"HARD ROCK: THE GIRLS ARE BACK!"
(Elizabethtown, KY) – After putting on an exciting night of fights in front of the largest crowd in Hardrock MMA history at Hardrock MMA 12: Night of Champions, Hardrock MMA will make history again as it hosts the first women’s professional MMA fight in Kentucky at Hardrock MMA 13: The Girls Are Back.

The main event will feature a rematch between Hardrock MMA promoter and professional fighter Vanessa Bohleber-Higdon vs Heather Corder. The pair’s first match, as amateurs, ended with Vanessa scoring a win via referee stoppage due to ground and pound just 32 seconds into the first round.

Featured on the women’s MMA reality series Fight Life, and training under Josh Johnson out of Etown BJJ and Judo, Bohleber-Higdon pulls double duty as both a promoter and professional fighter. “It’s nice to be in the first women’s professional fight in Kentucky,” said Bohleber-Higdon. “I think it’s great we're hosting the first women’s professional fight. We've had a lot of pro fights on our cards lately and it puts us above the average promotion that puts on amateur fights here and there. I'm not taking Heather lightly. I'm prepared for anything, and even though I won the first one early, I'm not taking her lightly because it could go any way.”

Sponsored by Heart Fight Gear, Heather Corder is looking forward to the rematch. “I think it’s great being part of the first women’s pro fight in Kentucky,” said Corder. “I think if you have the chance, everybody should do it [fight MMA]. Women are just as tough as men. I like Vanessa, but once we get in the cage it’s a different story. I have been hitting the gym everyday, twice a day, and my game has tightened up a lot.”

In addition to the main event, the card will feature two other professional fights and fifteen amateur fights showcasing some of the best talent the area has to offer with fighters from Etown Beatdown, 4 Seasons, Team Warhammer, Team Animal, Team No Mercy, Hayse Team Extreme and several others.

Hardrock MMA 13: The Girls Are Back will happen Saturday, September 12, 2009 at the Elizabethtown National Guard Armory. Discounted advanced tickets are on sale through www.HardRockFight.com and Hero’s Sports Cards. VIP tickets are also still available. Doors open at 6:30 PM and the bouts start at 8:00 PM.
