Heavy action from the regional circuit this weekend, which includes embattled featherweight George Sotiropoulos's first fight outside the UFC in over seven years and the the continuing adventures of Minowaman.

Your weekly rundown of high-profile fights from the regional circuit.
First up this week we have Trevor Prangley, who possesses probably one of the most heroic chins in MMA this side of Urijah Faber. Prangley (33-10-1, 2-2 UFC, 3-3-1 Strikeforce, 0-1 Bellator) headlined King of the Cage: Steadfast last Thursday, where he successfully defended his title against Jared Torgeson (15-12-0).

Your weekly look into high-profile fight results from the regional MMA circuit.

Your weekly look at what big-show veterans and notable journeymen are up to on the regional circuit. Ben Fodor, brother to Strikeforce and UFC veteran Caros Fodor, has likely made more headlines than anyone else fighting this weekend, despite having yet to make a major promotional debut. A costumed-crime-fighter alter-ego will do that for a guy.
