Earlier this year, a 12-year-old MMA fighter named Momo Shimizu absolutely dominated Momoko Yamazaki, 24, during a fight for the female-focused MMA organization DEEP JEWELS in Japan. How this fight was even legal, we have no idea. All we know is that we would 100% fork over our lunch money to Shimizu if she asked for it. Girl can throw hands!
Shimizu came into the bout at (wait for it)…just 86-pounds. Just so you know, that is the minimum weight requirement for her division. I’ve checked suitcases heavier than that. Obviously, her lack of size didn’t matter much as she used her superior technique, speed and agility to wallop an opponent who is literally twice her age. Check this out.
When I was 12-years-old, I was geeking out over Spider-Man 2 and trying to notch my first kiss. But Shimizu is out here training three hours a day, six days a week and has already competed in more than 100 amateur Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, kickboxing and karate matches. Honestly, this girl needs her own horror movie franchise because I would be absolutely terrified if she ever came after me. She could easily be the next Annabelle.
Honestly, I feel bad for her opponent. Best case scenario: you beat up a 12-year-old. Worst case scenario…well, you know.
Momo Shimizu, on behalf of all of COED, let me be the first to congratulate you and kindly ask that you please not give me a wedgie and shove me into the lockers.
