While the MMA world is waiting for New York to make it legal, one Long Island resident is making the trip to Ohio to test her skills.
Jessica Eve Richer is a 155 pound grappler, having won multiple NAGA and grappling titles over the past few years. It took her a year to find someone to fight, as it took time for the 155 pound weight class to grow.
She will be making her debut in Akron, OH at the NAAFS card this weekend.
Richer talks to us about the transition to MMA, her training out of Gracie/Baja on Long Island, and her aspirations in her fight career.
