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.

Anna Elmose vs Amanda Bobby Cooper added to Nov. 19 UFC show
UFC Europe announced this morning that Anna Elmose vs Amanda Bobby Cooper has been added to UFC Fight Night 99 at SSE Arena in Belfast, Ireland. This show will air on UFC Fight Pass. This match was first reported by the UK Sun. Anna is from Copenhagen, Denmark. She made her UFC debut as a Bantamweight and lost to Germaine De Randamie in May in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Anna looked overmatched and out of shape in that fight. Of course Germaine is a natural 145lb fighter and at 5'3", Anna looked very small. So now she is going to try Strawweight. She has never fought at 115 so we'll see if she can make weight. She may be another fighter who might be better off at 125. Amanda is from Bath, MI. She was on TUF 23 and she lost to Tatiana Suarez in the finale. As I have said before, the talent level of the TUF 23 Strawweights was low and I think the UFC has signed only the two finalists. Amanda is also an Invicta veteran losing to Aspen Ladd. There's someone I would like to see in the UFC. Right now I would describe both fighters as low level prospects who probably shouldn't be in the UFC. But they are and we'll see if either of them can move up.
