Women Fight Results Strikeforce Challengers 18

Women Fight Results Strikeforce Challengers 18 Olympic bronze medalist Ronda Rousey defeated Sarah D’Alelio via armbar in 25 seconds in the first round in their bout for Strikeforce Challengers 18 last Friday. The fight, which was refereed by Steve Mazzagatti, was ended in a controversial stoppage after Ronda Rousey told referee Steve Mazzagatti that Sarah D’Alelio had verbally submitted to an armbar. However, D’Alelio said this was not the case.

Women Fight Results Strikeforce Challengers 18

“I did not physically or verbally tap to signal my submission to my opponent’s armbar attempt,” Dalelio wrote in a press release. “My opponent communicated to the referee what she believed was my verbal signal, but the referee did not ask for my conformation of a verbal submission. The sound I did make was a sound of physical exertion as I started to defend against my opponent’s submission attempt. I was not injured or in physical distress at any time,” D’alelio said, although she is not contesting the decision or asking for an immediate rematch.

In the two other fights last weekend, Diana Rael defeated Angelica Chavez by split decision at MMA Fight Pit: Genesis and Angela Magana defeated Avery Vilche via 1st round armbar at Clash in the Rockies: The New Generation.

Jessica Eye Defeats Barb Honchack MMA

Jessica Eye Defeats Barb Honchack MMA (12/11/08 – Cleveland, OH) – The 2008 NAAFS National Amateur season came to an exciting and controversial close at Night of Champions in Cleveland, OH. There were new champions crowned in an amazing night of mixed martial arts action. Add to the mix a fight of the year candidate in the main event, it was definitely a night to remember.

Jessica Eye Defeats Barb Honchack MMA

The main event of the card was a Pro Series bout between 2006 Fighter of the Year “Smokin” Joe Heiland and 2007 Fighter of the Year Torrance “The Tyrant” Taylor. With the accolades of both competitors entering this fight, fans were almost guaranteed to see a fight to remember and it was just that. Heiland controlled the action early on, using his wrestling background to secure repeated takedowns on Taylor in the first round. The second round was a complete contrast, as Taylor controlled the pace of the fight with his stand-up game to win the round.

The controversy began in the final round, which saw Taylor as the aggressor early on, but ended with Heiland rebounding and unleashing a fury of his own. The end result was a unanimous decision victory for “Smokin” Joe Heiland, who now improves to 11-0. Both Joe Heiland and
Torrance Taylor proved that they are two of the best fighters in any organization and could easily add another fight of the year to both of their resumes.

Adam Saal made history by becoming the first ever NAAFS National Amateur Bantamweight Champion, defeating Josh Castro in an exciting back and forth fight by split decision. The NAAFS plans to further expand on the Bantamweight division in 2008, giving the lighter weight classes an opportunity to shine.

In a rematch from Rock N Rumble, Lyle Sansoucie gained a measure of revenge with his win over Eric Noel to capture the 2008 National Amateur Featherweight title. Sansoucie began the year competing on the NAAFS Club Series circuit and finished the year climbing all the way to the top of the division. He forced the more experience Noel to tap out to a rear naked choke in round 1, bringing the gold back to Team DNA.

The National Amateur Lightweight champion is USA Martial Art’s Josh Johnson, who won the title by defeating LA Hampton in the finals. Johnson shot in early for a takedown that resulted in Hampton landing awkwardly on his arm, dislocating his elbow. It was a freak accident and the end result is Johnson remains unbeaten (9-0) and is now known as champion.

Aaron Maynard completed his run at Night of Champions, defeating Sean-Paul Veilleux by triangle choke in the first round to capture the 2008 National Amateur Welterweight title. Maynard rebounded after a loss to Nick Duell at Rock N Rumble with a win over Russ Halsey at Midwest Combat Challenge 5 to earn the title shot. He then rose to the occasion with a win over a very tough Veilleux for the right to be
called champion.

Instigator Fight Team’s AJ Aeschlimann remained undefeated (6-0) with his unanimous
decision victory over Chris Lozano to win the 2008 National Amateur Middleweight title. Aeschlimann used his size advantage and wrestling prowess to control the fight and walk out with the gold. After the win, Aeschlimann made his intentions known that he plans to make the move to the Pro Series at some point in 2009.

Dane Bonnigson became the first ever independent fighter to win NAAFS National
Amateur gold, when he defeated Marc Strickland by TKO in the first round to became
the National Amateur Light Heavyweight champion. Bonnigson remained a quiet unknown for most of the year, but kept racking up victories and hasn’t stopped.

The 2008 National Amateur Heavyweight title fight between Adam Farrell and John Hawk ended with a high level of controversy and as a result, there is currently no champion. A point deduction to Farrell in round two changed the landscape of the judge’s score cards when it was time render a decision. Instead of it being
unanimous for Farrell, the fight was ruled a majority draw. The NAAFS is currently investigating into the matter and will render a decision on who will be the 2008 National Amateur Heavyweight champion.

