McCarter.  Hernandez displayed courage and heart, McCarter’s experienced prevailed.”  After the fight, McCarter said, “Hernandez has a fighter’s heart. I respect her for stepping up, she will learn from this and will use the experience for improvement. It took a lot of guts to fight someone of my experience. We all pay our dues this way.  Her time will come and she will be a champion.”
