The uk’s youngest Female fighter Lisa Mccalum really showed her worth this past weekend when she stepped into the cage at Fury mma in Romford london last sunday.
Her opponent was the very vocal hometown favourite Stacey “the Hammer” Hayes .
Prior to the fight there had been a lot of talk from stacey who claims to be the best fighter in the uk at the 73kg division and the hype surrounding the fight had grown with various forums also hyping the match, the weighins the day before the match also proved to be eventful with stacey weighing in point 5 over the agreed weight and the staredowns for the cameras where great.
Fight night and lisa came out to a large crowd booing but wasnt fazed at all stacey came out to a very vocal crowd with chants of her name.
Rd 1 was pretty even with both fighters landing some great punch combinations and lisa made good work of the clinch knees and elbows with niether fighter willing to give an inch.
Rd 2 saw lisa really start to take control and begin to unleash elbows knees and low kicks hayes secured a takedown but didnt stay busy on the ground and was stood up by the ref.
Rd 3 saw a very similar rd to the previous with mCallum really finding her pace and rhythm using the thai clinch knees and elbows, and wrestling to keep stacey at bay, stacey kept looking to her corner for advice as though she was lost.
Nearing the mid way of the final rd stacey secured a trip takedown , lisa used her superior wrestling to get up and finish hayes with a barage of punches causing hayes to tap .
MCcullam wins rd 3 by TKO due to Ground and pound.
Well done lisa superior striking and wrestling Everyone at EKBJJ and Bloodline fight Team are very proud of you.