Sarah Kaufman vs Kaitlin Young MMA Fight

Sarah Kaufman vs Kaitlin Young MMA Fight KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Aug. 27, 2012) – Former Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight (135 pounds) Champion Sarah Kaufman (15-2) of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada will look to return to her winning ways when she faces off with prolific striker Kaitlin Young (7-6-1) of St. Louis Park, Minn. at the Invicta Fighting Championships world championship women’s Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) event at Memorial Hall in Kansas City on Saturday, Oct. 6.

Sarah Kaufman vs Kaitlin Young MMA Fight

Tickets for Invicta FC 3: Penne vs. Sugiyama, priced from $25, are on sale and can be purchased at Memorial Hall box office (913) 549-4853), online at Ticketmaster.com and InvictaFC.com and by phone at (800) 745-3000.

“Invicta FC has made huge waves for women in MMA over the last five months. It’s been amazing to watch so many of the top women all fight on the same card, so I’m looking forward to be a part of their next show,” said the 26-year-old Kaufman, who is looking to rebound from a first-round (:54) submission (armbar) defeat at the hands of undefeated Strikeforce champion Ronda Rousey.

“Kaitlin is a very strong 135 pounder,” said Kaufman. “She’s got a lot of height and is quite technical in many areas. I’m excited to get in there against her, especially in the wake of the worst performance of my career. I’m hungry to get back in there and prove why I’m ranked at the top of my weight class.”

Sarah Kaufman vs Kaitlin Young MMA Fight

A former professional dancer, Kaufman began training MMA after a martial arts studio opened underneath her dance studio seven years ago. Her competitive spirit pushed her to enter the fight world and, under trainer Adam Zugec, she reeled off victories in her first 12 professional bouts, defeating fellow former Strikeforce champion Miesha Tate as well as superstar Alexis Davis and submission ace Shayna Baszler along the way.

Like Kaufman, the 26-year-old Young will look to return to the win column following a second round (3:34) submission (rear-naked choke) loss at the hands of rising star Liz Carmouche on the last Invicta FC card on July 28.

“Sarah is a great fighter who has made a big name for herself in the sport, so I’m looking forward to the challenge,” said Young, who took up Tae Kwon Do at the age of 14 and earned her black belt in the discipline before discovering Muay Thai.

To date, Young has earned six of her seven professional wins by KO. In her third start, she scored a memorable KO on Tate with a head kick just 30 seconds into their matchup.

Sarah Kaufman vs Kaitlin Young MMA Fight

Young earned “Fight of the Night” honors at the inaugural Invicta FC event, slugging it out with Leslie Smith in a relentless, see-saw battle for three rounds before the fight was declared a majority draw.

In the Invicta FC 3 main event, superstar Jessica Penne (9-1) of Laguna Hills, Calif. will face off with undefeated phenom Naho “Sugi Rock” Sugiyama (8-0) of Kyoto, Japan at atomweight (105 pounds) in the first-ever Invicta FC women’s world title bout.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu brown belt Shayna “The Queen of Spades” Baszler (14-7) of Sioux Falls, S.D. will return to action in the bantamweight co-main event and take on Invicta FC 2 winner Sarah “The Monster” D’Alelio (6-2) of San Jose, Calif.

Another Invicta FC 2 victor, Barb “Little Warrior” Honchak (6-2) of Bettendorf, Iowa, will collide with rising star and furious finisher Aisling “Ais The Bash” Daly (13-3) of Dublin, Ireland in a flyweight (125 pounds) contest.

Invicta FC will welcome one of the original pioneers of women’s MMA, submission expert Tara LaRosa (21-2) of Woodstown, N.J., who will lock horns at flyweight with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Vanessa Porto (14-5) of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Leslie “The Peacemaker” Smith (3-2-1) of Pleasant Hill, Calif. will meet an opponent to be determined in a bantamweight matchup. Smith’s original opponent, Cat Zingano, has withdrawn from their scheduled matchup.

Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson (9-3) of Albuquerque, N.M. will also make her first start under the Invicta FC banner against Lacey “The Ladie” Schuckman (7-5) of Lakewood, Colo. in an atom weight scrap.

In the leadoff main card bout, Julia “The Jewel” Budd (3-2) of Port Moody, Canada will meet Elaina “Beef” Maxwell (7-4) of San Jose, Calif. at featherweight (145 pounds).

The six-bout preliminary card will be topped by a strawweight (115 pounds) matchup between Carla Esparza (7-2) of Redondo Beach, Calif. and Lynn Alvarez (5-2) of Las Vegas.

Two undefeated prospects, Ashley Cummins (3-0) of St. Louis, MO. and Joanne Calderwood (3-0) of Glasgow, Scottland will collide at flyweight.

