Last night, I went out to VFL MMA in the Valley VIII in Cherokee, NC, for a night of ISCF amateur fights.
I guess there was trouble finding an opponent for Krissy Barrett of Busted Knuckles (WV). She ended up in an unofficial exhibition match with Christine Amato from Knoxville Martial Arts. Christine was about 30 lbs. heavier and quite a bit taller.
Still, Krissy dominated her, coming in with a high kick, a flurry of punches, a take down, and then G&P. Amato’s corner threw in the towel.
Ladies, it looks like we could use some more amateur fighters in the Southeast. It’s a shame to be scurrying for opponents at the last minute. (No disrespect to Christine — this was her first amateur bout & it appeared she agreed to fight with very little notice).
