Given the ever-growing history of MMA, there aren’t many things that can be done at weigh-ins that haven’t been seen before. Brooke Mayo took that challenge seriously ahead of Bellator 183.
Mayo (0-1 MMA, 0-1 BMMA), who meets Kaytlin Neil (0-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) in a women’s flyweight fight on tonight’s Bellator 183 preliminary card – which streams on MMAjunkie prior to the Spike-televised main card at SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. – brought a notebook with a special message inside for her opponent.
The book, which had the phrase “People to Kill” engraved into the front cover, had Neil’s name written inside.
Mayo stated afterward that her message for Neil wasn’t personal. It was, however, a warning of what’s to come when they step in the cage tonight at Bellator 183.
“This is war and I’m going in the cage tomorrow to kill my enemy,” Mayo wrote on Instagram. “I don’t hate my enemy, but she is standing in the way of everything that is important to me.”
