November Notes

  • None

#1 -- Robert Watley (8-1)

The LFA lightweight champion defends his title on Nov. 10th against Daryl Wilson.

#2 -- Lowen Tynanes (9-0)

If "Tynanes" doesn't ring a bell, that's probably because he's fought his last three fights for ONE Championship overseas. The 26-year-old Hawaiian fighter has only gone the distance twice in his career and boasts four wins by submission. He's coming off a unanimous decision victory over Koji Ando at ONE Championship: Global Rivals in April 2016.

#3 – Thai Clark (7-0)

Clark was missed off last month’s list and one of two fighters in the Top 5 with an undefeated record. The 28-year-old went 9-1 as an amateur and has fought primarily for the Kansas City based Evolution Fighting Championship promotion.  Clark last fought in Oct. 2016 where he earned a first-round submission win over Jesus Adame at EFC 4.

#4 -- Austin Arnett (15-3)

The Washington State native Arnett had his 13-fight winning streak snapped in his last bout, suffering a unanimous decision loss to Brandon Davis on August 1. The setback was Arnett's first loss since November 2013. "Golden Boy" has 12 career wins by stoppage.

#5 -- Trey Ogden (9-1)

Ogden is coming off a first-round submission victory over TJ Brown at LFA 21, pushing his winning streak to seven straight. The 27-year-old boasts seven wins by submission and has only gone the distance twice in his career.
