Weekly Women’s MMA Review – 10/23

Posted: October 24, 2011 in Uncategorized

WMMA Today gets you caught up on the week that was and the week that will be in women’s MMA.


It is with great sadness that I report the passing of “Mighty” Mia Hayes this weekend. Battling breast cancer with the same courage and determination that helped her build a perfect 3-0 record inside the cage, Mia became an inspiration to all that knew her. She was only 35 and leaves behind a husband and 7 children. If you’d like to make a donation to help the family, a PayPal account has been set up:   1mightymia@gmail.com

10-21 Overcoming a slow start in round one, Marianna “The Crushen Russian” Kheyfets (4-0) would take control with excellent counter-striking and late takedowns in route to an unanimous decision win over Molly “The Maulinator” Helsel (8-13-1) at XFC 14: “Resurrection”. The three judges would score the contest for the American Top Team standout: 29-28, 29-28 and 30-27.
