Alaska FC 136 marked Tynanes’ second professional MMA fight, following a successful pro debut last March when she choked out Avril Straub in the very first-round. Prior to making the move to MMA, Tynanes, who was undefeated as an amateur, already had a background in combat sports, being a former collegiate/freestyle wrestler who placed second at nationals during her first year in college, she is also a black belt division naga championship winner. She trains at the Jesus is Lord gym in Hawaii, along with UFC star, Rachael Ostovich.
Alaska Fighting Championship 136 took place January 17 from the Alaska Airlines Center in Anchorage, Alaska. The entire event was aired live on UFC Fight Pass from 11:59pm EST.
