Emma Smith, Colosseum Sports: “Victim Support helped me out so much in my life, I wanted to give something back”

(London, 23rd July.12) Colosseum Sports is proud to announce the final fight card for ‘Women Fight Back’ at Fight Science Gym in Aldershot (UK) for this Saturday 25th August at 7pm, boasting a rare all female card. The event is a not-for-profit fundraiser, both organised and carried out by volunteers from the UK MMA community.

The Women Fight Back Card now includes 2 professional and 5 Amateur MMA bouts, plus 2 K1 and 2 White Collar boxing fights. Pro Flyweight Rachael McMillan was forced to withdraw from her MMA bout against Kate Jackson due to injury but the fighters have agreed to square off in a White Collar boxing match. MacMillan is undefeated at Semi-Pro in MMA and has a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Purple, while Jackson has a 4-1-0 MMA record. The fight will be a boxing first for both women.

Three further withdrawals have pitted Laura Howarth against Cheryl Flynn for a Bantamweight Amateur match (agreed without headshots on the ground), while Sophie Cook returns to the cage to face Sharlott Stephen, also at Amateur.

Two new fighters have been added to the card in KC Kendall and Katherine Brown, who will be fighting an Amateur bout at Lightweight. Fighter Danielle West will now be joining Michelle Drake Browning to referee the MMA fights.
