Jenna Fox defeats Ashley Taylor II


On Saturday February, 23 at Central Illinois  Throwdown at The East Peoria Event Center in East Peoria, Illinois.

#1 ranked 135-pound fighter Jenna Fox (9-0-0) defeated #9 ranked 135-pound fighter Ashley Taylor (5-3-1) by unanimous decision in their 135-pound amateur MMA match.

Jenna is a 5'8' twenty-one year old fighter from Monmouth, Illinois. She trains at Central Illinois Combat Club where she is coached by Bob Long.

I asked Jenna how long she had been training, what other sports has she been involved in and what got her started in MMA and this was her answer, "I've trained for about two and a half years total, with a hiatus in the middle.. I played volleyball, a little basketball, and ran distance in track. I fell in love with the sport the first day I trained and nothing fulfills me like pushing myself in the gym and the cage.  I'm taking it one fight at a time and focusing on improving myself daily."

I then asked Jenna how long was it that she stepped away from the sport she loves and why, here is her answer, "It was about a year...I was unhappy with the gym I was at and not sure where to go. It was a rough time for me, I gained a lot of weight and was just unhappy. Then I just buckled down, started making the half  hour drives to train, and have really benefited from training with Central Illinois Combat Club."

Jenna has a title fight on March 9th against Kim Woods in what will likely be her last amateur MM fight, hopefully we see this very promising young fighter in Invicta soon after she takes her record to a perfect 10-0-0.

  17. Firstly, you must exercise; without proper workout, you can bid goodbye to your dream of having a flat tummy.
    Skiing and snowboarding are strenuous sports which demand a lot of endurance, so your usual set of ten
    to fifteen reps really isn''. This type of exercise
    will increase your cardiovascular endurance, improve your
    flexibility, increase your muscle strength, improve your balance and can actually
    reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
