Well here’s a problem you don’t come across every day. Brye Anne Russillo is a 29 year-old New York MMA fighter. She has two amateur fights with one win and one loss.
The problem she faces is that she has to fight in a heavier division than she would like to because of her double-D breasts.
“I can’t cut my tits off,” said the single mother of one to MMA News, “and put them on the side, they weigh 12 pounds (5.4 kg).”
That 5.4 kg moves her up a weight class, but gives her no strength advantage. And in combat sports that’s a huge advantage to give away.
In fact, it took Russillo’s team more than three months to finalise an agreement to fight Paige Lian at 150 pounds (68 kg) for the Aggressive Combat Championships in Queens on October 3.
Everyone expects me to be a Barbie Doll,” says the pastry chef, bartender and mother of one. “Bleach blonde hair and a big chest.”
But when she found MMA she fell in love with the sport. Her trainer made the decision simple when he said it was alright to bring her baby daughter to training.
“If you find a hobby late in life, follow it! I have a child and turning 30 in a couple of months, and I’m glad I followed my passion.”
