Adrienna Jenkins (born July 22, 1981) is an American mixed martial artist who competes in the Women's Featherweight division of Bellator.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Jenkins made her MMA debut in 2004, at WEC 9 - Cold Blooded against Keri Scarr. She won by disqualification after she was hit with an illegal upkick and knee.

Jenkins fought Alisa Cantwell at XFO 3 losing in the first round via submission due to punches. She quickly returned in a month after submitting Shelby Walker at HOOKnSHOOT - Evolution 2.[1]

Jenkins went undefeated from November 6, 2004 to February 10, 2007 with a record of 10-1. Her streak ended when she took on Kelly Kobold. Jenkins quickly rebounded off the loss by winning her next 7 fights with one of those wins coming over Bellator & Invicta FC Sarah Schneider in the first round of the FCF Women's Bantamweight Grand Prix.[2]

Jenkins took on Jan Finney in the semi finals, losing via split decision.[3] Jenkins then replaced Finney in the finals of the tournament after FCF released her so she could fight in Strikeforce.[4] Adrienna was now taking on future UFC vet Shayna Baszler in the Grand Prix final. She lost via first round submission.[5]

Jenkins lost her third straight fight when she took on Tonya Evinger at RW 8 - Cage Supremacy, which saw Jenkins leave the sport.[6]

Jenkins made a return after five-year hiatus to take on Kelsey Jorgenson. She won via TKO in just 27 seconds.

Bellator[edit]

Jenkins made her Bellator debut at Bellator 137 taking on Arlene Blencowe.[7] she lost via TKO.[8]

Jenkins returned at Bellator 141 against Lissette Neri.[9] she won via first-round TKO.[10]
