WSOF 10 will play host to a tri-fecta of main events and will showcase 3 different title fights including the defending of the Women’s Strawweight Title. Reigning champion and renownly recognized as the number 1 women’s strawweight in the world, Jessica Aguilar (17-4) will make her first title defense against Japanese pro wrestler/mma practitioner  Emi Fujino (13-7).

Aguilar has used her camp with American Top Team to completely prepare her for her title defense.

“Training is going great, I have about 3 weeks left of hard training and 4 weeks until the fight. Everyday I’m trying to improve my skills, getting stronger and each training camp is the same but obviously my intensity goes up. Win or lose I train the same but I like to bring something different into the cage each time I enter. I’ve mainly been working on improving my technique with Gleison Tibau, Yves Edwards, Brad Pickett and Mike Brown and basically just getting stronger.”

It doesn’t hurt to work on getting stronger with guys that have 52 UFC fights between them.

Jessica has a strong work ethic and it shows when she fights.

She hasn’t lost in close to five years.

“Dedication, continuing to work hard and pushing, pushing, pushing and training, training, training. Just never stopping and improving everyday, you’re going to get out what you put in to it. There’s no doubt in my mind that I’m the best in the world.”

Jessica will be squaring off against an established pro-wrestler and kick boxer as well as experienced martial artist in Emi Fujino who will having her first fight on American soil.

“She’s a very tough opponent, she’s fought top contenders for several promotions in Japan.”

Emi has fought 20 times in Tokyo for 10 different promotions including one title fight.

“”I’ll be welcoming her to her first fight in America, in my last fight I re-introduced my BJJ and I plan on doing the same with Fujino it’ll be a good, scrappy fight but I plan on submitting her. By the last week of training I’ll know which submission I’m most comfortable with and which I’ll attack with.”

In Jessica’s last bout she utilized an arm-triangle choke to submit Alida Gray in the first round of their WSOF 8 Strawweight title fight.

Jessica would like to extend her gratitude to her trainers and partners at American Top Team, her family, friends and fans as well as her sponsors; Tommy Copper, Guardian of Life, Everlast and Deliver Lean.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
