SANDSTON, Va., Oct. 22 (UPI) -- A Virginia grandmother said she is trying to find a man who would agree to fight her in a cage match.
Khandace Cossitt, 56, of Sandston, said she attended a cage match with a boy from her neighborhood recently and it sparked her interest in the sport, WTVR-TV, Richmond, reported Monday.
"That's a fight?" she recalled thinking during the match. "You call that a fight?"
Cossitt said she is not interested in fighting women, and there aren't many who could match her 6-foot, 5-inch size. She said she is well practiced in fighting men.
"I've been a bouncer. I've been a security guard. I've been a stripper. I've done burlesque. I've been a horse trainer ... . [Men] pick at me and pick at me and I'm like okay. I let it slide, and then ... they will be decked," she said.
Cossitt said she is in contact with cage match promoters about finding her a worthy opponent. She said she is not afraid to fight someone younger than herself.
"I'm older and better insured," she said. "And I've done it a lot longer."
