Shogun Fights XXIV
April 11, 2020 - 6:30PM
The East Coast’s Premier MMA Organization
The brain-child of John Rallo, Shogun fights regularly packs several of the largest venues in the region including Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, The Theater at MGM National Harbor and Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Ft Lauderdale. A hotbed for celebrities and UFC stars, Shogun events will continue to be a Baltimore mainstay for a time to come.
With a successful (albeit short) MMA career and stint as a celebrity bodyguard under his belt, working with the likes of Tommy Lee and Sylvester Stallone, Rallo focused on opening a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy after receiving his blackbelt from Renzo Gracie himself. During this time he worked towards legalizing MMA in the state of Maryland, eventually passing legalization in one session – an unheard of feat with new legislature. With the arena wide-open, Rallo has spent years promoting shows and building a roster of packed talent, with several fighters going to the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Dana White’s Contender Series and PFL amongst others.

- Video: Andrei Arlovski feared he would be cut after loss to Tom Aspinallby MMA Fighting Newswire on April 17, 2021 at 9:00 pm
UFC heavyweight Andrei Arlovski speaks with reporters ahead of his short notice fight with Chase Sherman at UFC Vegas 24 and discussed how the fight came together, frustrations with his submission loss to Tom Aspinall, his fear that he would be cut from the UFC after the loss, if he knew who Sherman was, and more.
- Video: Lupita Godinez ‘honored’ to fight Jessica Penne in octagon debut at UFC Vegas 24by MMA Fighting Newswire on April 17, 2021 at 8:00 pm
Lupita Godinez has envisioned getting the UFC call for quite some time. Little did she know she wouldn’t be able to enjoy it. Godinez (5-0) is stepping in as a short notice replacement to face Jessica Penne this Saturday at UFC Vegas 24. The strawweight bout will take place at the APEX and will be Penne’s first in nearly four years. “Loopy” earned her opportunity after capturing the LFA strawweight title in a majority decision victory over Contender Series alum Vanessa Demopolous at October’s LFA 94. The Canadian fighter had to leave her home country the day after getting the call and headed out to Denver to train with Elevation Fight Team ahead of the bout. The 27-year-old spoke with MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck about the hectic road it has been since receiving the call to face Penne, talks feeling confident the opportunity would come after beating Demopoulos, thoughts on the matchup with Penne, having nearly her entire career—from amateur to now—take place since Penne last competed, how she plans to introduce to UFC fans, and having very little interest in the upcoming boxing match between Jake Paul and Ben Askren.
