What just might be the largest gathering of female MMA fighters ever is currently underway in Evansville, Indiana. Dozens of women have gathered for the Gfight Summit. Some are training with Julie Kedzie and Greg Jackson. Others are competing in a grappling tournament or an amateur MMA show. And eight top female fighters from around the globe will be competing in the 2009 HooknShoot/GFight Grand Prix, a 115-lb Pro MMA competition which will take place this Friday, January 17th.
Total Combat European Title Belt holder Lisa Higo and American Top Team's Jessica Aguilar are among the women slated to fight. Avery Vilche will be fighting in place of Arizona Combat Sportsâ€™ Jamie Lyn, who had to withdraw due to injury. Mariah Reed, Tammy Schneider, Van Do, Angela Magana and Lacey Schuckman will also be competing for the 115-lb title.
