OK, it's been a minute ... or many, many minutes ... since we've been active here at Minnesota MMA News. But we've come out of hibernation to break down a very special event coming to Mystic Lake Casino on Friday. We knew you all missed us, so we're back in action, taking an in-depth look at LFA 41.

This will be the second LFA event inside Mystic Lake's new "Minnetonka Ballroom," and from top to bottom, it just might be LFA's best-ever Minnesota event. So, let's get after it. We'll break down each fight, with quotes from matchmaker Jeremy Bjornberg, and of course, your favorite gadfly "Hawkeye Fighter" is ready to offer up his predictions for this mega-event at Mystic.

The skinny — Doors opens at 5 p.m. Fights will begin at 5:30 p.m., with the main, televised portion of the card set to begin at 8 p.m. The main card will be carried live on AXS-TV. A handful of ticket still remain online (click the link in the header of this page for tickets, or contact any participating fighter) and there are expected to be a few seats available during the day Friday.

OK, it's time ... let's go!!

AMATEUR UNDERCARD (5:30 p.m.)

MARIO GOMEZ VS DANIEL SORIANO

WEIGHT: 125.

RECORDS: Gomez is 0-1, Soriano 1-1.

FIGHTING OUT OF: Both fighter are from Minnesota; Gomez trains in Sleepy Eye with the Fight Squad, and Soriano is at Warrior's Cove.

BJORNBERG'S THOUGHTS: "This should be a good banger to get the night started. All the Fight Squad guys come to fight; I don't think anyone from that crew has ever been in a boring fight. Gomez hits very hard, and he's fearless. Soriano can bang, too. I think both of these guys will come in looking for a knockout, and that's usually a recipe for an exciting fight. It should get the crowd going."

HAWKEYE FIGHTER PREDICTION: Them hands gonna fly, but I think Soriano catches him late in the second round for a submission W.

JOEY HART VS NICK RAHN

WEIGHT: 170.

RECORDS: Hart is 2-1-1, while Rahn is 4-1.

FIGHTING OUT OF: Both fighters are from Minnesota; Hart moves around for training but is based in Willmar, while Rahn trains at The Cellar.

BJORNBERG'S THOUGHTS: "One of my favorite fights on the undercard. Nick Rahn gets better every time he's in there. He's pretty solid all-around; he's comfortable on the ground or on the feet. And
