Legacy Fighting Alliace returns to the Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, MN this Friday night to present LFA 82. The main event pits Contender series star Jamal Pogues (7-2) against undefeated prospect Alex Polizzi (5-0) in a 205 pound LFA Title Fight. Minneapolis featherweight Nate Richardson (7-1) battles unbeaten Jake Childers (7-0) of Illinois in the co-feature. Four other bouts are scheduled to be broadcast on UFC Fight Pass. But it is an un-televised 145 pound undercard bout between Saint Cloud, Minnesota’s Angel Pacheco (2-0) and Felipe Martinez Donis (1-0) of Arcadia, Wisconsin that has many fans anticipating fight of the night on a stacked card including matchmaker Jeremy Bjornberg.
“We are very excited for this show” said Bjornberg. “I don’t know as much about the main-event fighters but every other fight is a pick em! I love the upcoming amateurs we are featuring and so many top young prospects getting their chance to succeed on this level will be great for Mystic Lake and UFC Fight Pass. With that said, my favorite fight so far is Felipe vs. Angel. It’s going to be a war!”
Donis and Pacheco earned praise after making names for themselves as amateurs and now early as pros. Each plan on using Friday night’s fight to make another statement on the big LFA stage. Pacheco trains out of Start BJJ in Saint Cloud, MN. He says he got into mixed martial arts at the age of 13 after watching Yves Edwards knockout Josh Thomson with a jumping head kick in 2004 (WATCH VIDEO ). Pacheco told MNFN that the biggest win of his career came last November when he won the Driller Promotions Featherweight title in dominant fashion over tough as nails Sam Hernandez and looks to one-up that victory this Friday night.
“I had a great camp with head coach Brock Larson and my other coaches Joe Dedrick and Chaz Haag” said Pacheco. Those guys make sure I am prepared and my team at Start BJJ. I could not ask for a better group of people around me to prepare.”
“I know my opponent is well rounded with an unbeaten record as an amateur and a professional” Pacheco continued. “He is primarily a wrestler. I feel he will try and grind out a decision win. The fans should expect me to push the pace from round one until the end of round three but I feel I will get the finish in the second round via strikes.”
Felipe Martinez Donis was born in Guatemala before his family made the journey to the US (). Training out of Ironworks Training Center in Wisconsin, Martinez-Donis has a good wrestling background with an eye on ending fights inside the distance as well. Six out of his eight career fights for the undefeated fighter have ended with a finish.
” I am beyond excited to be on this show” said Martinez Donis following a training session. “As I sit here in the cage, I am thinking that I just want to give the fans what they are expecting that night. I want to go out there and prove that I am ready to take on anything. I don’t smoke but I want all this smoke man! I’m ready to run this division (145 pounds). There are some tough opponents out there. Angel Pacheco is one of them. I just want to fight. I am really excited to get out there on Friday and do what I’ve been training to do.”
“I expect him (Pacheco) to come out there with everything he’s got. I hope he’s expecting me to come out with everything I’ve got. I’m going to try to push myself for this fight because I don’t even think I am aware of what I’m capable of. I want to test that on Friday night. It’s going to be a great night!”
The LFA 82 fighters will weigh-in this afternoon at Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, MN. The undercard action will begin at 5 PM on Friday with the Main Card beginning at 8 PM.

