Brye Anne Russillo is gearing up to fight Paige Lian on Oct. 3 but she’s not happy about it! Brye says she was bumped up a weight class because her Breasts weigh 12 pounds
In a perfect world, amateur MMA fighter Brye Anne Russillo would like to fight in a much lighter weight class. She’s slated to take part in a 150-pound Aggressive Combat Championships fight against a fellow fighter namedPaige Lian in Queens, N.Y. on Saturday night.
She is slated to fight Paige Lian on Saturday for the 150-pound title in the Aggressive Combat Championships in Queens.
It took Russillo’s team more than three months to agree to the bout at the Queens Theatre because she normally fights at 145 pounds, 10 pounds less than Lian’s typical weight.
In her first fight, at the Extreme Cage Fighting promotion in Astoria, she won by TKO after shattering her opponent’s shin.
She lost her second fight, in Delaware, by TKO to a fighter she later called the toughest woman she ever met.
“I’m doing the best I can,” said Russillo, who has a 6-year-old daughter.
“I’m a single mom who later in life decided to try and get back in shape. I’ve been a career bartender for 12 years. I was drinking a lot and partying while I was at work. Now I train and don’t drink, and I’m actively trying to better my life.
