At just 24 years old, Christina Breuer is already an accomplished kickboxer, currently holding a 17-2 record. In fact, she is one of just two people to say they have defeated Jorina Baars, one of the best women’s kickboxing and Muay Thai talents. Breuer, who won the Enfusion Extreme Featherweight Kickboxing title in June 2022, made her professional MMA debut just a couple of months ago, scoring a second-round submission of Annabell Honert.
Known as “Lady Tyson” thanks to her striking style, Ruby Mesu, also a kickboxer, will be making her professional MMA debut tonight. Mesu’s run in combat sports is a remarkable one after suffering a broken neck in a 2016 car accident that forced doctors to fuse three cervical vertebrae together. She returned after a year and a half of rehab.
