The full card for the July 14 Fatal Femmes Fighting show has been announced courtesy of Ad Combat News. This show will be at the Crystal Casino in Los Angeles. The main event will have Lisa Ward defending her FFF Flyweight Championship against Taeko Nagamine. Nagamine replaces Misaki Takimoto. Ward's record is 8-2 and her last win was over Masako Yoshida on the last FFF show Feb. 17, 2007. Nagamine's record is 2-2 and her last fight was a win over Mamiko Mizoguchi on the May 19, 2007 Smackgirl show. This is her first trip to the US.
Other bouts include Stephanie Palmer vs Sophie Bagherdai (1-0), Angela Harris vs Crystal Harris (2-2), Jessica Pene (1-0) vs Sumie Sakai (1-0). Of course pro wrestling fans are familiar with Sumie. She's been a pro wrestler since 1997 and is a close friend of Megumi Yabushita. She currently lives in Philadelphia and made her MMA debut last year. There's also Tanya Evinger vs Vanessa Porto (5-2), Clarissa Calibusso vs Cassandra Blaso and Sarah Oriza vs Yoko Takahashi (11-8). Takahashi is the current Smackgirl Lightweight Champ. Japanese veterans Tama Chan & Megumi Yabushita are also scheduled to appear with opponents TBA. A lot of these girls are either newcomers or their first fight was on the last FFF show. And all of the Japanese fighters are closely associated with Yabushita's Tomoegumi dojo. Takahashi is her training partner and was on the last FFF show. I guess FFF is trying to build an in house roster. Ward is definitely worthy of a main event. Personally, I don't think there are enough experienced fighters on this show. It could be entertaining.
