Two of MMA’s top 135-pound female fighters will collide in a five-round title fight at Jackson’s MMA Series 4 on April 9th in Albuquerque, New Mexico. 2007 HOOKnSHOOT Women’s Grand Prix Champion Kaitlin Young will face well-rounded veteran Julie “Fireball” Kedzie in a featured bout on the card. |
Both fighters recently took part in the ill-fated Ultimate Women Challenge reality show competition last year, though results from the fights that took place during filming have yet to be released. The bout between Young and Kedzie will determine the first Jackson’s MMA Series Women’s Champion.
Young (4-4-0)* opened her career with four devastating knockout wins, including a victory over current Strikeforce title challenger Miesha “Takedown” Tate, and captured the one-night HOOKnSHOOT title on November 24, 2007. However, she suffered defeats in each of her next four fights, with one loss coming at the hands of Gina “Conviction” Carano on a CBS-televised EliteXC card in 2008. Last January, she entered the Freestyle Cage Fighting Women’s Grand Prix, but fell victim to a second-round armbar from Jennifer “Rosebud” Tate in the quarterfinals.
Glad to see Young getting back in the cage. I like both of the fighter but I really home young wins I want to see her get back on track.
