In the middle of it all is Atomweight Paulina Granados, who will fight in the first professional female MMA fight in the history of the state of New York.

With the city buzzing and all eyes on her, Pualina understands the magnitude of this fight. “That feels really cool. Like somebody asked me ‘O, how does it feel? You are going to make history.’ I had no idea what they were talking about. I was like ‘Wait, were the first pro MMA fights there?’ ‘And they were like, ya.’ That’s really really cool. I never think about stuff like that, but ya know. That’s like a big deal. I’m really stoked Combate is letting me be apart of this, it’s like a huge deal. Ya know?”
