InvictaFC getting no respect around here.
If you had asked me to describe my thoughts on MMA, especially Women's MMA a few months ago, I would have looked at you, shook my head, turned and walked away. I came to MMA through way of boxing and had no desire to watch it initially, although the guys around our house do.
That was before I was introduced to Invicta Fight Championships 1.
Still with reservations, I found myself actually paying attention, cage-side, and by the third match, I had forgotten I was watching women.
I realize that many of you on these boards think women's MMA can't hold a candle to the men, the talent isn't deep enough, etc. Well, all I have to say is "hold your tongue" and watch the Kaitlin Young vs. Leslie Smith battle. I honestly believe that these two female athletes put on the show of the year. It is non-stop action with no holds barred.
I'd like you to watch the first match between the two and tell me what you think.
Since this there have been two more Invicta Fight Championships.
Is there a place for women's MMA? I think after you see this, you might change your mind. Or at least I would hope so.
Waiting to hear what you all think.
