Fighter Elaina Maxwell knows what she wants out of the MMA world. Having been a three time San Sho champion and making her transition into women’s MMA, Maxwell has trained with Cung Le for several years before making the jump to Xtreme Couture this past year.
Maxwell was on the March 22 edition of Blog Talk Radio and was asked who she wants to fight next, there is only one fighter she had in mind, Emily Thompson.
The undefeated Thompson has three wins under her belt and Maxwell sees her as a challenge she’s like to take on. But getting a fight with Thompson has been allusive, according to Maxwell.
“She won’t fight me,” Maxwell stated. “I have pretty much asked her or I have asked other promoters to put on that fight several times and she said no. And I really don’t know why. Hopefully after the Palace Fighting Championships she’ll pick a fight.” Maxwell went on to say that Thompson management maybe to blame.
“She didn’t tell me herself. I went through like though four or five different promoters and her management company said no to every single one of the promoters,” Elaina pointed out. “Hopefully one day it will go down and I would be honored to fight her and I’m sure she’d be honored to fight me.”
Emily Thompson is scheduled to fight Erin Toughill on the upcoming Palace Fighting Championships 13 on May 8 at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, CA. Maxwell said she will be in attendance.
