The passage of time can be the deciding factor when it comes to fighters obtaining professional longevity in the starting stages of athletic transition. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a lioness of the salty sea ready to steer her career toward the positive side of success as Anthony Pettis Fighting Championship goes international to the UK for the first time at the BEC Arena on October 20th in Manchester. A professional mixed martial artist since October 2021 and representing Wayfarer Academy, Levi Steedman holds a 2-3 record in five contests with each of her wins coming via knockout. 100 percent of Steedman’s victories during her time in the professional ranks have been inside the distance. She has fought for ARES Fighting Championship, Full Contact Contender and Budo Fighting Championships. Steedman has never gone to the scorecards at any point over the course of her career as a professional MMA fighter and has a two for two finish rate to show for it. She has one first-round finish in addition to a single second round finish under her belt in five appearances during her career as a professional mixed martial artist with times of four minutes and 26 seconds and nine seconds respectively. Both of her finishes during her professional career have come within two rounds.
In her promotional debut with Budo Fighting Championships at Budo FC 49, Steedman faced Jenny Line and went on to defeat her via technical knockout in the second round. Then at Budo FC 61, she defeated TJ Reeves in round one. The win earned Steedman the second knockout victory of her professional career along with back-to-back finishes under the Budo FC banner. She also picked up victory number two as a professional in the process. Steedman may have endured rough waters early on, but calmer seas are inevitably in sight!
