Student Spotlight – Pam Sorenson
The Cellar Gym’s very own, Pam Sorenson, has been receiving a lot of media attention lately! Pam “Bam” has been placed on the list as one of the next women that the seemingly unstoppable 19-1 Cris “Cyborg” wants to fight.
Cris Cyborg, a Brazilian American, has had a stronghold on the 145 lb female division since 2009 when she beat Gina Carano via TKO winning the Strikeforce title belt. Cyborg has also been a major advocate for adding a permanent female featherweight division to the UFC. This addition would open the door for a lot of women in the MMA scene! Many think that Cyborg is unbeatable but Pam Sorenson could be the secret to beating her.
Pam started training at the Cellar Gym in 2012 with goals of getting into shape and learning new skills. She is now 7-2 as a Professional Mixed Martial Artist and ranked #9 in the world as a featherweight. Last year, Pam was signed to Invicta Fighting Promotions which is the biggest all women’s fight promotion in the world! In addition to her impressive fight record, Pam has also made headway for women’s MMA in Minnesota over the past 6 years and her influence continues to pave the way for women athletes everywhere!
