The Andrews Report – Colleen Schneider makes successful Bellator debut

Considering her original opponent Rebecca Ruth pulled out with an injury about a week and a half before Bellator 170, Colleen Schneider (11-7-0) got the job done yesterday against Chrissie Daniels (2-3-0).

Sure, she missed the flyweight limit by three pounds at the weigh-ins, but she was preparing to make 135 pounds after Ruth pulled out before getting another flyweight opponent in Daniels.

Schneider won via submission 90 seconds into the opening frame with an anaconda choke.

Schneider was officially fined twenty per cent of her purse by the CSAC, but I don’t see Bellator head honcho Scott Coker adding to this.

By the way – this was the only female fight at Bellator 170 and it wasn’t televised, booked after the main event of Tito Ortiz and Chael Sonnen.

You can’t win ’em all.

Invicta FC’s Peggy Morgan (4-4-0) ,37, announced her retirement Jan. 12 in a Facebook post and wrote about it in a column for MMAWeekly.

The writing was on the wall for her, she candidly wrote, sharing the emotions of making sure she really wanted to step away for good.

Morgan was a participant on TUF 18 and the TUF18 Finale, and at 6-1 and 145 pounds, one of the tallest women in the featherweight division.

All the best in “Daywalker’s” future endeavours.

Is Joanna Champion booked for “Dancing with the Stars?”

Nice little training setup here:

Of course, UFC on FOX 23 is next Saturday, with Valentina Shevchenko (13-2-0) taking on Julianna Pena (8-2-0) in the main event.

The case for “The Venezuelan Vixen:”

The case for “Bullet:”
