History will be made this Friday when Sarah Patterson battles Jozette Cotton for the inaugural lightweight world title in the co-main event of Dynasty Combat Sports 37. The event will be aired live on FloCombat.
The 155-pound division is one of the fastest growing in the world of women’s MMA, the introduction of a belt is no doubt a big step in the right direction for the division.
Patterson (5-2), has been competing as a professional mixed martial artist since the year of 2002. She is riding high on a four-fight win streak which includes first round stoppages over Tamikka Brents, Erica Grover and Kate Bloomfield. ‘Primal’ is currently the No. 1 ranked lightweight contender in the world. She believes she will be the woman to put the lightweight division on the map, much like Cris Cyborg with the featherweights and Ronda Rousey with the bantamweights.
In August 2016, Patterson competed in an openweight contest, brutalizing the much heavier welterweight competitor in Killastina Makihele. The bout was stopped at 1:43 of the second round. Take a look at the fight below.
