(QUEEN MMA MEDIA) June 16, 2018 Premier FC is set to host an evening of top shelf Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) sports entertainment at Sheraton Monarch Place in Springfield, Massachusetts. The talent filled fight card of Premier FC 26 will include two outstanding professional mixed martial arts female match ups.
One of these two exciting bouts is Lisa “Insane” Blaine versus Hannah “Queen of Sparta” Goldy , a flyweight contest that is almost guaranteed to produce hard hitting big time electricity.
LISA “Insane” BLAINE
Lisa “Insane” Blaine is a tough WMMA athlete who fights out of Connecticut. She brings a respectable 2 – 1 professional record into the cage. Blaine is an aggressive mixed martial artist who trains in boxing, muay thai, wrestling, and jiujitsu. She won her pro debut one year ago by way of second round knockout at Premier FC 23 on June 10, 2017. Blaine continued her success by winning her next fight in October of 2017 with a split decision victory against Ana Julaton at Bellator 185.
Blaine is coming off a disappointing three round unanimous decision loss to Destiny Quinones at Premier FC 25 in March of 2018 and will be seeking to get back on the winning path. Blaine originally agreed to drop down in weight from flyweight (125 lbs) and face Destiny Quinones at strawweight (115 lbs), however she was unable to reach the weight and a catch – weight match was set at 120 lbs. Blaine is thirty eight years of age and it is not uncommon sometimes for older female fighters to struggle with weight issues.
“I am not making excuses,” Blaine clarified. “I had eight weeks to train and Destiny executed a perfect game plan.” Unsatisfied with the lower weight Blaine has decided to return to flyweight where she has spent most of her amateur and professional careers.
Lisa is not thinking about her opponents fighting style, undefeated pro record, or abilities. She has chosen to tune it out and focus on trusting her coach, training hard, and getting her hand raised at the end of the fight. The Premier FC veteran appears considerably more confident returning to the cage as a flyweight.
HANNAH “Queen of Sparta” GOLDY
Hannah “Queen of Sparta” Goldy fights out of Palm Harbor, Florida and hosts an impressive 2 – 0 record as a pro. She won her pro debut with a three round unanimous decision over Gillian Robertson as a strawweight back in 2016 under Square Ring Promotions Island Fights 37 at the Pensacola Bay Center.
The “Queen of Sparta” earned her second win with a second round KO/TKO over Vanessa Marie Grimes on February 8, 2018 at Island Fights 46 as a flyweight. Goldy is a strong fighter who is always in tremendous physical condition. She is more than just beauty and brawn. She is a solid stand up striker who will be hunting for her third “W”.
“I do like to stand and bang but I’m also a well rounded fighter,” explained Goldy when asked by Queen MMA about her boxing style and if she seen the match against Blaine being stand up striking battle. “I’m not scared to pick someone up and slam them. I am comfortable wherever the fight goes. At this level it is so important to be well rounded so I’m constantly working on improving every aspect of my game. My goal is to become a complete mixed martial artist,” she continued when asked by Queen MMA if she was comfortable if the fight went to the mat.
Hannah trains at Fusion Xcel, Tough as Nails, and Orlando BJJ. She is no stranger to New England. Born in Boston, Massachusetts she grew up and graduated high school in Vermont.
“I am super excited to come back up north to fight,” explained the twenty-six year old Goldy. “This will probably be the closest I will ever fight to home.”
The bout seems destined to produce performances from both competitors. This fight has all the ingredients needed to be the ‘fight of the night’.
The PREMIER FC – 26 fight card will include many exciting bouts of which include a pro featherweight match up between Jason Rine and Jeremy Reipold, an amateur middleweight title bout between Yu Ji and Anthony Benevides, as well as amateur welterweight champion Angelo Richard putting his title belt on the line against Demetres Plaza.
