The NAMMA Expo was in Anaheim, CA this past weekend with Randy Couture headlining the event and companies such as IFL, King of the Cage, Punishment Athletics, TapouT, Fatale Femmes Fighting, and Fightergirls.com in attendance.
Fatale Femmes Fighting came out to show their support for the women with a nice booth and fighters such as Lisa Ward signing autographs.
FighterGirls and AlphaFemale introduced their new line of training/board shorts to the audience. The three new designs will be available to order by the end of 2007 online at both FighterGirls and AlphaFemale sites.
Debi Purcell and Helen Shelby also announced their new all-female promotion, “Warrior Women” that will debut in early 2008. All female fighters interested in fighting on this prestigious promotion should contact Debi at firstname.lastname@example.org. The following is the formal announcement:
Two extremely accomplished women in the sport of mixed martial arts have finally decided to step up to the plate and change the lack of positive progression in women’s mixed martial arts.
They have partnered up to promote all-women’s professional and amateur mixed martial arts events, nationwide and internationally!
“Warrior Women” is created by women and run by 2 women who have made martial arts a part of their lives for over 30 years, and they’re both trained and accomplished advocates in the sport of MMA.
I bring to you the partnership of Debi Purcell and Helen Shelby.
“Warrior Women” will reach a level of professionalism for the sport of women’s MMA like no other. They are backed and supported to be able to launch a series of events beginning in the coming New Year!
