About Fighter Girls
FighterGirls.com was founded on May 6, 2001 by Debi Purcell, a professional Mixed Martial Artist and pioneer for the sport of Women’s MMA. Female Fighting had been slow to start and finding a place amongst the male warriors and earning their respect was a huge undertaking and challenge. Thanks to many people,women have come a long way and you will find us fighting right along side the men in our rightful place.. You are encouraged to look through the site and not only educate yourself on the sport of MMA, but to see that the females are doing their part, to help the sport evolve. FighterGirls.com was originally created to help the women of the sport network with each other and to offer a place for the promoters to find female fighters. This site is dedicated to the female warriors, whether their sport is MMA, Boxing, Kickboxing, Grappling, or Wrestling, all deserve respect and acknowledgment & have a part to play in the evolution of mixed martial arts. To the ladies we thank you for stepping up and going after the dream. SUCCESS at last!
FighterGirls.com also provides a place for movie or TV producers to find females to appear in their shows as agents and producers typically have a hard time finding trained women fighters.
FighterGirls.com has collaborated with FighterGirls Fight Wear to offer a exclusive female fighter line of training apparel from kimonos, to board shorts, rash guards, active wear, boxing gloves, MMA gloves, hand wraps, shin pads, made specially for women by women.
FighterGirls.com was never created to segregate MMA between females and males. We have the utmost respect for the male fighters in this sport. without them we wouldn’t be where we are today We are just trying to make it a bit easier for the girls to be seen, get recognized, interact, & look amazing while doing it.
