10 March Tussles Worth Watching

8. Victor Valimaki vs. Jordan Radev
Fight Festival 25, March 14 -- Helsinki, Finland

Two UFC veterans will lock horns in Finland’s capital city. Since being released by Zuffa, Valimaki (13-5) has won four straight. The Edmonton, Alberta, native holds some big wins over Jason Day, Vernon White and Rodney Glunder. Radev (17-3), a stocky Bulgarian wrestler, will try to decode the “Matrix” with excellent top control and a dangerous submission game.

7. Branden Lee Hinkle vs. Chris Tuchscherer
Beatdown at 4 Bears “Hinkle vs. Tuchscherer,” March 21 -- New Town, N.D.

Midwestern fight fans should consider the trip to the tiny college city in North Dakota if they want to see some decent heavyweight action in their area. Three-time UFC veteran Hinkle will return from a 20-month hiatus to take on the once defeated Tuchscherer (15-1) -- one of Brock Lesnar’s sparring partners at the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy. Tuchscherer raised more than a few eyebrows with his strong performance in the ill-conceived Yamma Pit Fighting tournament. A convincing victory over the experienced Hinkle (14-9) could put him one step closer to the big leagues.
