The night before Ronda Rousey faces Sarah Kaufman in Strikeforce two up-and-comer female fighters headline NAAFS Rock n Rumble 6 as Bellator vet Jessica Eye faces 2009 HOOKnSHOOT Grand Prix finalist Angela Magana. Rock n Rumble 6 takes place August 17th at Nautica Pavilion in Cleveland with a live pay-per-view webcast on GFL.tv.
With almost twice the experience Magana enters this fight on a three-fight win streak, her most recent being an armbar of Avery Vilche a little over a year ago. Eye meanwhile has made her mark in the past year. Following an unsuccessful shot at the NAAFS title in June 2011 Eye won her Bellator debut, picked up two wins in NAAFS, and in her most recent fight returned to Bellator for a unanimous decision over Anita Rodriguez, all by decision. Magana is known for her submissions and Eye her striking but both are well-rounded enough to finish the fight anywhere.
Headlining the amateur portion of the card Wes Hanson takes on Francis Healy. H anson is the odds favorite to win this fight being the 2012 amateur series #1 featherweight contender with six of his seven wins ending in the first round but Healy has been impressive so far despite coming off a loss to Tyler Saltsman.
Also advertised to appear but having no confirmed opponents are Isaiah Chapman and Mark Cherico. Cherico turned pro in April with a win over Donte Adams, Chapman in February with defeats of Richard McDole and Joe Wagner.
