If you happen to live in Europe, Pannie Kianzad may already be a familiar name: a hard-hitting amateur boxer who is ranked 4th in the world at 145 pounds, according to the Unified Women’s MMA Rankings. But if you sleep in the other side of the Mid-Atlatic Ridge, don’t be alarmed if the undefeated Swede’s name doesn’t ring a bell. Perhaps that’s because she has never fought for the widely-marketed Invicta FC, and she hasn’t signed with the UFC. But she fights at Cage Warriors 71 in Amman, Jordan tomorrow. And a win in the CWFC is serious business, because it is regarded as the largest MMA organization in all of Europe. If she wins, she may eventually be gazing into the dreamy eyes of Joe Silva on Skype.
So this is your chance to get to know her now, before it becomes cool to name your daughter Pannie. Channel your inner hipster. Be the first to buy the shirt. How do you afford your Kianzad lifestyle? You’re in luck. It’s free, for a limited time, on YouTube.
