"Scary" Kerri Kenneson (2-0) doesn't plan to let a panel of judges decide her fate at Invicta FC 28. She expects to give them the night off, with a finish either by submission or knockout.
The promotional newcomer, a New Hampshire native, fights Stockton's Chelsea Chandler at bantamweight. It's a matchup that "Scary" feels quite confident about. She's hoping to become a household name, using UFC Fight Pass as a platform to showcase her skills to the world. She'll have that opportunity on March 24, as she fights Chandler at Salt Lake City's historic Union Event Center. The bout airs live on the UFC's fast-growing digital network. It will give her the chance to perform for fans watching all across the globe.
"Not many people outside New England know who I am, but they will after this fight," Kenneson declared. "I will be making a run for the belt in Invicta, until my time comes to get into the UFC. I've made a lot of progress in a short period of time and I don't think I'm far off from reaching my goals, especially since I've been given this incredible opportunity.
"My style has evolved into a ground and pound, and submission fighter. However, I feel well-rounded in all areas. I will either get a submission, or technical knockout by strikes."
With the women's bantamweight division being as wide open as it is, Kenneson has a real chance to climb the ladder in a hurry. Invicta's 135-pound title is currently vacant, so the promotion is going to be looking for fresh blood to emerge as top contenders to enter the championship mix. The winner of Kenneson vs. Chandler will absolutely be part of that conversation.
