Marianna Kheyfets picks up TKO win at XFC 16

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

Feb 10 –  In a battle between top 125-pound prospects, it was 10th ranked Marianna “The Crushen Russian” Kheyfets (5-0) defeating Heather “Hurricane” Clark (4-2) via TKO (Doctor Stoppage) at 5:00 of round 1 at XFC 16: “High Stakes”. The first round was extremely close, with both fighters content to keep the battle standing throughout, however with just seconds left in the round, Clark took Kheyfets to the mat with a leg trip and unfortunately either took a knee or elbow to the eye, causing the ringside doctor to stop the bout between rounds due to the extreme swelling.
