Support Fort St John News

One of the most looked forward to parts of any mixed martial arts fight card are battles between female competitors, and Fivestar Fight League 14 will feature one. Jamie Herrington of Fort St. John will be stepping into the cage with Mary Martin of Kamloops as Herrington aims to improve on her 1-0 fight record.

Herrington takes pride in being a female competitor and sees the opportunity to fight as a way to give exposure to the women’s side of MMA.

“In this part of B.C. or the country alone there isn’t a whole lot of women’s fighting going on. Today we know Ronda Rousey in the big shows but with shows like this and promoters it gives people knowledge that women can do stuff like that too.”

Her confidence is high heading into next Friday’s bout against Martin as the training has paid off sooner than Herrington anticipated.

“The last year I’ve been focusing on kick boxing and all of my other strengths of mixed martial arts, along with my wrestling. It’s been a work in progress but it’s coming along a lot quicker than I thought originally.”

Wrestling is the main strength of her game. Herrington has 15 years of freestyle wrestling experience and has competed at the international level in the sport.
