'Cuddles' tough to face in the octagon

'Cuddles' tough to face in the octagon:

"SPRINGFIELD — Jan Finney's nickname doesn't suit her very well.

She isn't known as 'Cuddles' because she's sweet as honey in the cage.

The 5-foot-7, 135-pound mixed martial arts fighter earned the moniker because she's always injuring her male sparring partners.

On one occasion, she cut a male fighter's eye open. Another time, she 'moused' a fighter's eye.

'It's kind of an oxymoron,' Finney said. 'I'm kind of like Lenny from 'Of Mice and Men.' '"
