Baby Doll Beats Up Karate Hottie
Former two time world boxing champion Elena “Baby Doll” Reid (3-0-0), and karate fighter, Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson (7-3-0) met at SNMMA April 11. Baby Doll Reid’s heavy hands prevailed in an exciting special female 112-pound catch-weight attraction fight. Reid remained unbeaten in MMA action by second-round technical knockout, after dropping the game Waterson for the sixth time via clean strikes, immediately followed by several well-placed punches on her fallen opponent.
Former Arizona high school wrestler Jamie “The Headhunter” Schmidt (8-2-0) captured the first SNMMA featherweight title, submitting Yaotzin Meza (11-5-0) in the opening round, last night in the main event at Apache Gold Casino in San Carlos, Arizona.
Schmidt, now fighting out of Denver and representing N.E.S.T., went right to the ground and locked Meza, another former Arizona high school wrestler, into a bone-crunching arm bar that resulted in a tap-out at 1:59 of the first round.
Despite an 84–pound weight disadvantage, late replacement Beau Tribolet (2-1-0) won the first SNMMA super heavyweight (266-pounds+) title in the co-feature, using a rear naked choke to submit the 335-pound New Zealand-native Brice Ritani-Coe (2-1-0) at 4:02 of the opening round.
SNMMA links federally recognized tribes throughout the United States and Canada. SNMMA’s mission is to develop, promote and help regulate mixed-martial-arts in a fair and professional manner by federally recognized tribes that are sovereign nations.
“Jaime is a very good fighter,” SNMMA president Pat Packineau said. “He trained very hard for this fight. He’s a master technician who stuck to his game plan and dominated a very good opponent, Yaotzin Meza. We’re very pleased he won the SNMMA title and I’m looking for big things from him. Tribolet took the fight on only two days notice. He came in and put on a great show, proving that perseverance and staying in top shape can lead to an opportunity like this to win a world title.”
MMA heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar was a special guest at “Extreme Beatdown” to support his friend and Minnesota Martial Arts Academy workout partner, Chris Tuchscherer (17-1-0), the first and reigning SNMMA heavyweight champion. The former 2-time NCAA, Division II All-America wrestler, Tuchscherer, defeated previously unbeaten Jamie Klair (7-1-0) by first-round TKO in a non-title fight. Tuchscherer used a power drive to bring Klair to the mat and then unloaded a barrage of unanswered punches until the referee halted the action at 1:50.
