“I was number-one ranked and I guess I gotta get that back. I’m a fighter, so send [King Reina] my way” Makihele told WMMA Rankings.
Makihele (3-2) is the number-two ranked welterweight fighter in the world. All her career victories come inside the first round, by way of knockouts and submissions. The 44-year-old, also known as “Killa”, is a former boxer who has shown to possess KO power in her hands. She owns noteable knockout victories over Heather Martin and the larger heavyweight competitor in Rachel Kemker.
Reina (5-0), the number-one ranked welterweight, made her debut last November. The 21-year-old has fast become one of the most well-known female fighters in the world, dominating her competition using her world-class Judo skills. She owns notable victories over Kristin Handel, Shayna Baszler, as well as heavyweight contenders Jazzy Gabert and Lei’D Tapa.
A fight between Makihele and Reina would be a fun battle between the two best welterweight fighters in the world. Makihele would look to use her boxing background combined with her punch power to her advantage, whilst Reina would no doubt be looking to implement her Judo.
