Updated: I just found out that my wife won her match on Sunday and took first place in her division via a unanimous decision. Thanks go out to her Kru, Rigel, her trainers Justin and Jay, her training partners Danica and Casey and everyone else at MFS Philly who played a role in helping her get prepared!
Some of you asked for an update on my wife, who is competing at the WKA North American Championships in Virginia. Andria won her first match in what was described as convincing fashion. She’s about 5’9” and made weight the day before at 146. By her own admission she might have between on 10 pounds after the weigh-in and despite being in the same weight class, she had a huge size advantage on her opponent. From what I was told, she utilized her reach and landed a lot of punches.
Andria will be fighting again today and if she wins, she’ll be the champ of her division. Wish her luck again if you’re down there.
Also, there was a pro MMA show at the WKAs last night. Andria said Jens Pulver and Sean Sherk were there hanging out.
