Not sure she fights anymore though.
The bad news is that women fight women and men fight men. At least that is my understanding. The potential to get seriously hurt at these events may be the issue (don't know) as the only people who stop the fights are the fighters. No referees.
I think it would be sweet if you came and represented. The best way is to sign up and post in the open forum of the website and make your intentions known that you are looking for female/s fighters to fight at either the June or November event. That way you can line up some fights. Otherwise I don't think it will happen. (They tend not to just show up). :cry:
There is a girl that trains with us in North Hollywood but she isn't serious and I doubt she will want to fight. (Especially with your level of experience.) If you decide let me or Poidog know. You can come train with us prior to the event and we can give you some good inside advice. Or at least, Poi can... I'm still low on the totem pole...
