Sarah McLeod defeats Summer Artherton



On Saturday December, 11 at VFC 33 in Omaha, Nebraska at the Mid-American Center in Council Bluffs.

Sarah "TNT" McLeod (2-2-1) defeated Summer Artherton (2-2-0) by unanimous decision in a 115-pound amateur MMA match.

Sarah McLeod is a Canadian fighter who is self trained. She was coming off of a loss against Emily Whitmire on November, 6th, that fight however was at 125-pound, this was Sarah's first fight at her natural weight class of 115-pounds.

Sarah is a very big and strong fighter for this weight division, I expect big things in her future at 115-pounds.

  1. Nope, I am 2-2-1 .... I lost a fight to Keri Scarr in an exhibition bout so it doesnt count on my record- she had over 15lbs on me! It was just for fun & it was a great experience :D

  10. If people were jealous, they would pick someone who doesn't lie with a better record to be jealous of.

    ReplyDelete
  11. lol...yes emily, I didnt know that an exhibition match doesnt count on your official record, so I included my exhibition fight with Keri Scarr, silly! That's what happens when you are self-trained, with no coach! I will start training MMA in 2011... dont hate! :D

  12. You mean start training mma again since there are videos of you training mma in Canada...and you state in your previous interviews that you were training mma...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Anyone who knows me, knows that I dont train in MMA. I shadow box, shadow kick, hit the heavy bag, and I do my own conditioning at the weightroom. I have grappled a couple times back in April-May, but never with a woman. I have hit pad maybe 10 times in the past year. I did sparring a couple times back in April, but thats it. Never been to a jui jitsu class. I study youtube videos and I learn from my fights so that is why I try to fight so often. If you have questions, feel free to ask, but false accusations are quite unneccessary! I have no reason to lie. I just love to fight!

    ReplyDelete
  14. O damnit, I went to one drop-in jui jitsu class in October. And also I sparred once at Team Bad Boy OutReach in November. So there! :D

  15. Sarah it is now time to get serious about MMA and show all the naysayers that you can excel at anything you do.

    ReplyDelete
  16. No one doubts her ability to excel. this is not a case of jealous or 'hating'. It is irresponsible to fight without training and only adds to the negative reputation that mma is not a legitimate sport and is simply an excuse for people to beat each other up.

    In a time where people are working so hard to legitimize the sport, all fighters or people who claim to be fighters need to understand that their actions contribute to the reputation of the sport and sh*t like this (lying about records, bragging about being irresponsible and not training but still fighting) only brings us down and holds us back.

    Clean up your act and stop giving the mma community a bad name, especially female mma. we have enough problems gaining respect, no need to give people who doubt us more ammunition.

    ReplyDelete
  17. lol... there is no lying about records going on and there is no bragging about anything. I train very hard, but I train by myself, and I am very proud of what I have achieved on my own. I am not a professional, I am an amateur, and I make it very clear that I will start to train now that I have found the sport that I love. I am truthful to all of my friends and fans and I have my own personal reasons for training by myself. When I am comfortable with sharing my story, then you would understand how such attacks are quite unnecessary. Everyone has their own preference to training and I strongly encourage all women into fitness/MMA. I will continue to do so throughout my career.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Professional or amateur you still need to conduct yourself in a respectable and professional manner. No matter how you word it, stepping into the ring with no mma training will always be irresponsible, unsafe for you and your opponent and not something to be proud of.
    I have seen your attacks on other fighters in other mma forums and they were most definitely out of line and unnecessary. If you can't take criticism, don't dish it out. Grow up or get out.

  19. wow this bitches are hating on you sara.

    ReplyDelete
  20. At least you recognize that you should start MMA training if you want to go anywhere in this sport. You have the heart and strength of a fighter but unless you train in MMA you are limiting yourself majorly.

