Ilara Joanne Glad To Snap Losing Streak At PFL 4

Uncasville – PFL flyweight Ilara Joanne was happy to get back to winning when she picked up the victory over Shanna Young at PFL 4 on Thursday night.

“I wouldn’t call it pressure, but I was just itching to go back to the winning streak,” Joanne told reporters including Cageside Press through a translator at her post-fight scrum.

“That’s what God put me on this planet for.”

Joanne (12-9) fought her second fight for PFL on Thursday night and she’s enjoyed the experience in the promotion so far.

“Very happy. Very grateful for this opportunity. PFL they do everything for you. They take care of the athletes,” she said.

Missing out on the playoffs scoring only 3 points in the regular season Joanne still has opportunities to fight in 2024.

“I just want to fight. I love what I do. It’s what I was put on earth to do,” she said.

“Whatever’s the soonest opportunity. Sign me up.”

Snapping a losing streak is a big deal in the MMA world as it can be a slippery slope when a fighter starts one.

“Just worked a lot on my mental game. Putting myself in the right mental space to do this,” said Joanne.

“To come out here and put on a good show. Have faith in God.”
