Unsigned Hype: 145-Pounds

There are three major promotions that sign fighter to long term contracts and show commitment to building deep divisions. UFC, Invicta FC and Bellator.

I will list fighters who are not signed to any of these three major promotions and tell you a little about them. They will be listed in the order of the highest ranked fighter first.

1. JAN "CUDDLES' FINNEY (11-12-0)

#3 ranked 145-pounder Jan Finney is a 5'8 thirty-seven year old fighter from Springfield, Ohio.

A true pioneer of the sport, she started back in 2004. Her early career included a trilogy with former UFC fighter Julie Kedzie. She has engaged in wars with the likes of  Shayna Baszler and Miesha Tate.

During her time in Strikeforce she faced both Liz Carmouche and Cyborg Justino. She fights nothing but the best including Holly Holm and Valentina Shevchenko.

She is currently on a three fight winning streak and has an upcoming fight against talented Invicta FC title contender Pam Sorensen, hopefully a win gets her into one of the three major promotions, she definitely has paid her dues.

2. REINA "KING" MIURA (7-0-0)

#10 Ranked 145+ pounder Reina Miura is a 5'3 twenty-one year old fighter from Tokyo, Japan.

She last weighed in at 165-pounds but she has dropped down as low as 120-pounds in the past.

King Reina Has been unstoppable in Japan, where she has fought all of her fights. Her most impressive win came against former UFC fighter Shayna Baszler.

Lets hope we get to see this rising star in one of the big three promotions very soon.


#15 ranked 145-pounder Latoya is a 5'5 thirty year old fighter from Austin, Texas.

She has fought for Invicta Fc in the past. She holds victories over Bellator and Invicta Fc veterans Gabrielle Holloway and Peggy Morgan.

4. MARTYNA CZECH  (3-0-1)

#17 ranked 145-pounder Martyna is a 5'10 fighter from Tychy, Poland.

An undefeated fighter who has yet to be tested, besides her impressive pro debut win against Izabela Badurek. In a division looking for new talent, she seems to be a sure bet.


#19 Ranked 145+ pounder Bobbi Jo is a 6'0 thirty-one fighter from Ontario, British Columbia, Canada.

Having never made 145-pounds, I still included  Bobbi because of my hopefulness to one day see this talented canadian face top competition, not that she hasn't already impressed with the caliber of her victories including former Bellator fighters Andria Wawro, and Jozette Cotton.

Even if at 155-pounds lets hope to see Bobbi Jo real soon on a T.V. screen.


#21 ranked 145+ pounder Sarah is a 5'11 thirty-three year old fighter from Burlington, Iowa.

Another fighter who has never fought below 155-pound Sarah holds victories over top ranked fighters Kilistina Makihele and Tamikka Brents.

She first began her career in 2002, with over 15 years in the game, it would be nice to see her get a shot in the big show.


#22 Ranked 145-pounder Yekaterina is a 5'4 fighter from Moscow, Russia.

She has fought as low as 120-pounds.

She is young in her career, but she is surley someone to keep an eye on.

She has won both of her wins by finish, one by submission and one by knockout.
