“Army vs Marines 3″ takes place on March 10th at the Grizzly Rose in Denver, Colorado and features a Strawweight matchup between Lisa Jeanson, fighting in honor of J.D. Van Brunt – USMC, and Darla Harris, fighting in honor of J.Bryan Hotz – Army. Portions of the proceeds from the event will go to benefit wounded warriors.
Jeanson (1-1) began her pro career in December 2010 against Jen Berg. Unfortunately, due to an eye injury sustained during the first round, Jeanson was unable to continue and Berg was awarded the TKO victory. Jeanson would rebound in March 2011, defeating September Thornton via rear-naked choke in the first round. Now, almost a year later, she looks to claim her second win as a pro. Harris (1-0), made her pro debut in October 2011, also against Jen Berg. The pair would engage in a very entertaining and competitive stand-up war for the majority of the bout and when the final bell had sounded and the scorecards tallied, it was Harris walking away with the unanimous decision victory. Like Jeanson, Harris is also looking to claim her second professional win and only Jeanson stands in her way.