Amy Davis (3-3) of Idaho Falls, Idaho will face Stephanie Frausto (3-4) of Middletown, Ohio in an atomweight affair.

Fresh off her professional debut win at Invicta FC 2, Jessamyn Duke (1-0) of Richmond, Ky. will face unbeaten Marciea Allen (1-0) of Sioux Falls in a bantamweight battle.

Tecia Torres (0-0) of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and Kaiyana Rain (0-0) of Los Angeles, Calif. will make their respective professional debuts against each other at strawweight.

Unbeaten Xtreme Couture prospect Katalina Malungahu (2-0) of Las Vegas, Nev. will battle an opponent to be determined at featherweight after her original opponent, Taylor Stratford, was forced to withdraw from the bout due to a knee injury.

Invicta FC MMA Fight Announces Stacked

In the leadoff main card bout, Julia “The Jewel” Budd (3-2) of Port Moody, Canada will meet Elaina “Beef” Maxwell (7-4) of San Jose, Calif.

Jessica Penne vs. Naho Sugiyama

The 29-year-old Jessica Penne will move to headlining status after a spectacular co-main event showing on Invicta FC’s inaugural card on April 28 when she stopped Lisa Ellis-Ward with an onslaught of punches in the third round (2:48) of their matchup shortly after breaking Ellis-Ward’s nose with a knee strike. A lifelong athlete, Penne was a competitive swimmer before stumbling upon a pair of boxing gloves and deciding to try her hand at MMA.

Naho Sugiyama will put her perfect record on the line in The United States for the first time since she began tearing through the ranks of professional competitors in Japan three years ago. On Dec. 17, 2011, the 34-year-old was crowned a champion in Japanese all-women’s promotion JEWELS after defeating two opponents – Kikuyo Ishikawa and Misaki Takimoto – in one night of action.

Shayna Baszler vs. Sarah D’Alelio

The charismatic, 32-year-old Shayna Baszler helped create an electric atmosphere at Memorial Hall on July 28 by engaging McMann in an all-out war for three rounds before losing a heartbreaking decision. A fearsome grappler, Baszler has earned the respect of the fight world by earning 13 of her 14 victories with submissions, including her patented hold that she dubbed the “shwing.”

Sarah D’Alelio, 31, pulled off a stunning upset at the Invicta FC event on July 28, tapping out Porto, a far more advanced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu player with a beautifully executed reverse triangle armbar in the first round (3:16) of their meeting. To date, D’Alelio has notched five of her six wins by way of submission.

Barb Honchak vs. Aisling Daly

Barb Honchak turned in a dominant performance at Invicta FC 2, scoring a second round (1:22) TKO on Bethany Marshall with a barrage of punches to notch her sixth career win. A protégé of UFC veteran Steve Berger who recently relocated to Quad Cities, Iowa to train at Miletich Fighting Systems, the 32-year-old Honchak will look to secure her sixth consecutive victory.

The 24-year-old Daly is ranked amongst the top five competitors in the super flyweight division. She holds a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has earned 6 of her 13 career victories by way of submission and 5 by way of KO.

Tara LaRosa vs. Vanessa Porto

Tara LaRosa has been nearly unstoppable throughout her decade long professional MMA career, defeating a host of fellow superstars, including Baszler, Kelly Kobold and Alexis Davis. Between 2004 and 2009, the 34-year-old went unbeaten in 15 consecutive starts. LaRosa will seek her fourth straight win in her Invicta FC debut

Invicta FC MMA Fight Announces Stacked

Following her upset defeat at the hands of D’Alelio, which snapped a four-fight win streak, the 28-year-old Porto will look to regain her stride in the women’s super flyweight division. Trained by her husband, Pedro Iglesias, whom Porto met after walking into Iglesias’ gym for the first time in 2004, Porto has shown off her mastery of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by earning 10 of her 14 career wins via submission.

Leslie Smith vs. Cat Zingano

Leslie Smith will return to the Invicta FC cage after a fractured wrist kept her on the sidelines from competing on the promotion’s second card on July 28. At the inaugural Invicta FC event on April 28, the 29-year-old Smith earned “Fight of the Night” honors for her brutal, toe-to-toe war with Kaitlin Young that was declared a draw after a three-round see-saw battle.

Zingano, a brilliant finisher who has earned four of her six career wins by way of either KO or submission, will enter the cage for the first time this year and look to extend her perfect record that she has been building since 2008. Trained by her husband, Professor Mauricio Zingano, the 30-year-old is a former collegiate wrestler who went on to win the 2007 World Jiu-Jitsu Championships before Invicta FC MMA Fight Announces Stacked

Michelle Waterson vs. Lacey Schuckman

Michelle Waterson is a 26-year-old student of famed MMA trainer Greg Jackson. A martial arts student since the age of 10, she holds a black belt in American Freestyle Karate and was a contestant on the Muay Thai-themed Fight Girls reality series on the Oxygen television network. On Jan. 21, Waterson ended a near two-year hiatus from competition, submitting Diana Rael with a rear-naked choke in the first round (2:12) of their matchup in Albuquerque.

