Knockout Chaos” Boxing-event set to go down at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh. The weight of expectation is heavy on the former UFC Heavyweight champion his shoulders following an exemplary showcase against Tyson Fury in his maiden boxing assignment in December 2023. Meanwhile, the former WBO, IBF and WBA Boxing-Heavyweight champion "AJ" looks to win his fourth straight contest to set up a potential Undisputed title-fight against the winner of Oleksandr Usyk vsTyson Fury, which goes down on May 18.
Also on the card are two spectacular Heavyweight-bangers between Zhilei Zhang & Joseph Parker and Justis Huni & Kevin Lerena, and much more action.

The event takes place on Friday March 8 and starts at 11am ET / 8am PT / 17:00 CET.

GLORY Heavyweight Grand Prix

This Saturday, GLORY Kickboxing will organize (and reintroduce) the historic 8-man one-night Heavyweight Grand Prix, with the likes of “King of Kickboxing” Rico Verhoeven, Tariq "Cookie" Osaro, Bahram Rajabzadeh, Levi Rigters, and more. The winner will walk away with $500,000 and the prestigious GP Trophy, just like in the good old K-1 days.
The event takes place at the GelreDome football stadium in Arnhem, the Netherlands, and also features two exciting title fights. Donegi Abena will look to unify his Light-heayweight championship against Interim champion Tarik Khbabez, and Tyjani Beztati will try to defend his Lightweight title for the fifth time, when he takes on number-1-contender and former ONE Championship standout Enriko Kehl.

The event takes place on Saturday March 9 and starts at 12pm ET / 9am PT / 18:00 CET (FREE to watch in the USA).

UFC 299: Sean O'Malley vs Marlon Vera

Allright, I think this one doesn't need a write-up, lol :)
Truly amazing event. Some would argue that its even better than UFC 300, and I can't wait to find out this weekend!
On Saturday I will attend the GLORY Heavyweight Grand Prix with my big and little brother, and when we get home UFC 299 should just be getting underway, so that will be one hell of a night (IF I can stay awake though, lol, but I guess I will. And if so, I will see you'all in the PBP to catch the violence live).

The event takes place on Saturday March 9 on 6pm ET / 3pm ET / 00:00 CET (Sunday).

There's no PBP-Thread yet, but I expect @Jackonfire to be on it, like always ;)

And I’m probably gonna get to watch none of them 😭 happy to be busy but hate that I’m missing a stellar weekend of fights live.
 
It's hard for non-french people to understand how Big, how much hype there is for Baki vs Doumbe. Been fan of the sport since 2005 and it's crazy how a non UFC fight can bring so much hype here.
 
Yeah that's pretty insane.

LOL @ Joshua vs Ngannou being an extra 25€ on top of a DAZN subscription. No way.

Will try to watch as much of the rest as possible though.
