We talk to local Helena, MT fighters Becky Maxwell and Emily Green about fighting in their hometown, and their aspirations to take on the world. As MMA has grown, so has the inclusion of female fighters from across the United States. Even in the smaller cities, women want to test their combat skills. Two such amateur competitors are Becky Maxwell and Emily Green.
Maxwell (1-0) is looking to impress this weekend at Fightforce MMA’s “Helena Havoc” card in Helena, MT. After a submission win her first time out last month, she will take on Canadian Kailee Ryan in an mma bout.
On the same card, Green will be making her fighting debut, in a kickboxing contest verses Canadian Roberta Nikkle.
Both women took some time to talk to “Fightergirls” to talk about their young careers, getting started in the sport, and their aspirations for the future.
