One of the most talented young fighters in New England MMA, Kylie O’Hearn, will start off 2019 with her 2nd Pro fight on the January 19th on the CES card at the Twin River Event Center in Lincoln Rhode Island.
Kylie O’Hearn (Team Juniko 1-0) vs Jessy Miele 6-3 (IMB Academy of CT)
Kylie made her pro debut in 2018 at Cage Titans 40 against a very tough opponent in Trisha Cicero (Team ATT 1-3). Kylie came out the victor by RNC of the very 1st Round (2:30). She has an impressive 3-1 ammy record starting out in 2016 for the NEF promotion out of Maine.
Coming from such a talented camp she has had a very tough time finding ladies to fight. Once she got to the 3-1 record (her only loss is to current Invicta FC fighter Kerri Kennisen 3-1), Kylie had a very hard time finding suitable opponents locally. Kylie went from 4/8/2017 to 8/18 2018 without scrap do to two opponents having to pull out due to injury (Two scheduled fights with Taylor Thompson). After the last cancellation, Kylie and her coach/manager/father figure Lee “Loco Lobo” Gresh decided it was time to go pro. It wasn’t going to be just any pro fight she accepted but with a tough reginal title holder (FL) in Cicero. Cicero fights out of one of the most well-known/respected MMA gyms in the game with American Top Team (ATT-FL). Kylie showed how tough she is be it on her feet or on the ground with this impressive win. The experience and training she sees and receives on a daily basis shinned bright at Cage Titans 40.
With the announcement of this January 19th fight, Kylie will get to show her skills via another amazing promotion in CES against Reality Fighting 135lb champ Jessy Miele. Both ladies are Brown Belts in BJJ and we are sure to see that skill set displayed. Miele is the current 135lb Champ for the Reality Fighting Promotion (CT) and got the win over a tough opponent in Calie Cutler (6-6) via a 2nd round RNC (4:38). Jessy is currently the #1 ranked (Pound for Pound) out of 41 other females in the New England area, #2 /150 in the Northeast (Pound for pound) and #28th /1258 (Pound for pound) ranked female fighter in the U.S. per Tapology. So, to say this is a huge step up for Kylie in her 2nd pro fight is an understatement.