The latest in our cult heroes series sees Mark Armstrong reflect on how the ‘little Spaniard’ helped rid the club of the ‘little Norwich City’ tag
Having covered Norwich City on and off for the best part of 15 years I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in several promotion campaigns.
The Canaries are one of the most interesting ‘beats’ you could wish for as a reporter. Rarely has a season passed without drama when promotion or relegation has been on the line.
Supporters, and reporters for that matter, can often fall into a trap where the most recent success feels even better than the last one. This is not to take anything away from the wonderful job Daniel Farke did in masterminding promotion on a shoestring budget or even what Alex Neil did in galvanising an under-performing bunch of players in 2015 and taking them on a roller-coaster that would end in Wembley glory.
But, for me, the most memorable promotion was that of the Paul Lambert side of 2010-11. Let’s forget what happened thereafter (you might have noticed it’s not gone great for him since leaving Carrow Road…) because whatever else he has done since, he ridded Norwich City of their inferiority complex.
‘Little old Norwich City’ was no more. Under his stewardship the Canaries suddenly felt like a big fish in the Championship, despite having found themselves in League One the season before.
Towards the end of the 2010/11 season, Lambert and City were even entrusted with helping develop the talent of a certain Dani Pacheco – once seen as the future of the Spanish national side.
Having recently won Euro 2008 and the World Cup in 2010, Spain were the nation everyone wanted to copy and when City were able to get the player on loan from Liverpool in March 2011 for the rest of the season it felt like a real coup.
‘We Are Massive’ was all City fans were talking about and to get a mercurial player like Pacheco felt like a big deal.
The then 20-year-old appeared to just appreciate the chance to get some game time, knowing that in the parlous state Liverpool were in at the time there was a chance to show at Carrow Road that he was worthy of a future on Merseyside.
Liverpool was a very different beast compared to the one that seemed destined for the Premier League title this season until the coronavirus pandemic intervened.
Fenway Sports Group (FSG) had recently bought the club amid much acrimony after the disastrous spell of Tom Hicks and George Gillett, who almost bankrupted the club.
‘Moneyball’ was the new buzzword where statistics and analytics would be used to determine the success of players and their recruitment strategy.
It offered a clean slate to a player like Pacheco, who had been deprived of first team opportunities under Rafa Benitez after signing from Barcelona in 2007.
When Lambert unleashed Pacheco for his Norwich debut he produced a matador-like performance in the 6-0 win over Scunthorpe. After setting up the first two goals he would later leave the field to a standing ovation and a bond with the Canaries’ faithful had been firmly established.
Pacheco maintained that relationship with supporters from that moment and at a time when players were just starting to use social media, he proved himself adept at showing he cared about Norwich. The little Spaniard helped change the stigma that loan players were merely guns for hire, an idea which firmly took root during Glenn Roeder’s time in charge at Carrow Road.
After the demolition of Scunthorpe, Pacheco would go on to make only another five appearances for City but his cult status was secured in scoring the final goal in the 5-1 win over Ipswich Town at Portman Road. His other goal in Norwich colours came on the final day of the season in the 2-2 draw with Coventry.
The following summer there was much speculation that Pacheco would come back to Norfolk, but he decided to take his chances at establishing himself under Kenny Dalglish at Anfield.
However, the cult of Pacheco lived on… several transfer windows would pass before fans stopped seeing him as the answer to Norwich’s creative issues at one time or another, helped by the fact he would regularly post about the Canaries on Twitter.
After loan spells at Rayo Vallecano and Huesca he would permanently sign for Alcorcan in 2013 before moving on to Real Betis the following summer.
He went on to play for Alaves and Getafe and the 29-year-old is currently plying his trade in the Segunda Division with Malaga.
Perhaps his career might have gone down a different path had he decided to sign for City permanently… or perhaps, in the tradition of the best performers he was wise to leave fans wanting more.

— Dr Raul Pacheco-Vega (@raulpacheco) February 28, 2014
I operate with my doctoral pupils coming from the assumption that there are actually at minimum 3 publishable write-ups that can be distilled from their treatise. My present students are doing papers-based theses, yet I additionally have actually mentored those who write whole entire books. The absolute most essential point to always remember is what DOCTOR Pat Thomson suggests listed below: there are numerous, several methods which you may slice your doctoral argumentation.
Listed here are a handful of sources I discovered on exactly how to acquire articles out of the dissertation. Through and large, Pat’s weblog message is actually the best as well as very most detailed.
I assume the essential concern is actually– what are actually the three very most important payments that I can distil as SPECIFIC units and also could be published separately without being in sequence or appear together? When you respond to that concern, you can easily start writing the diary post (with assistance coming from Wendy Belcher or even Barbara Kamler/Pat Thomson, certainly).

This administration must make certain principles as well as compliance are actually embedded right into the foundation of every brand-new innovation job to be deployed.
Monitor and measure to enhance
Technologies like blockchain, connectivity, location-based solutions, RFID and NFC allow you to substantially track your source and value chains. Tension on companies to decrease ecological influence will certainly develop consecutively going forward. Also that this assets might penalize your balance piece on year zero, refuse decline will directly equate in to expense savings.
Modern technology offers a good deal of options for lowering environmental influence as well as prices. AI as well as IoT are still evolving and also will deliver numerous possibilities to minimize impact, refuse and cost when tactically put on the worth chain. Quantum computing, which is actually becoming extra on call to industry as well as academic community, will definitely help deal with numerous complicated problems that earlier have been deposited.

‘I made the adult film I wish I had seen when I was becoming sexually active,’ director says.
LOS ANGELES—As he documented in a one-person performance piece almost a decade ago, Gordon B grew up the son of one of the top stars of porn’s Golden Age, Richard Pacheco. But some of his fondest memories of life with his dad involve a father-son activity that appears to have little to do with the adult industry.
“I grew up going to estate sales and yard sales with my dad,” Gordon B recalled, in an email interview with AVN. “My dad was always on the hunt for the most random collection of things to make art with which he would begin doing as soon as we got home.”
But when Gordon made his debut as an adult film director, the affection for estate sales, rummaging through the memories of other people’s lives, offered the inspiration for his first work. His short film Estate Sale Pleasure Hunt premiered online last week, via Erika Lust’s XConfessions site, where it is now available for viewing by new and existing subscribers.
He found inspiration for that direction in the work of Erika Lust, “both her artistry and her politics.”
“My goal is to join a movement of artists making beautiful and intelligent adult cinema that arouses while being anti-patriarchal and anti-racist,” Gordon says. “And I believe this can’t be done without representation of women and people of color both in front of and behind the camera.”
For Gordon, that process of representation began with making sure the production had “as many women of color in positions of creative control as possible,” and requiring that all cast and crew members sign a document acknowledging that “any racist acts or comments, or sexual harassment of any kind” would lead to dismissal from the project.
“It was the artistry and creative co-leadership of the amazing women behind the camera that made this work possible,” Gordon says, naming on-set producer Lotus Lain — a performer and sex-worker rights activist — as the reason the production was able to keep “moving along.”
