The first sanctioned Sanda match happened last Friday at STQI featured two long time Sanda class rivals Tweeforce and CannibalJ. CannibalJ gained huge fan support in her interview on the SFN radio show the night before while Tweeforce has remained focused and rebounded with “Let’s stop the talking and just fight”.

CannibalJ’s coach, Omar, said she is ready to go. She’s been ready to go since day one and she’s been studying Tweeforce’s previous matches. Meanwhile Tweeforce remains confident. Her coach Aaryn says “Tweeforce is a powerhouse and she’ll be exploiting CannibalJ’s weakness tonight.”

After weeks of preparation the two fighters completed their final stretches and took to their respected corners.
