Last night, Carroll’s Corner MMA podcast was joined Brye Anne Russillo for drinks and to discuss her big news. Russillo announced a gym transition, plus her next fight. We joined Russillo at Headliner Bar & Grill in Hicksville, New York, on Long Island.
Brye Anne informed us that she is no longer training under Eric Olsen of Valhalla Muay Thai. As she is looking for a permanent gym to call home, Russillo is working with strength and conditioning trainer, Joseph Diffendale. Diffendale is the owner of JD’s Fitness Training.
Russillo’s big announcement was her upcoming bout overseas in China to fight on the World Series of Fighting Global Championships card. After battling phenomena late last year, Russillo is feeling better, healthy again and back to training hard for her upcoming bout. Her fight in June on the WSOF Global Championships’ card will be a 150-pound kickboxing bout under K1 rules. After this match up, the Long Island native intends on making the transition over to MMA. The fight is scheduled in June, giving Russillo enough time to get ready for the biggest bout of her amateur career.
