Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Carina Damm challenges Claudia Gadelha
The Brazilian MMA publication Tatame reports today that Carina Damm has officially called out Claudia Gadelha. This is despite the fact that Claudia usually fights around ten pounds heavier. Carina is the sister of Rodrigo Damm and trains at his Damm Fight dojo. Her record is 12-3 and her most recent fight was a win over Kalindra Carvalho Varia. She gets a lot of attention for her looks. A couple of years ago she was all ready to make a big splash in the US when she was suspended for one year for failing a drug test. She's been in the Brazilian media a lot lately complaining about how tough it is to get fights. Claudia trains at Nova Uniao. Her record is 2-0 and she has a fight coming up on Dec. 20. She getting a lot of press as the next big thing in Brazilian women's MMA. But Carina claims that Claudia is being protected while saying that she has no opponents. That's why Carina challenged her. But Claudia turned her down. Carina said that Claudia has had three easy fights and the time has come to put up or shut up. She says she will fight Claudia anytime at any place.
