March 16, 2022,
More great news is coming your way from the fully competitive Female Submission Wrestling and Session Girl world.
On Saturday March 26, 2022, the legendary Wrestling Monica is having another event.
Monica? Take it away.
At her vibrant home wrestlingmonica.com she smiles, “My female vs female competitive wrestling events and Mixed Wrestling parties are the highlights of the UK Wrestling scene. I currently hold four Live events and four Mixed Wrestling Parties each year.”
Fantastic. We can attest that her events are incredible since we have been purchasing from her video store for at least a decade.
There is more. Monica will have a mixed wrestling party on March 30, 2022. The party starts at 6:30 pm with mini matches, fun and games, mini matches and much more.
In terms of the wrestling, the Fem Competitors involved are Alora Lux, Bianca Blance, Cheetah, Eva Ray, Inferno, Galya, Jeanne Hunter, Lina, Storm and Tamsin Riley.
From The Submission Room.
LONDON VS SHEELA
As reported by Pippa, “Here is the first match from the London Submission Room’s live event held on 26th February 2022 and it features London Wrestler against Sheela. London has featured in several Submission Room live events before, but for Sheela, this is her first Submission Room event and the audience are naturally keen for the match to get underway. Pippa the Ripper herself introduces the wrestlers and gets the match underway.
It doesn’t take the wrestlers long to discover that they are both extremely flexible and this makes submission holds difficult (and at times, impossible) to apply. At one point, London gets Sheela into a camel clutch – a submission hold that for mere mortals, would be enough to get an immediate tap, but on Sheela the move simply doesn’t work, much to London’s frustration.”
Match #2 from the London Submission Room live event on 26th Feb 2022 featured Havoc (one of the newest wrestlers to join the team), against Athena. Havoc might be new to the Submission Room, but she brings with her many years experience in wrestling, and the live audience were excited to see how she would hold out against the highly experienced Athena.
Pippa gets the match underway and it doesn’t take long before the match gets really feisty, with both wrestlers giving it 100%. Athena musters up all of her MMA experience and gets the first submission hold on Havoc with a rear naked choke after just 1 minute 30 seconds. But this just seems to fire up Havoc and the match now turns ultra-competitive.”
Sounds like two great matches for your video collection.
WOMEN’S FREESTYLE WRESTLING
In the growing female freestyle wrestling world, this time of year is annually championship season.
As reported by stltoday.com, “Sophomore Cameron Guerin (130) and senior Sydnee Kimber (191) captured individual championships to lead McKendree University past pre-tournament favorite King University in Adrian, Mich., last weekend, giving the Bearcats back-to-back-to-back national women’s wrestling titles. Guerin was named the event’s most outstanding wrestler.”
Congratulations to both McKendree and King University.
During FCI’s early years, we’ll always appreciate that King University in general and Coach Jason Moorman in particular, were very cooperative with FCI.
It’s wonderful to see nice and great people having continued success.
WOMEN’S PROFESSIONAL MMA
On February 19, 2022, as reported by mmajunkie.usatoday.com, “Stephanie Egger picked up the biggest win of her career Saturday when she finished Jessica-Rose Clark in the first round at UFC Fight Night 201.
Egger (7-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) needed less than four minutes to beat Clark (10-7 MMA, 4-3 UFC) in the grappling exchanges in the women’s bantamweight fight, which took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.”
We know when it comes to the UFC, there is always a new rising star in a very crowded and power packed women’s field yet Stephanie seems like a special talent you should keep your eye on.
Ms. Egger is a judo black belt, having won the 2010 European U23 Championships and was the Swiss Judo champion in the +63kg category in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Egger was also won the ADCC European Trial in 2019 at 60kg.
The longtime black belt competed in the 2019 ADCC World Championships where she went to a decision with Gabi Garcia.
Get this, in addition to the many hours of training every day, Stephanie Egger works in the family restaurant in Berneck.
Well done Stephanie.
We watched the March 4, 2022, PFL Women’s Flyweight Challenger Series on Fubo TV.
It was incredible. Full of surprises.
The PFL is seriously expanding and if you love Women’s MMA, they continue to make news.
