    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Next up: Battle for the Belts

    Things were looking pretty grim with our going to this thing due to Kat's troubles with the whole Pro/Am thing, but it seems we'll be fighting in this after all.

    One of the girls that we met in Washington sent me a message on FighterGirls.net regarding one of the fighters in my bracket, Adrienne Jenkins. Turns out she's married to Jens Pulver from the UFC and has a bunch of pro MMA fights under her belt. Hopefully won't be too much of an issue, but I think she'll be fighting Marie Sturm (my opponent from my second match) on the first round of fights so we'll see how that plays out. The other girl, Katie Vogel, I'm told didn't do too great against Marie on their last fight so I'm not too worried about her (I'm pretty confident that at this point I'd beat Marie Sturm this time around).

    The two girls in Kat's bracket so far, Katlyn Young and Charmaine Tweet, are instructors at their respective gyms. Katlyn is an instructor at a TKD school and Charmaine Tweet teaches at Duke Roufus' gym (Duke Roufus also happens to be the thai boxing coach of my old instructor). Charmaine Tweet, I believe, is 2-0. Not sure what the other girl's record is. They're still looking for a 4th woman for Kat's bracket.

    The people putting on the show don't care about wether or not she's had pro MMA fights or not, but originally they were going to be sanctioned by the IKF which is where Kat is having her problems. Now they've decided to go with a different sanctioning organisation since a couple of the fighters have pro MMA fights.

    The whole pro/am system is fucked up.

    I didnt even realize I was going to be a professional fighter but apparently I am now.

    It's especially shitty in womens fighting, there's just not a big enough pool of fighters to justify the pro/amateur split.

    Well the thing is, in MMA people go back and forth and fight pro one week, amateur the next, and then pro again right after all the time so it's usually not that big a deal, the IKF/ISCF is really the only organization thats got a boner up it's ass over it from what I can see.

    I fought Restad in an amateur match and it went down as such and presented no problems. I figured fighting Page would be the same deal but apparently not...

    The promoter was wfl.tv specifically it was Mario Ramos I think that said it would be an amateur fight, Zach, the other half of the promotion says it was meant to be pro all along.

    I told them before the fight that I wouldnt do a pro fight so then I was told that it would be amateur, so I did it (and got paid appropriettly) and then got the professional shaft.

    Thats about as shitty as it gets. Look on the "bright" side... you get to change the thing under your name from "Amateur" to "Professional". Woohoo?

    i think the bright side is that now promoters will give me money for something I would happily do for free.

    But yeh, someone hook me up with a green-tag baby :P

    A question I've been wanting to ask has finally met grounds for me to ask it.

    I'm a noob about these kinds of things so please bear with me.

    Anna, you said you got paid as an amatuer, I assume you would've got paid more as a Pro.

    However, I thought up until now, Amatuer fighters didn't get paid. Whats the difference? Pay?

    At anyrate, sounds really screwed up. I hope you can get it straightened out.

    Amateur = Pay if you win (tournament purse ect.)
    Pro = Pay to fight
