Liz Posener Making Her Mark in Mixed Martial Arts
April 10, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsLiz Posener, a Pankration and Muay Thai fighter from Vancouver B.C., has been busy turning some heads in the past few months.
The 31 year old wife and mother of two began training in Pankration and Muay Thai in 1998 - two years after her first pregnancy with her baby daughter. Initially, she viewed the sport as “fun” and a great way to get back into shape. At the time, little did she know, that she was entering the world of MMA.
Liz had participated in an MMA “Team Quest” mini camp. After three days of training with Randy Couture, Matt Lindland, Nate Quarry, and Robert Follis, she stated “I learned enough in the first 15 minutes to get my moneys worth.” Two months after the camp, she was fighting in her first MMA match.
Training under her husband Simon, she has achieved an MMA record of 4-2-1, and has fought in previous events such as Elite Fighting Championships, Real Cage Fighting Championships, and Unified Cage Fights.
She’s already obtained a handful of supporting sponsors including SubmitGear.com, Nogi.com, and Bushido.ca and is currently featured on the cover of 2 MMA magazine’s; “NW FightScene” and “FightZone”. Full Contact Magazine has also written a 2-page article on her and her accomplishments.
