WOMEN TAKE FIRST STEPS INTO WARPATH MMA RING
Opportunities for Women MMA Fighters Exploding
WarPath MMA IX is scheduled Friday, March 8th, 2013 at 8pm to be held at the beautiful Squiala Community Hall, at 45005 Squiala Road (near the Eagle Landing Centre) in Chilliwack, BC. WarPath MMA supports amatuer martial arts athletes by providing an opportunity to fight safely and fairly. With the growing number of partnerships and relationships being built in the Fraser Valley, WarPath MMA is proud to advance the sport of MMA and advance the lives and careers of so many young athletes, especially for two young ladies – Lynnell House from fighting out of the Roux/House Fight Team in Red Deer Alberta and Susy Watson from Mamba MMA from Abbotsford. These ladies are squaring off at 130lbs, bringing with them as much skill and determination to make to the UFC as our lother local athletes .
In fact, Watson is quickly working her way into the international MMA scene by signing a multi-fight deal with Super Fight League, the biggest promotion in India. Her last test before heading East is Lynnell House. House is an explosive young First Nation female fighter that has been training since she was teenager. WarPath MMA fans do not want to miss this one.
