Top featherweights go at it as #5 Unified ranked Julia Budd takes on Danielle West.
Budd is still trying to rack up a win streak, having won three of the five fights she has been in. She has become more of a MMA fighter, having won several of her matches with her wrestling.
West will make her U.S. debut, having racked up a split draw to formerly ranked Rin Nakai. Having lost in a controversial fight with Milana Dudieva, West wanted to re-enter the 145 rankings.
In what could be a atomweight title eliminator bout, Michelle Waterson will take on Lacey Schuckman.
Waterson hasn’t lost a step, defeating Diana Rael in January after a two year absence. Fighting out of Jackson’s MMA, the “Karate Hottie” has already climbed into the 105 ranks at #5.
Schukman is looking to recover from a loss at InvictaFC 2 to Ayaka Hamasaki. She is returning to the atomweight division where she has found success in thge pastl; including a win over Diana Rael.
Two bantamweights hope to stake their claim in the rankings as Raquel Pennington takes on Cat Zingano.
Pennington has become the measuring stick for the undefeated, as she took out Sarah Moras’s unbeaten streak. She has six submission victories in her total MMA career.
The undefeated Cat Zingano is going up in weight to 135, looking to work her way up the rankings and a possable match with Ronda Rousey in Strikeforce.
The BJJ expert has racked up a lot of KO’s as of late, including ones over formerly ranked Carina Damm and Takayo Hashi.
