On Saturday night, RFA 13 will be televised live on AXS TV with a quality headlining bout between Dakota Cochrane and winner of season 8 of The Ultimate Fighter reality show, Efrain Escudero. The event will be held at the Pershing Center in Lincoln, Nebraska.
While the headlining bout will catch the attention of mixed martials arts fans, there is a women’s clash that will be held that will demand even more attention.
For the first time ever, two ring card girls will be fighting in the cage.
Nebraska natives Stephanie Watts and Alyce Roen will both be making their MMA debuts in a 110-pound catchweight bout as they turn in their cardboard cards for the old six ounce gloves. The bout will be featured on the amateur portion of the preliminary card before the televised portion of the card on AXS TV.
Both women have admitted that they are nervous for their first bout, but excited to finally get their fighting careers started.
