Background

“We are excited to bring the women’s strawweight championship to southern California at LFA 118,” stated Soares. “Jaqueline Amorim is a BJJ world champion and Loveth Young is a kickboxing world champion. This title fight made perfect sense as both women are coming off back-to-back devastating wins inside our LFA Octagon. The winner will become the fourth strawweight champion in LFA history.”

Amorim (4-0) is one of the most high-profile free-agent signings of 2021 and backed up the substantial hype shortly after signing with the LFA earlier this year. The multiple-time BJJ world champion was born into the world of combat sports in Manaus, the state capital of Amazonas in northwestern Brazil. At the age of 6, Amorim signed on to ASLE, one of the top jiu-jitsu academies in the world. This is the same academy where UFC star Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and LFA star Ary Farias were developed prior to making the move to MMA. Amorim trained and competed extensively in Brazil and received her BJJ black belt shortly after her 20th birthday. One year later, she and her husband Windson Ramos were invited by BJJ legend Leozinho Vieira to move to Charleston, South Carolina. The re-location allowed Amorim to train, teach, and compete regularly in the IBJJF circuit. It also allowed her to sign with the LFA where she has set multiple records in her two fights with the promotion. Those LFA accolades include the fastest and third fastest finishes by a woman in LFA history for her 10-second knockout victory at LFA 110 and 33-second submission victory at LFA 101. Her win at LFA 110 is also the third-fastest overall finish in LFA history.

Young (3-1-1) is the most decorated female combat sports athlete from Nigeria, which is Africa’s most populated country. She proudly carries the lofty expectations of a continent on her shoulders as Africa is looking for its first female MMA star to join the ranks of current UFC champions Kamaru Usman, Israel Adesanya, and Francis Ngannou. The multiple-time kickboxing world champion and national boxing champion also holds a national title in wrestling, but it’s her striking prowess that has taken the MMA world by storm. The police officer known as the “Nigerian Terminator” possesses some of the most devastating knockout power in all of women’s MMA. Young’s crushing power was on full display in her LFA debut at LFA 81, when she engaged in a bloody war with Vanessa Demopoulos. The back-and-forth affair ignited a whole new level to Young’s game that was impossible for her next two opponents to handle. The first of the two to be “terminated” was southern California’s Reena Norville at LFA 94, where the fierce Nigerian striker landed a highlight reel walk-off knockout win in the first round. Three months later, Young pummeled RFA standout and firefighter Kelly D’Angelo en route to a violent TKO stoppage at LFA 97.
