This MMA Fighter Has To Fight In A Higher Weight Class... Because Of Her Breasts

MMA fighter Brye Anne Russillo is facing a rather unusual problem with her professional fighting career. 

Brye Anne Russillo is an amateur MMA fighter who finds herself in a very interesting situation. A fighter in the 65kg category, she is now forced to go up a weight class because of her breasts!
