A New Life Experience For Jackie Cataline
Wrestler And Professional Mixed Martial Artist Jackie Cataline Looks To Step Into The Spotlight In The Co-Main Event Of Power Slap 6: KO Chris vs Muniz.
Jackie Cataline got into combat sports when she was 12 years old. She spent 21 years on the United States national wrestling team, and she is a professional mixed martial artist. Her wealth of experience is a nod to her ultra-competitive spirit – and her desire to test herself in new ways.
So, when Power Slap came calling to see if she was interested in competing on Power Slap 6, there was only one possible answer.
“I’m the type of person that if I can get it on my bucket list I’ll do it,” Cataline told Power Slap.com. “That’s why I said, ‘Sure let’s do it’.”
Before the call, “The Hybrid” had never watched a Power Slap event. She had seen some viral clips on the internet or social media, but she didn’t truly familiarize herself with the sport. Speaking with Power Slap founder Dana White and Power Slap president Frank Lamicella got Cataline excited about the sport and the possibilities that come with the spotlight it creates.

Taking risks is part of why Cataline loves combat sports. The adrenaline that comes with besting an opponent and with performing in front of a crowd is something that she loves and expects to give her extra fuel.
“I think it’s going to be hectic and chaotic and a lot going on,” Cataline laughed. “Luckily for me, I have competed internationally on all different types of stages in front of thousands of people. I think it’s going to be fun.”
Cataline will be facing Sheena Bathory in the Power Slap 6 co-main event. Bathory is undefeated, winning both of her Power Slap matches by knockout.
Even though Bathory has more experience in slap fighting, Cataline isn’t worried or intimidated by Bathory; she’s just focused on putting her training to good use and living in the moment.
“Sheena has only done this two times, so I don’t think it’s way out of my league to compete against her,” Cataline said. “I’m just going to go out there and do my best and see how things go.”
