Karina Hallinan vs Yang Xiao Nan

Thursday, September 16, 2010 "Martial  Combat 10"

Karina Hallinan (2-2-0) vs Yang Xiao Nan (3-0-0)

As anyone who has followed Martial Combat will be able to tell you the ladies provide at least as much entertainment as the men. This fight should be no exception. Hallinan trains at one of the top MMA camps in the USA with standout wreslter Dan Henderson.

Yang is a Sanda champion who absolutely picked apart top Filipino fighter Gina Iniong at Martial Combat 6. The Chinese fighter showed she has some serious stand up skills which will be a threat to any opponent. Hallinan will want to use her wrestling skills to take the fight to the floor and test Yang's ground game, traditionally an area of weakness for Chinese fighters.
The fight starts standing up though and as long as it remains there Yang will be extremely dangerous. Look out for some devastating side kicks, a technique she repeatedly employed to good effect against Inoion.