  21. Listen up ANONYMOUS.....This is the Owner of The Victory Fighting Championships and all i have to say is that regardless of her record and whether or not she has trained in a gym is that Sarah is one of the Nicest, Toughest, and Greatest Competitors I have ever met!!!! To step up on a weeks notice and fly to a foreign place without a corner and then still WIN!!! That makes her an Incrediable Fighter in my Book!!!!!! So to her haters....Suck IT!!!! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  22. Can people make up a name or something so that they all don't say anonymous?

    ReplyDelete
  23. it is hating what u all are saying! if its about the sport we should all be supporting each other! not nit picking at sum mistake in a mma record! come on ppl, leave it alone! sarah works damn hard, and anyone in this sport (especially a women) deserves mad respect cuz it takes sum damn big BALLS to step in that ring/cage! PEACE LOVE AND HAPPINESS! COME ON!

    ReplyDelete
  24. i dont know why so many people are hating on sarah. She acknowledges that she is an amateur NOT pro mma fighter and from what i have read up to this point, she does not pretend to be anything that she is not.
    In fact after reading all this and discovering that she flew to a foreign place for an unpaid amateur fight with NO corner, i have to take my hat off. That takes some guts and despite that being an unconventional form of getting ready for a fight, not many fighters-inclduding myself-would even do that.

    As for her routine of self training, leave her alone. I know tons of other fighters who do the same, or less, who end up with mixed results but thats neither here nor there.

    Dont listen to these haters sarah, but join an MMA gym, learn some jiujitsu and i would love to see you in a rematch cheryl chan :)

  25. Let us not forget who she beat here. It isn't as if she went and beat some quality opponent

  26. Hey Emily Whitmire! Grow up! I have seen your comments on another article that accuse me of lying about my record. You are a very immature and disrespectful person. Accusing me of lying for what you can google, seriously? Let me copy and paste for you, Ms.BlondeB.

    Here is video of my first KICKBOXING fight against Chelsea Borsoi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYnpol1ehvY

    Here is an article on AFC weighins: http://topmmanews.com/2010/07/17/afc-3-weigh-in-results/
    "In a rare event, Sarah McLeod was underweight. At the time of writing, it was unsure how her bout with Keri Scarr would proceed. The fight may be moved to some type of catchweight or to an EXHIBITION"
    My fight with Keri Scarr was an exhibition bout, and it does not count on my official record.

    My amateur MMA record is 2-2-1
    2 losses: Emily Whitmire(125lbs), Cheryl Chan (125lbs)
    2 wins: Olesha Karrington (143lbs), Summer Artherton (115lbs)
    1 draw: Wendy Roy (125lbs)

    My kickboxing record is 1-1
    1 win: Angela Business (166lbs)
    1 loss: split decision to Chelsea Borsoi (136lbs)

    All of my fights are in 2010. My training consists of self-conditioning and sometimes hitting the heavy bag. I dont have a trainer and Im just an athlete who loves a challenge.

  27. On our fight, I apologized to you on fight night for missing the weighins the night before, due to delays in my 12-hour drive. I came to your hometown, self-trained, just eager to fight and excited to have a road trip with my good friend Laurie. I didnt have a corner or a coach, so I asked Laurie and my dad to sit in my corner, and consistently yell "calm and relaxed". I started in south paw for my first time against you, but after the first combo, I knew it wasnt the right stance for me. I tried to switch stance really quick and catch my balance, but you pinned me against the cage right away. You felt alot bigger against me and I remember being very mentally broken down for giving you such a big handicap. I really shouldn't have started in south paw, but I guess I underestimated you and I decided to experiment out of my comfort zone. It is what it is, and win or loss, every fight is a great learning experience and I had a lot of fun in Oregon! I love the challenge of fighting a larger opponent but I moved to the States less than 2 weeks after our fight, so that I could fight women in my weight class at 115lbs (instead of women who lean down to 125lbs). I also have plans to start training MMA with a trainer starting Jan 2011 so I will no longer be "self-trained". Also, I will no longer be experimenting with the south paw stance!!

