  1. My; I wonder what the requirements are for the women’s FW division. I guess if you have a pulse, you’re eligible. Kailin Young hasn’t had a win in WMMA since early 2012. Hopefully here record in kickboxing has been more favorable.

    1. Requirements were 3 first gets with a winning record but exceptions have been made in the past. Kaitlin would have been a good reason for one

  2. I’m not saying Young would not be a good reason for an exception, but I am curious that given that she hasn’t had a win in WMMA since January 2012, what makes you think she is? Any idea as to why Kelly Clayton at 0-1, would be granted an exception as well?
