Jemyma Betrian is a name that will be familiar to fans of kickboxing and muay thai, but maybe not to MMA fans just yet. She has been a force at 115lbs in both muay thai and kickboxing around the world, including fighting Lion Fight’s marquee fighter of Tiffany van Soest to a draw back in 2012. That’s just kind of a primer of how legit she is, alright?
Much like muay thai legend John Wayne Parr was tapped to help Georges St. Pierre a while back, or how Tyrone Spong was helping out Rashad Evans and they both became pretty interested in MMA, Jemyma Betrian has been helping out Ronda Rousey and the team over at GFC and MMA has caught her eye. Back in August she made her professional MMA debut at Lights Out Promotion’s Chaos at the Casino 5 against Hadley Griffith. Our cameras were there to catch the action and yes, we are just getting this up now, but it’s worth a watch.
Oh yeah, spoiler alert, Jemyma is a beast. Watch the way that she changes levels with her hands effortlessly and how just about every strike is not only hitting the target, but doing massive amounts of damage. Damn. Could she be the Tyrone Spong for Women’s MMA? I’d say that if things keep going like this there is a pretty good chance of that.
