  1. Such a nice interview with Amanda. its cool when fighers like Amanda take time out of their busy schelude and do interviews like this with Karyn. Its awesome that Amanda is getting this chance to fight Ashley at UFC Fight NIght 139-The 25th anniversary of UFC Korean Zombie vs El Pantera. I wouldnt have blamed Amanda if she backed out of fighting MacKenzie. Some commissions in the states wouldnt have given Amanda the chance if that happened cause the difference was 9 lbs. At least Amanda was professional to make 115 while Mackenzie didnt give 2 cents. Her fight vs Ashley will be good. I think both Amanda and Ashley are better than their records. Ashley is 5-4: 0-3 in the UFC. Amanda is 3-4, 2-3 in the UFC. She was 2 fights into her MMA career when TUF came along. I think altitude will be a factor in all the fights, not just Amanda vs Ashley.
