“We are happy that thanks to good cooperation between LFN and KSW, this year we will be able to watch Katarzyna Lubońska in Ladies Fight Night. KSW agreed for the fighter to cooperate with our organisation for one year. This is promising and we are proud that such a talented MMA fighter has joined our LFN Team. In early April come to another exciting gala, where Kasia will fight against Vuokko Katainen,” says Łukasz Chmal, President, Ladies Fight Night.
Katarzyna Lubońska’s (4-2-0) opponent is returning to the cage after a year and a half break. The Finn Vuokko Katainen (3-3-1) underwent a shoulder operation and a long rehabilitation. Today she is a better fighter than before the injury, she claims. The fifth Ladies Fight Night gala will be held in Poznań on Saturday, 8th April. More details coming soon!

Thor Palsson (2-0) will be seeking his third straight professional victory as he enters the cage at FightStar Championship 9, but the story is not that simple. This will be a rematch with Alan Procter (0-1), who landed an intentional illegal knee to the downed Mjolnir MMA fighter in the last outing.
“Neither one of us was happy with the way things went last time around. Winning a fight after eating an illegal knee is not a victory that any self respecting fighter is happy about and I´m grateful to the FightStar Championship and to Alan for getting this sorted out.”
The bout against Procter will once again go down with the FightStar Championship promotion on their 9th event in London on April 22nd. You can watch their first fight from last December here.
