The Ultimate Women’s Challenge fiasco is still ongoing, but at least we can officially tell you who won.
The failed reality show featured several pro fighters; including a battle between Kaitling Young and Julie Kedzie. Yael Grauer of Fightergirls and the defunct MMAHQ has been covering the story since day one; and worked diligently to get the fight results from the show released. She got permission to officially release the results from the Utah’s Athletic Commission this week; which was posted on her blog.
The fights happened at the Dixie Center in St. George, Utah Sept. 24, 2010.
- Michelle Ould and Karina Taylor was ruled a no contest due to Taylor gouging Ould in the eyes. Ould could not continue.
- Patricia Vidonic def. Martha Benavides by decision (29-28 all cards).
- Angela Magana def. Barb Honchak by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28).
- Angela Hayes def Brandi Hainey via submission (guillotine choke) 2:37 2nd round.
- Casey Noland def. Colleen Schneider via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27)
- Kaitlin Young def. Julie Kedzie by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28).
There are still unresolved issues in terms of the fighters (or crew for that matter) not being paid and missing footage. We will keep you updated in the year ahead.
