It would take quite a bit to get anyone into an MMA ring. A big pay day may not even do the trick.
The opportunity to “ground-and-pound” with any of these gorgeous women, on the other hand, would be a difficult offer to refuse.
After all, it is probably the only time being mounted by the opposition is considered a favorable position to be in.
When FemaleMuscle first posted about Karla Nelsen, we got great feedback and some requests for more on this beauty. After quite a bit of searching, we came up with very little. Karla is going to be 45-years-old this year and grew up in Minnesota. Minnesota is also where she picked up the sport that made her famous, women’s bodybuilding. She was quite tall, 5’10” and held up to 225lbs in the off-season, which added to the pleasure of watching her wrestle. Many of the her videos featured much smaller men and added to her powerful stature.

Fia Reisek, 25-years-old, is a Swedish arm-wrestler who is climbing the ranks and looking to take it all!
When asked how she got started, Fia said: “I really don’t know exactly when I started for real, I was only seven years old when my father began and while he was training I played with the other children who weren’t that serious, but I liked being at the club and went to every training, and that´s how it began.”

Lori Braun has covered world class wrestling contests from 2001 through today. She took wrestling lessions herself at Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn, and many a man and woman claims she has a wicked headlock. Lori has asked us to bring back some recent vintage photographs from the World Wrestling Championships at Madison Square Garden that Lori personally covered in 2003. We will be posting more galleries from the 00’s in the next few days.