    I have always given you great respect for your win over me, and your participation in these comments are just a sad reflection of your character. I would have expected more from you, but you are a blonde :)

    No hard feelings. Train hard and good luck on your next fight!

  38. Emily Whitmire--

    Google: "Chelsea Borsoi Sarah McLeod" and you will find video footage of my first kickboxing fight, NOT MMA.

    Google: "Sarah Mcleod Keri Scarr exhibition" and you will find an article on AFC weighins:
    "In a rare event, Sarah McLeod was underweight. At the time of writing, it was unsure how her bout with Keri Scarr would proceed. The fight may be moved to some type of catchweight or to an EXHIBITION"

  39. lol.... So thats what all this is about! You are calling me a liar on 2 public forums that I have found, not because of any lies, but because you are really just upset that my facebook status was "coming to her hometown to beat her up" before I left to Oregon??? haha! damn. too silly!

  40. mmm...no it had nothing to do with you pathetic posting on facebook... but im done with this drama i wish you the best luck sarah and where ever life leads you

  41. Ok! Thankyou very much! Im glad we got that cleared up! My amateur mma record is 2-2-1 and that's the truth! No need to call me a liar for something you can google. You have attacked me on this article, and the pre-fight article by WMMA, so I was clearing that up for you!

    Thankyou and good luck in your future as well!

  43. If you know Sarah at all, you will know she has a history of lying to people. It is just fact. She makes excuses for her losses instead of saying I was beat by the better fighter. She talks about there being so few chances to fight in Vancouver, but the reality is, it is because it is well know up here how much trouble she is. She is not liked at all up here

    ReplyDelete
  44. Exhibition fights are on your amateur record, so when u fought Keri Scar and she handed your ass to u, thats a loss!!! It doesn't just disappear from your record Sarah.

    ReplyDelete
  45. LOL... too funny! :P

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ok, you were outweighed by 15lbs...... and your point? You take a fight and lose, it is simple, you lost, no excuse. Perhaps that is the cause of your history of backing out of fights. Because you can't think of an excuse ahead of time for when you lose. The real reason for the losses is not the weight difference, it is because you are so predictable. You throw nothing but the same two punch combo, and the only time you throw a leg kick is when you miss the combo and the oppoent charges in. Any time you fight anyone with any skill level such as Emily or Keri, you wll loose. You talk so much trash before a fight about going to people's hometowns and stealing their fans, then when you loose, there is always an excuse. Leave the fighting to the people who actually train for teh sport and take it serious and go back to your bikini modeling stuff you do. You do not belong in our sport

    ReplyDelete
  47. LOL, I make no excuses for my losses, they are all learning experiences, and I enjoy every single one of them. I went into my fight with Keri Scarr, knowing that I had nothing to lose. I knew I was going to get beat up. She leaned down to be 15lbs more than me, come fight day, she was alot bigger. I had a blast and it was a great experience, but an exhibition does not count on your official record. I do not ignore my loss to Keri Scarr, I talk about it all the time. I was honored to have taken that fight.

    I fight to challenge myself, not to prove anything to anyone. Its a fun sport and I love to make my friends and fans excited, with a simple facebook status that Im off to war. There is no trash-talking or disrespect intended ever, its a fun sport and I have the utmost respect for anyone who steps in the cage!!

    Ive had my fun in the higher weight classes, but now I AM taking it seriously and Im fighting at my weight of 115lbs-- I walk at 117lbs. I also have a trainer starting January 2011, and I will start training in MMA. Also, I will continue my bikini competitions too! I belong in both worlds!!! Yaaaaaaay!!!!! :D

    Emily Whitmire, U silly girl! :P

  49. Sarah you are very simply put, an insult to a gret sport. YOu have had trainers before, and they all get rid of you because of your attitude

    ReplyDelete
  50. Sarah, have you been in any/many fights before you got in the ring? Like maybe back in your school days?? Cause you certainly look like a natural, especially considering you've had no fight training!

    And if you have, how'd they go? You put them hands to good use?
