Ladies Fight Night is April 1

Fusion Fight League will make history April 1st

BILLINGS, MT - Fusion Fight League will make history April 1, with its first-ever all female fight card: Fusion-Ladies Fight Night, featuring former UFC talent and a full card of amateur fighters sure to be competing on TV in the near future.

“Women’s bouts are always the fight of the night and very popular. Once we committed to do this, we committed to doing it right,” said Fusion CEO Terrill Bracken. “You'll see the best professional and amateur talent from several states, including as far away as Florida, and even a woman from Brazil who has never fought in the U.S.”

The main event features former UFC and “The Ultimate Fighter” competitor Roxanne “The Happy Warrior” Modafferi, competing for the Fusion 125-pound belt with Brazilian Priscila de Souza, who carries a 12-7 record and trains with top UFC strawweight Claudia Gadelha

Modafferi said fans should expect fireworks when the ladies step into the cage.

“I have never fought in Montana before. I try not to focus on the location too much because I don't want it to distract me from my job, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to visiting Billings!” Modaferri said. “I'm so excited for this fight. I feel in the best shape of my life and ready to show all the techniques I've been training every day.”

Though she typically fights on live TV and PPV, Modafferi said she couldn’t refuse the chance to compete on an all-female card for a top regional promotion — against a top opponent.

“This has the potential to be a fight the caliber of which Billings has never seen,” Bracken said. “You have a woman currently signed to Invicta, with the UFC on her resume, and a woman with a stellar record that probably gets a big promotion deal with a win.”

The full 10 bout all-female fight card starts at 7:30 at Rimrock Auto Arena April 1.

General admission tickets are $15 and are available through the MetraPark Box Office. VIP tables can be purchased by calling 406-697-0542.. | MetraPark Box Office | 800-366-8538
