Dynasty Combat Sports looks to crown its inaugural women’s featherweight champion this Friday when Jozette “The #1 Headbusta” Cotton takes on Marissa “Shorty” Pender.
Cotton (8-1-0) will attempt to make featherweight once again, after weighing in at 150-pounds during her last attempt back in December. The 29-year-old is the reigning DCS lightweight champion, having defeated Sarah Patterson to earn the belt this past September. She is keen to make the full time move to 145-pounds in a bid to eventually challenge UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg.
Pender (3-5-0) makes her return to featherweight following a run at bantamweight in which she is coming off an impressive first-round submission win over Gina Begley. The 31-year-old has won all her career victories by way of submissions.
Dynasty Combat Sports 40: St Patty Showdown takes place this Friday March 9 from the A View On State in Omaha, Nebraska, United States. The main card featuring Cotton vs. Pender will be aired live on FITE TV from 7am EST.
