Las Vegas, NV - August 11, 2015 - - The curtains had barely been drawn on last Saturday's Lingerie Fighting Championships 20: A Midsummer Night's Dream before MMA pundits were calling it a game-changer for the popular women's league. Publications ranging from The Zoo (Australia) to The Telegraph (U.K.) to Sports Illustrated covered the event which took place in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel. A record LFC audience witnessed 8 bouts featuring 16 beautiful women fighting in nothing but lingerie.
"Never mind what they were wearing," LFC's Chief Executive Officer Shaun Donnelly said, "these were some of the most entertaining fights you'll see anywhere."
The event was broadcast live on PPV on more than 1000 cable and satellite systems across North America including AT&T, Bell, Brighthouse, CableVision, Charter, Comcast, Cox, DirectTV, Dish, Rogers, Shaw, TimeWarner and Verizon.
Lingerie Fighting Championships, Inc. (OTCQB:BOTY) has put a unique spin on MMA that has captured the imagination of audiences. Each event has out-sold the one prior and the level of competition seems to be improving with every outing.
"It's hard to point to just one match Saturday and say that was the stand-out," Donnelly says. "They were all really intriguing. I think cable systems and fans alike are starting to realize what an entertaining product LFC is."
LFC20 featured four women making their professional MMA debuts, including 20 year old Chloe ‘Ladykillah' Cameron, a bikini model from San Diego. Four others made their LFC debuts, including Shelly ‘Aphrodite' DaSilva who had honed her skills in South America. LFC favorites Sheila ‘Crash' Cardinal, MaiNe ‘Main Event' Morgan and Riley ‘Nuclear' Norris returned while bruising LFC champion Feather ‘The Hammer' Hadden put her belt on the line against Salt Lake City's Vivian ‘The Valkyrie' Voss in a very entertaining main event.
"We're very excited with the direction things are going," Donnelly said following the contest. "World class venue, live television, beautiful fighters... What's not to love?"
Lingerie Fighting Championships 20: A Midsummer Night's Dream will be re-run on VOD on most cable and satellite systems. Full photos gallery here.
