Marianna Kheyfets meets Molly Helsel at XFC 14: “Resurrection”

Posted: October 18, 2011 in Uncategorized

XFC 14: “Resurrection” takes place on October 21st at the UCF Arena in Orlando, Florida and features a 125-pound matchup between unbeaten, Marianna “The Crushen Russian” Kheyfets and the always exciting, Molly “The Maulinator” Helsel. The event will be televised on HDNet starting at 9pm EST.

Kheyfets (3-0) began her career in July 2010 at ‘XFC 11″ with a first round submission victory over Kim Couture, five months later at “XFC 13” she would win again, this time via unanimous decision over Marissa Caldwell. In May of this year she would rack up another victory, defeating Kaline Medeiros via a triangle choke in the third round. Helsel (8-12-1) will have a significant advantage in experience, having competed since 2003 against some of the top stars in the sports, fighters such as: Lisa Ellis, Julie Kedzie (2), Sarah Kaufman, Alexis Davis, Roxanne Modafferi, Aisling Daly and in her last bout, she faced off against the much larger Hiroko Yamanaka, going toe-to-toe with the Japanese superstar before a questionable stoppage by the referee late in the second round. This matchup has “Fight of the Night” written all over it, so don’t dare miss it!
