Press Release

Blackeye Promotions 4 in Asheville, NC on June 17th is a stacked card that will feature 2 title fights and 5 female bouts with some of the most elite female fighters in the sport!!!

Olympian vs Olympian: Sara McMann vs Julie Malenfant

Sara is an Olympic silver medalist in wrestling for the United States. Sara is undefeated as a pro and is looking to use her world class wrestling and athleticism to take over the sport of MMA! Julie is a bronze medalist in weightlifting for her country of Canada. Julie has trained with Canada's top MMA fighters and currently resides in the states. When we were looking for opponents for Sara, most women declined or were asking for to much purse, but when the call was put into Julie, she said yes immediately. Will Julie’s strength be enough to hold off Sara’s wrestling? Will Sara be able to hang with Julie on the feet? Very exciting fight!

Kelly Warren vs Avery Vilche

Kelly is a top undefeated prospect in women’s MMA and is coming off a quick submission this past weekend. Kelly is a very well rounded fighter and is sporting a 3-0 record as a pro. Avery is a true vet who is down to bang! Avery is an IFC and Hook N Shoot vet. Kelly is known to bang it out at times and source close to both of the ladies are expecting a good ole slug fest!

Kat Alendal vs Ediene Gomes

Kat is a very versatile fighter but prefers to bang! She is an outstanding striker who trains at the Skrap Pack with such fighters as Gilbert Melendez, Jake Shields, and the Diaz brother's. She is a EliteXC vet and has gone the distance with Julie Kedzie. Ediene “India” Gomes is a fantastic fighter with an impressive 6-2 record. She trains at ATT in Coconut Creek with elite fighters on a daily bases. Ediene is truly well rounded in all aspects of MMA and this should be a war!

Colleen Schneider vs Vanessa Mariscal

Colleen is very versatile fighter training with some of the sport’s most elite fighters at the Skrap Pack such as Gilbert Melendez, Jake Shields, and the Diaz brother's. She is a Strikeforce vet and is coming of a .17 second TKO win at a recent Gladiator Challenge event. Vanessa Mariscal is an undefeated fighter who also trains with top fighters such as UFC vets, Vladmir Matyushenko and Jarred Hamman in California. Vanessa and Colleen definitely have the makings to be a very technical war and could likely be fight of the night!

Angelica Brotherton vs Maryellen Cano

Angelica trains out of Chameleon MMA in Jacksonville, Florida, while Maryellen trains out of the Tiger Academy in Roswell, Georgia. Both are extremely powerful fighters. Angelica is coming off a very close split decision loss in her last fight. Maryellen scored a first round submission in hers, so expect fireworks when these two clash.
