Jan Finney is back with a vengeance.
Come back after a decision lost to #3 ranked 145 pounder Erin Toughill, Jan Finney dropped to the 135 pound division about a year later and got KO victories over Marissa Caldwell and Brighton Hutton within six days of each other. Coming into the tournament this Saturday, Finney looks to make it three in a row with Liz Carreiro.
Finney sees that her strength will be in the stand-up game.
“That’s where I probably want to keep it,” Finney said. “If we do go to the ground, I don’t have a problem with that. I am a bit taller than her, so I want to utilize my reach.”
Finney says that she is going into the fight just like any other fight, and use her techniques and strength no matter who she faces in the tournament.
“I treat every fight the same,” Finney stated. “Every person in there is going to try to beat me. I’m not really thinking about that at all. Every fight I am going to come out the same way; fast and strong. I am not going to worry about what she is going to do.”
