Melissa “Super Melly” Martinez (Strawweight)
23 | 5’2” | Ciudad De Mexico, Mexico | 7-0 | 5 Finishes | 5 KO/TKOs | Combined Opponents’ Record: 18-9 | Best Win – Desiree Yanez (5-1)
While she is very very early in her career and only 23-years-old, Melissa Martinez is a major prospect in the strawweight division. She is currently signed with Combate Americas and is their current 115-pound champion. It’s unknown what her contract looks like but the talent there is running thin and the UFC could be on the horizon.
Martinez has great cardio with her constant footwork and effective side-to-side movement. “Super Melly” has the ability to break an opponent down with her chopping leg kicks. She also displays a quick release with her dangerous head kick that she has won a couple of times with. Martinez puts combinations together with her hands very well and her explosiveness and hand speed are solid. She looks really promising at such a young age and so early in her career.
