This Saturday’s Caged Aggression 21 event is set to showcase the continued development of the women’s welterweight division in MMA when Imari Claude takes on Kristine Ion-Rood.
Both women will be making their professional debuts and look to make an immediate statement in a division which is still very young when it comes to women’s MMA but has seen opportunities rise over the last few years thanks to organization’s such as RIZIN, Alaska FC, Trinity Combat Sports, DEEP JEWELS and Fight Nights Global.
Claude is a 29-year-old who fights out of Iowa and has made it publicly known she’s looking for the knockout victory. Ion-Rood is a 46-year-old, also from Iowa, who has amateur MMA experience and in her most recent showing submitted Christina Heathcock in just 19 seconds.

Caged Aggression 21: Night 2 takes place this Saturday March 10 from The RiverCenter in Davenport, Iowa, United States. The event begins at 6pm EST, any streaming details will be announced on the organization’s official social media pages.
