Welcome to the latest edition of Missed Fists where Jed Meshew and Alexander K. Lee shine a light on fights from across the globe that may have been overlooked in these hectic times where it seems like theres an MMA show every other day.
No UFC this past weekend? No Bellator? (No Jed?) No problem. There were still plenty of fights to watch and were going tri-continental this week, hitting up a pair of back-and-forth battles from the Legacy Fighting Alliance and Absolute Championship Berkut promotions, and a couple of vicious knockouts from Indias Super Fight League.
