Fioravanti Stops Monma

UFC veteran Luigi Fioravanti extended his winning streak to three Friday night as he was able to TKO Hidetaka Monma at 2:31 of the first round.

Luigi Fioravanti Victorious

Last night in Gatineau, Quebec, UFC vet Luigi Fioravanti and Stephan Potvin locked horns in APEX: Evolution. Luigi Fioravanti was able to earn a unanimous decision victory in a fight in which he took on very short notice.

Luigi Fioravanti to Fight in APEX: Evolution

Coming off a decision loss to very tough middleweight Chris Leben, Luigi Fioravanti is set to make his return to the ring against Stephan Potvin in APEX: Evolution.

This should prove to be a very tough fight for UFC vet Luigi Fioravanti. Stephan Potvin is much more experienced then I orginally thought. When looking over his card he has fought the likes of Jeremy Horn, Joe Doersken, Denis Kang, Ronald Jhun and Art Santore. At this point the only notable fighter on Fioravanti’s card is Chris Leben.
