Hot Fighter Alert: 11 Photos of WMMA Rising Star Cassie Crisano

Props to BabesofMMA for introducing us to Cassie Crisano, a 3-1 amateur MMA fighter from Middletown, New York, who will be making her professional debut this Saturday against Janice Meyer at Cage Fury Fighting Championships 17 in Dover, Delaware. The fight will be streamed live on CFFC.tv.

Like Miesha Tate before her, Cassie took to wrestling early in life, competing among the boys on her high school varsity team. Her competitive accomplishments included finishing second at the first Women’s National Wrestling tournament in Albuquerque, and becoming the 138-pound New York State women’s champion. After a long recovery from a near-fatal auto accident in 2002, Cassie began training in MMA four years ago, and made her amateur MMA debut in December 2010.

In her own words: “The problem with women in MMA is that there are just not enough of us to be able to take it to the next level as the men. There are too many women that want to be classified as ‘A FIGHTER’ but the skill level of being a well-rounded fighter is just not there. The talent pool is just not big enough yet. So when a one-trick pony pops up from out of nowhere they become a rising star which ultimately in the end makes women’s MMA look like it’s a joke.”

No offense, Ronda? Get to know Cassie better on Facebook and Twitter, and check out more of our favorite Cassie Crisano photos in the gallery above.

Articles like this are a marker of how small-ball MMA remains. This woman's website looks like the myspace page of 15 year old girl. And for sure that pool picture was taken at someone's apartment complex. I feel bad for this girl (who is 32, btw) that she is reduced to whoring herself out as a D-list modeling prospect apparently in absence of any other career prospects. Hopefully she won't end up with any stalkers as a result of all this publicity...but I bet she will.

Someone should explain to her that fuckin 3-1 bush league competitors talkin shit on Pros at the top of the game also "makes women's MMA look like it's a joke."
This is what irks the fuck out of me about the fight game; every deuchebag in an Affliction T thinks they can or could be the best. The reality is, a guy like Jon Dodson (used to train with him few times a week) will rip through ANY untrained person REGARDLESS of size, athleticism, toughness, etc.
This chick running her mouth all wreckless about Rousey is only slightly different, and if she lucky she won't have to find out the hard way.

She is fairly hot but that overtly masculine belly button gives me the heepy-jeebies and it gives my once proud boner a case of the limpy-wimpies.

Near fatal car wreck, huh? Come with me baby and I'll show you a near fatal train wreck. I call it my life.

Bein a woman's state wrestling champ is like being the hottest chick at fat camp.

That last pic looks like it was taken at an apartment complex swimming pool. Very professional looking.

And truth be told, I find this chick hotter than Rhonda.

We care about cyborg.
Or fucking else.

The other problem is that nobody cares about them unless they're fairly attractive.. like the ones that have their own article and a dozen photos on an mma website when they've had 4 amateur fights...

She's a cop, mother of two, and almost died in a car accident. I wrote about her because it's a compelling story, she's an up and comer, and it's hard as an aspiring MMA journalist to find things to write about that aren't already regurgitated on EVERY MMA SITE. Not to mention hard to get fighters to give you an interview when you don't work for a major site like CP. Apparently, it's harder than I thought to find something original to write about! haha.
