Underestimating her is not wise.

We sheepishly admit it. We underestimated her.

When Ultra was being introduced by Honey at her May 2015 Femwrestle Event against Siberia, we had heard of her, but had not seen her wrestle.

We knew that she was a UK Fighter, but our initial appraisal was that she was primarily a Session Provider who just happened to wrestle from time to time, most likely in fantasy matches.

Against Siberia, a statuesque sensuous experienced Czech company fighter who was tall and strong, we quietly expected Ultra to be crushed.

A part of our brain has little sympathy for Fantasy Wrestlers who have the nerve to fight where the big girls roam.

We surmised Ultra, beautiful, smaller, feminine and shapely would be easy pickings.

We were completely wrong and equally surprised.

No, make that shocked.

This is why you play the games.

Ultra possessed something not easily seen, but very hard to defeat.

This internal quality was on display in the United Kingdom film import entitled Straight Heads and during another release, a different title named Closure.

We liked the name Closure better. Why? It really tells the tale because it took a long and complicated pathway to achieve it.

The intriguing review find at timeout.com clears the brush from the pathway. “Anderson plays Alice, a middle-class London career woman who lures ‘bit-of-rough’ security system installer, Adam (Dyer) to a glamorous party at a countryside mansion before seducing him with some bizarre chin-sucking in the woods. Unfortunately, their pleasure is short-lived, as they are savagely attacked on the drive home, leaving them physically and emotionally scarred, and with a bloodthirsty desire to settle the score against their assailants.”

Gillian Anderson of X-Files fame is the lead protagonist and while many critics did not like the film, including the reviewer above, I was enthralled with it.

Another reviewer at empireonline.com liked it a little better. “She’s Alice, a seductive professional living in London who picks up a cheeky young stoner, Adam (Danny Dyer — who else?), for a thrill ride that becomes a horror when they’re both attacked. “Beware country folk” is the familiar message, but this is a little smarter than that, delving into the sexual psychology of a traumatized odd-couple with interesting results.”

Revenge was in the wind and boy did she get it.

What were her two most rejuvenated qualities?

Determination and perseverance.

Those two qualities describe Ultra, our heroine and star of our story here masterfully.

How she withstood the initial onslaught of Siberia and persevered to turn the tables on the strong Czech grappler was fascinating to watch unfold.


When a relatively unknown female submission wrestler blesses us with that kind of performance, it motivates us to find out more about her and share that experience with you.



Artemis, Czech Alpha Wrestler, Fighting Fitness Warrior

This writer has always had reservations about company fighters.

Artemis, a stealth fitness beauty, for all of her wonderful qualities is still a company fighter. Unrelated to Artemis, what is the main limitation of company fighters, who compete around all regions of the globe, including here in Nor Cal?

They tend not to be creative once they find themselves in uncharted waters. They have trouble with passionate, lesser skilled grapplers. Once down, they virtually never come from behind.

We had watched Artemis fight Siberia at Female Wrestling Zone and though in our estimation, slightly lesser skilled, Siberia gave her a lot of trouble.

Had we not seen that match, we would have pegged this as a super easy victory for Artemis especially after what she did to the beautiful Hungarian company fighter Jenna.

So when she met Ultra we felt Artemis would have her hands full and she did.



Shay Hendrix, Warrior Princess From A Magical Kingdom

With reference to the above article, we have watched many of Shay’s matches at the UK company that she primarily wrestles for. In our opinion despite being marketed as competitive, with good intentions, most of their matches are semi-competitive at best.

That’s fine, except wrestling like that in abundance does not prepare you for the big stage as Shay found out the hard way when wrestled current super star and former DWW great Orsi B.

Thus, although both from the UK, as Honey stated in the match introduction, the two British Grapplers had never met before.

After her perseverance against Siberia and Artemis we were curious how she would fare with the taller and more match hardened Shay.

The operative word is taller.

The advantages that Shay would have over her is size and interestingly confidence. Shay has improved greatly since we wrote that article and finds this a tough fight against Ultra but give credit where credit is due.

Shay is ready for the bright wrestling lights.

It’s time to leave Germany.

There is not much data on Ultra so since she previously wrestled at Honey’s London Wrestling Studio, though closed down, Honey’s studio matches are still available for purchase.



We will give Honey the honor of introducing the two warriors.

“We thought we knew how this match would go too, but we were wrong!  This turned out to look like a fairly one-sided match, with one lady dominating her opponent with attempted pins throughout – but would any of them be successful?  Ultra is completely exhausted at the end of this battle!”

Sasha is a nicely muscled fighter who clearly has spent many effective hours in the gym.

Yes, Ultra was under the gun right from the start and the mystery of this match was that although Sasha was completely in control it reminded us of a match that was written at our co-operative site that featured Fight Pulse wrestlers:

FCI Womens Wrestling » Anika vs Laila Grappling


The big question was could Sasha exact a submission out of Ultra or with great determination, would Ultra persevere?

It was nice to meet Ultra for the first time. She presented us with great matches and many surprises.

Why a surprise?

In the above film Closure, one of the largest questions that loomed was would this financially well-heeled, gorgeous, talented, bright, socially elite, sophisticated and civilized woman that Gillian Anderson played to perfection turn into a complete monster to get her madly desired revenge?

Without watching the film, I suspect you know the answer to that question.

One of the major life lessons that I learned as a former leader in an International Faith Based religion is that you never know who people are and more importantly when pushed who they can turn into.

Whatever public face that they are showing you?

That’s absolutely not who they are.

And you want to know something?

You never want to find out who they really are.

When we first saw Ultra grace the mats in Troisdorf, we had a certain image of her.

Once she started to compete as a wrestler, she was clearly someone else.

Given her penchant for determination and perseverance on the mats, it’s never wise to under estimate the British Fighter Ultra.
