Amsterdam’s Mellony Geugjes Signs to the XFC for Season III | XFC Signing
The XFC has signed Strawweight warrior Mellony Geugjes to an exclusive contract. The 22 year old native of Amsterdam, Netherlands stands at 5’5″ and is a member of Mikes Gym. Geugjes is one of many great European fighters now on the XFC’s roster and becomes another elite caliber combatant to the already stacked XFC Strawweight division.
Prior to her start in MMA, Mellony competed internationally in kickboxing, compiling a staggering 23-7-3 record with 5 TKO victories. Her mother holds a black belt in judo and is the spark to Mellony’s start in martial arts. Geugjes began in judo following the footsteps of her mother. Learning quickly and excelling, she ventured on to kickboxing. Since her first martial arts experience, Mellony became fascinated by MMA and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and began to train in both.
Mellony’s current training regimen includes two-a-days, twice per week, training in boxing, kick boxing, BJJ and MMA. Having been involved in sports since a child, Geugjes understands the level of commitment and effort required to become a champion. Starting off as most children do with the worlds game of soccer, she transitioned into MMA carrying the same level of competitiveness. Mellony is self-motivated, she loves pushing herself and looks to prove to those who say she can’t do it wrong. Geugjes lives by this motto, “Every job big or small, do it well or not at all”.
XFC President Myron Molotky had this to say about signing his newest WMMA prospect, “Mellony Geugjes is a determined young prospect in the sport and will bring her experienced, high level, kickboxing & fighting background into the HeXagon during our Season III International Tournament. With her vision in place and her desire burning hot, we welcome Mellony to the XFC and await her debut in 2015.”
