The number-two ranked women’s lightweight fighter in the world, Sarah Patterson, returns to competition at this Friday’s Revolution Combat Championships event to take on Moriel Charneski.
Patterson (5-3-0) has been competing as a professional mixed martial artist since the year of 2002. She has won four of her last five, which includes first-round stoppages over Tamikka Brents, Erica Grover and Kate Bloomfield. The 33-year-old looks to rebound from a controversial decision loss to Jozette Cotton at the recent Dynasty Combat Sports 37 event. Despite the loss, Patterson was very close to finishing the fight on multiple occasions, bloodying and battering Cotton in the process.
Charneski (2-4-0) will be returning from a 19-month layoff. The 28-year-old will be looking to rebound from a two-fight losing skid. Charneski has had enough of attempting to make bantamweight and believes she can perform at a much higher level when cutting less weight. She has never been stopped by an opponent, both as an amateur and as a professional.
The fight between Patterson and Charneski is a very exciting one for the division. Patterson will be looking to show why she is one of the top stars at 155-pounds by adding another impressive highlight reel performance to her record and perhaps eventually challenge the winner of Reina vs. Dandois for the number one spot sometime in 2018. Meanwhile, the fight marks a new start for Charneski, who looks to make an immediate statement in a new division by taking out one of it’s top-ranked contenders.
‘Revolution Combat Championships 14’ takes place this Friday December 29 from the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, United States. The event will not be streamed live, WMMA Rankings will release the results once available.
