USKA Fight Night – First Professional Female Muay Thai Fights in Pennsylvania
The United States Kickboxing Alliance will hold USKA Fight Night at the Hamburg Field House in Hamburg, PA, January 28.
The card is headlined by a USKA world title bout between PJ Sweda and Ben Pride.
One half of the USKA owners/partners, Jen Heffentrager, also serves as the matchmaer for the organization and she tells MyMMANews that the card will include a historic moment in combat sports for the Keystone State.
“The January card is starting 2017 with a powerhouse card of fighters that includes the FIRST PRO FEMALE Thai fights in Pennsylvania.”
Those pro fights include Heather Walker-Leahy vs. Brandice Peltier, and Ilhame Rhaffari vs. Lisa Edinger.
The other half of the owners, Irv Althouse says, “Wow so much I am excited about with this card! I feel I have accomplished the biggest PRO/ AM Muay Thai card that anyone will see in this area!”
Also on the card, in the co-main event, Brad Mountain takes on Samlullah Ahmady. Mountain tells us, “This fights means a lot to me. Walking out with a victory here will put me one step closer to fighting for Lion Fight again.”
Mountain is coming off that incredible performance, albeit a loss, late last year against Brett Hlavacek at Lion Fight 31.
