Tonight’s TUF 28 ep 2 preview. Pannie Kianzad vs Katharina Lehner


Episode 2 of TUF 28 goes down tonight and after a heavyweight win by Maurice Greene from Team Gastelum, Team Whittaker look to even the score. This time, however, it will be the women’s featherweights that try to get it done. Katharina Lehner is repping Team Whittaker and Pannie Kianzad is on Team Gastelum.

Katharina Lehner (7-1) is a two-time Invicta FC veteran. The only loss on her record is from her last fight, which was a loss to former Strikeforce bantamweight champion, Sarah Kaufman. Lehner is fighting at featherweight for TUF 28, but she has spent her career at bantamweight.

5-time Invicta FC vet, Pannie Kianzad (10-3), is also a bantamweight who is moving to featherweight for TUF 28. She will try to bring another W to Team Gastelum.

The show airs tonight on FS1 at 10 ET/ 7 PT.

Invicta FC 29

Pearl Gonzales and Barbara Acioly had a bit of a scuffle during the weigh-ins

Tonight the ladies will handle their business in a cage, yesterday they handled it on a scale as they weighed in for Invicta FC 29.  The lone skirmish took place when Pearl Gonzales weighed in and then moved in close to flex on opponent Barbara Acioly. Barbara didn’t like it, and they pushed and Barbara threw a short right hand that landed on Pearl’s neck which was adorned with a large pearl necklace. No damage was done and the ladies were quickly separated.

To add to the drama of that fight, Barbara missed weight and will be fined 25 percent of her purse. Bianca Daimoni also came in heavy and will be fined 25%. Both fights are however still taking place. Both Sarah Kaufman and Katharina Lehner both made weight and their championship fight goes on as planned.  You can see the video below, and the fighters and their weights below that.
