So far, the V3 women’s division has always delivered and the Legion anticipates much of the same this Saturday night when Monica Medina makes her V3Fights’ debut.
She is currently 4-1 and trains out of Alan Belcher MMA Club in Mississippi.
She got started in MMA quite unexpectedly. She was training in jiu-jitsu because a friend of hers kept asking her to try a class. Medina was hooked after her first session. Almost a year later, she decided to give MMA a try and here she is now with a 4-1 record and one of the top flyweight fighters in the southeast region.
On Saturday night, she will face Erica Fincher who is a veteran in the V3 cage. Medina gave us her thoughts about this fight, her opponent, and making her V3 debut:
“I am super pumped about my first fight of 2015. I don’t know much about my opponent, but I do know that I have been training hard and I’m sure she has been as well. I think this will be a great fight! I see my hand being raised at the end of this fight no doubt about it. Of my five fights, I have finished four of them in the first round, so I’m predicting I’ll finish this fight as well. I feel I have the advantage everywhere. My ground game is definitely on point. Once I get on top of somebody, they are going to have a hard time getting me off. I am very excited to be making my V3 debut. I’ve wanted to fight for them since I started fighting a year ago, so I finally get the opportunity and it feels great! I plan on making quite a few new fans in Nashville on February 21!”
Medina is known as a ground and pound specialist, but she has been working a lot on her standup! How do you think this fight will end? Get your tickets now and find out this Saturday night!
