BILLINGS, MT, FEBRUARY 19, 2016 – Marnic Mann made her debut in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) at Fusion Fight League production this weekend. The event showcased 10 MMA bouts with fighters from Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and Colorado. Mann, 22, had previously been scheduled to fight in January but her opponent pulled out with an injury. Another fight was scheduled for February 5th but her opponent missed weight.
Mann and her opponent, Miranda Parsons, fought at the 115 lb. Straw Weight division. The bout lasted less than two minutes with Mann quickly dominating the match with a takedown and strikes on the ground. As Parsons regained her footing, Mann landed a left hand and Parsons turned to defend. Mann quickly jumped on Parsons back, locking in a rear-naked choke, forcing the tap out from Parsons.
“Marnic’s perseverance and dedication to training paid off tonight. The previous fights that didn’t happen made this debut victory all the sweeter,” said Head Coach Travis Davison. “We look forward to watching her continue to turn heads with every event,” he added.
