Carroll’s Corner MMA Podcast Ep15: Masters of Unified Martial Arts.
Tiffany Masters is scheduled to make her professional debut December 3, 2016, on the King of the Cage fight card “Hazard Pay”, in Keshena, Wisconsin. Masters trains out of Unified Martial Arts, under Head Coach Mike Biddle. Masters spoke over the phone with MyMMANews reporter Kyle Carroll on Carroll’s Corner MMA Podcast.
Masters discussed her upcoming professional debut, her background and her entrance into mixed martial arts.
The 22-year-old Unified Martial Arts fighter makes her professional debut against Laken “Tiny Titan” Jowers. Jowers is 1-0 as a professional after earning a second-round TKO in her professional debut.
Tiffany fought at Flyweight (125-pounds) in all of her amateur bouts. In her pro debut, she’s dropping down to strawweight (115-pounds) to battle Jowers. The Unified Martial Arts fighter finished her amateur career with winning an amateur title at Mid-State Fight Night 2, in Stevens-Point, Wisconsin.
The former female high school wrestler started off slow in her amateur career after falling in her debut and receiving a Draw decision in her second bout. Something clicked in the young fighter, as she went on to score three TKO’s in a row and finished her fourth opponent in a row, with a Triangle choke submission. She climbed to a No. 7 ranking in Wisconsin and a No. 40 ranking in the midwest.
Jowers enters this bout at 1-0 and has already shaken off pro debut jitters. The “Tiny Titan” hails from North Carolina and is currently the No. 2 ranked fighter. Jowers is only a year younger than Masters and also jumps into the cage with a wrestling foundation.
This bout is set up with two young fighters to steal the show and win Fight of the Night honors. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.Cagetix.com and selecting the event, and fighter.
The UMA fighter trains under Head Coach Mike Biddle and coach Kurt Messer. Her manager is Jason House.
