SAMANTHA “The WOLF QUEEN” SEFF HUNGRY FOR CAGE WARS TITLE
January 31, 2020 Samantha Seff will face Amy Golding for the CAGE WARS amateur atomweight championship at Rivers Casino & Resort in Schenectady, New York. Samantha “The Wolf Queen” Seff fights out of North Carolina and brings to the cage a (5-4) amateur record and a ton of experience. “The Wolf Queen” has demonstrated the effectiveness of her Brazilian Jiu Jitsu skills with four of her five wins coming by way of submission finish, three of the finishes being in the first round. Queen MMA Media is proud to have honored Samantha Seff last month with the Queen MMA Media Amateur of the Year (2019) award.
Tommy Vickers of Queen MMA Media reached out to the Wolf Queen for a quick (Q & A) leading into her championship bout at CAGE WARS 45.
Tommy V. (Queen MMA Media) – How are you feeling three weeks away from Cage Wars 45 atomweight title bout?
SAMANTHA SEFF – “Hungry for the cage and out for blood. No place I’d rather be than in an octagon.”
Tommy V. (Queen MMA Media) – Are you going with your standard fight camp or have you changed anything in particular for this fight?
SAMANTHA SEFF – “I have a world champion BJJ instructor (John Schell) and a top Muay Thai coach (Josh Robinson) who are always in my corner and prepping me at Schell Shock BJJ. I’m also fortunate enough to train 3 times a week in Wake Forest with UFC strawweight Hannah ‘Shockwave’ Cifers and her excellent team of coaches Joel Garcia, Tiago Silva, and Carlos Martin.”
Tommy V. (Queen MMA Media) – Your opponent, Cage Wars atomweight champion Amy Golding is (1-2) as an amateur having won the title via short notice fill in due to injury. Amy won the vacant title against a game Jennifer Hicks via unanimous decision. Amy has a strong wrestling background and made her debut against a former Cage Wars atomweight champion Elise Reed. Are you aware of your opponents? Or do you generally not focus to closely on the opponent?
SAMANTHA SEFF – “I do a bit of research on my opponents and their game, but my primary focus has always been playing to my best skill sets and training to fine tune any areas that need improvement. I’m also lucky that my partner’s daughter is an excellent wrestler and Jiu Jitsu athlete and helps me prep.”
Tommy V. (Queen MMA Media) – Your BJJ is serious level and dangerous, how do you see it matching up with Golding’s wrestling talent?
SAMANTHA SEFF – “I train as hard as possible to be dangerous in every position available. I will never approach a fight with the fear of being outworked. The hard work will be put in all throughout camp and the fight is my reward. I’m bringing the fight to her and I expect carnage and technique on the feet and on the ground. It won’t go the distance.”
Tommy V. (Queen MMA Media) – How do you see the fight playing out?
SAMANTHA SEFF – “The plan is to make a statement with this fight and turn pro with my sights set on the top. This fight will have an exclamation point at the end for sure. I’m always bringing that big dick energy.”
Smantha Seff is a well rounded fighter and will no doubt deliver a big show for the fans and a colossal challenge for the current Cage Wars atomweight title holder. Will Samantha Seff’s strength and BJJ win the ground battle? Or will Amy Golding’s decorated wrestling background prove the better? This title fight has everything needed to become a fierce showdown.
