Jenny ‘Savage’ Clausius – BKFC career
Jenny ‘Savage’ Clausius has only had one fight in the BKFC so far. Nevertheless, her sole fight with the organization did more than enough to put her on the radar of the BKFC’s fans.
Clausius fought Sheena ‘Star’ Brandenburg at BKFC 15: O’Bannon vs. Shewmaker in December 2020. As soon as the fight started, an explosive Jenny Clausius rushed to meet her much taller opponent in the center of the ring.
‘Savage’ immediately began throwing vicious strikes at her opponent. She employed various strategies to counter her height disadvantage and close the distance. Clausius did so by sticking her jaw to her chest, bowing her head down and keeping her hands up, providing herself with a fantastic defense while charging forward
She also employed some of the lesser-used strikes in combat sports, such as the Superman punch, to deal damage.
Her vicious tenacity helped her overwhelm her opponent. Towards the end of the second round, the fight was stopped due to some devastating cuts on Sheena Brandenburg’s face. Jenny ‘Savage’ Clausius won the fight via TKO due to a Doctor Stoppage.
Jenny Clausius will fight Britain Hart in the upcoming BKFC 19 event. The card will also feature the much-anticipated rematch between former UFC fighters Paige VanZant and Rachael Ostovich.
