Cassie Crisano defeats Glauciele Silva

On Saturday May, 4th at Olimpia Fights in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Cassie Crisano (2-1-0) defeated Glauciele Silva (0-1-0) by submission (inverted armbar) in the 1st round of their 135-pound professional MMA match.

Cassie is a 33 year old 5'10 fighter originally from Ellenville, New York but now living and fighting out of Sao Jose do Rio Preto, Sao Paulo Brazil at Brazil Fight School where she is trained by Joel "The Joker" Garcia. She has trained in Brazil for the last two years.

I asked Cassie how long has she been training and also what got her started in MMA and this was her answer, "
I started training MMA in 2009 after I was involved in a shooting at work (police officer) where my partner was shot. It was my therapy to deal with the incident. I also have wrestled since I was 14 years old."

Cassie has another fight coming up this weekend vs. Beatriz Zambonini at Ring of Fire Brazil 9 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
