FELICE HERRIG: HFC’S FIRST-EVER FEMALE FIGHTER

By

on

Felice Herrig makes her return to the cage tomorrow night in Indiana at the Porter County Expo Center in Valparaiso. While she’s shooting for her 4th straight win, she’ll also be making a bit of history in the process.

Herrig will be taking part in the first-ever female fight in HFC history. But that fight will not be against scheduled opponent Leah Melnychuk. Melnychuk pulled out of the bout, so Herrig will be battling Barb Honchak (left) in the co-main event of the evening. Honchak fights out of High Ridge, MO and holds a professional record of 1-1. She has not fought since January 30th of 2010, when she dropped a unanimous decision to Cathilee Zingano.

“I love the fact that I will be the first female to fight (for) HFC,” Herrig told NWI.com’s Matt Erickson. “The sport is still growing for women, and I feel like I’m a pioneer and helping pave the way for the future of women’s MMA.”
