Representin' The MA's
Carina Damm will be at Strikeforce Challengers 10 after all. Damm was able to secure a visa necessary for travel to the U.S., and she will compete in Strikeforce's upcoming four-woman tournament. Strikeforce officials had previously announced that a backup competitor was on standby, but Sherdog.com first reported that Damm's spot will not need to be filled. Strikeforce Challengers 10 takes place Aug. 13 at the Dodge Theatre in Phoenix, Ariz., and airs live on Showtime. Damm joins Hitomi Akano, Maiju Kujala and Miesha Tate in the single-night bracket. The tournament crowns a contender to the women's 135-pound title currently held by Sarah Kaufman, who next defends her belt against Marloes Coenen at a future Strikeforce event.
