Showdown Fights: “Evolution” takes place at the UCCU Events Center in Orem, Utah and features Jenny Trujillo taking on local favorite, Tandi “Tandilion” Schaeffer. This event will be streamed LIVE and can be purchased for $10 at GoFightLive.
Trujillo and Schaeffer were scheduled to fight earlier this year, however that bout had to be postponed due to Schaeffer breaking her ankle. Now 100% healed, these two Muay Thai strikers will finally meet. Trujillo (1-3) began her pro MMA career in November 2009 with a unanimous decision victory over Angie Pereira. In 2010, she would lose three hard fought decisions to Nikohl Johnson, Raquel Pa’aluhi and Casey Noland. Schaeffer (1-0) began her pro career last September with a devastating second round TKO against Melissa Moore. A broken ankle during training camp would sideline her for several months, but now healthy she looks to regain the momentum and continue her climb up the rankings. With both ladies promising a war, this is one fight you won’t want to miss!
