Joanna Angel: MMA Fighter?

joanna_angel_training_10If you happen to live (or play) in the Las Vegas area, you have the once in a lifetime opportunity go watch Joanna Angel get into the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) ring and fight some guy tomorrow night. She’ll be fighting at Ellis Mania IV, MMA fighter Jason Ellis’ personal party/fight/self-promotion vehicle. Tickets are $15 on Ticketmaster.

Joanna will be fighting one of the (male) staffers at the show Jason Ellis hosts on satellite radio. To prepare, she’s been training at the gym and has posted some videos on YouTube as well as some photos (below) of her working out and getting ready to beat this guy up. I don’t know who that guy is, but I hope Jason Ellis is training her well. It’d be embarrassing to lose to him, I think.

Having met Joanna, I can tell you that, like most porn stars, she’s tiny, but she seems scrappy to me. Should be entertaining to watch…

    That was a bad post. You can do better.

    I wouldn’t want to set foot in the ring with Joanna, however, judging by the YouTube vid, she needs to snap off those punches in a much sharper manner. Unless she’s purposely trying to make her opponent overconfident, and not showing her best form. The $15 ticket seems reasonable, but the round trip airfare places it out of my range. Are you planning on being there, Alison?

    Are most porn stars tiny? Which ones aren’t? I could swear that a few of the very long-legged europeans are in the range of 5’10-11″. How about a post about the size of porn stars?

    I really want to fight her too. She could take me to the mat, in any fashion.

    As a fan of both MMA and Porn, I don’t know what to say. Hell, one of my favorite MMA fighters is Sarah Kaufman, so I do like Women’s MMA. But I have to say, after watching that video, I find Joanna’s strikes to be kind of weak. I’m glad that she’s training (and I hope she takes it seriously so it’s not some kind of fluff show like you’d see on Cinemax), and I would like to watch that fight, but if I watch any fight tonight it’s going to be UFC 104.

    she doesn’t seem that tough to me,personally i think you could kick her ass

    So, how did she do?

  8. alison Says:

    ropeadope – She definitely didn’t seem like a pro. And no, I didn’t make it to the fight. I’m not much of an MMA fan, to be honest.

    jfro21 – Yeah, the vast majority of them are under 5’2″ from what I can tell. There might be some tall Euro girls (I haven’t met many of them), but the only tall American girls I can think of off the top of my head are Tera Patrick, Vixen Vogel and…yeah, that’s it. A post on the size of stars is a good idea. I’ll start thinking about that.

    davros – I had no idea there was women’s MMA. That might be more entertaining than men’s, honestly…

    HotScooter2 – Haha, maybe. But only because I could pick her up with one arm 🙂

    allthatremains – Strangely, the only news Joanna has posted from the event is about all the celebrities she met there (including Jessica Alba). I’ll keep you posted on the result when I find out.

    Alison, there is indeed a lot of women’s MMA out there. One of my favorite MMA fighters Sarah Kaufman was supposed to fight Takayo Hashi on the next Strikeforce: Challengers card on Showtime, but that fight has been scrapped for some reason or other. But we do get Kim Couture going up against Kerry Vera, although I haven’t seen either of them fight. I hear they’re both beginners though, which could lead to a boring fight …

    What I like about Sarah Kaufman is that she seems relentless, comes forward and brings hurting bombs with her strikes. She doesn’t do many submissions, but her wrestling skills are top notch which keeps her from being dominated on the ground. Oh great, here I am gushing about MMA on a porn blog …

    davros – I’ll definitely check Sarah Kaufman out. Don’t feel too bad for getting excited about MMA on a porn blog…submissions and domination on the ground…sounds sort of kinky 😉