Also a former Muay Thai fighter, the 24-year-old Schuckman showed the world that she is always game by accepting an Invicta FC 2 fight with undefeated JEWELS champion Ayaka Hamasaki on less than two weeks’ notice. Despite the short window of time that she had to prepare for the task, Schuckman, who has earned four of her seven career wins by way of submission, nearly pushed Hamasaki the distance of their bout before succumbing to a Hamasaki armbar with just 15 seconds remaining in the third and final round of their bout.

Julia Budd vs. Elaina Maxwell

The chiseled Budd, a 29-year-old lifelong athlete and budding fitness trainer, began her prize fighting career in the sport of Muay Thai where she chalked up several a number of notable wins, including one over superstar Gina Carano, before transitioning to MMA. She is a student of former UFC competitor and world-ranked Shooto fighter, Lance Gibson. Budd scored a first-round (3:49) TKO on Elina Nilsson with a combination of punches and elbow strikes at the Invicta FC 2 event on July 28.

Like Budd, the 33-year-old Maxwell boasts a stellar kickboxing resume. A three-time champion in San Shou rules kickboxing, she won the first American gold medal at the world Wushu (San Shou) Games in Macau, China in 2003. Maxwell reeled off her third straight MMA win on March 30, earning a unanimous decision over Ashley Sanchez in Kearney, Neb.

The six-bout preliminary card will be topped by a matchup between Carla Esparza (7-2) of Redondo Beach, Calif. and Lynn Alvarez (5-2) of Las Vegas, Nev.

Two undefeated prospects, Ashley Cummins (3-0) of St. Louis, MO. and Joanne Calderwood (3-0) of Glasgow, Scottland will collide at super flyweight.

Amy Davis (3-3) of Idaho Falls, Idaho will face Stephanie Frausto (3-4) of Middletown, Ohio in an atomweight affair.

Fresh off her professional debut win at Invicta FC 2, highly-touted Jessamyn Duke (1-0) of Richmond, Ky. will face unbeaten Marciea Allen (1-0) of Watertown, S.D. in a bantamweight battle.

Tecia Torres (0-0) of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and Kaiyana Rain (0-0) of Los Angeles, Calif. will make their respective professional debuts against each other at flyweight.

Unbeaten Katalina Malungahu (2-0) of Las Vegas, Nev. will tangle with Taylor Stratford (0-0) of Woodland, Calif. in a featherweight (145 pounds) fight.

Megumi Fujii vs Jessica Aguilar MMA

The biggest women’s tournament in women’s mma history started with two impressive wins at Bellator 24.

The Bellator 115 pound tournament began with two submissions Thursday night in Hollywood, FL.

#1 ranked Megumi Fujii proved once again that she is the number one fighter in the division, as she defeated late minute replacement Carla Esparza at :57 seconds of round 2.

Megumi Fujii vs Jessica Aguilar MMA

To Esparza’s credit, she was able to make most of the first round a kickboxing battle, but Megumi was able to get the takedown late in the round. After a lot of scrambling, Fujii was trying for several submission attempts until the bell. Fujii continued to work the submission game in the second, try her famous “Megu lock” leg submission first, than transition to the armbar for the win.

In the main event, #7 ranked Jessica Aguilar made her adoptive hometown proud by defeating #9 ranked Lynn “Lights Out” Alvarez by arm triangle choke at 4:01 of round one.

Alvarez kept it on the feet for the first part of the round, until Aguilar took her to the ground via a body lock. The rest of the match was Aguilar looking for the arm triangle choke and finally got it at 4:01.

Megumi Fujii will face the winner of #4 ranked Lisa Ward and #5 ranked 125 pounder Aisling Daly, who will face off at Bellator 26 in Kansas City in two weeks.

Jessica Aguilar faces the winner of #3 ranked 125 pounder Zoila Frausto vs. #5 ranked 115 pounder Jessica Pene at Bellator 25 in Chicago next week.

Jessica Pene: I was looking to finish early and I am pretty stoked that I was able to do that.

FG: What is next for you?
JP: My next fight is with Bellator hopefully.

FG: The women fight 3 five minute rounds in Bellator. Is this the first time you’ve fought five minute rounds?
JP: We were given the choice between three and five minute rounds. I’ve fought fives before and was ready. Our sparring and training is done in five minute intervals.

FG: You normally fight at 115. Why was this fight at 117?
JP: I think my opponent wanted to fight at 120. We compromised at 117 since I fight at 110-115 lbs.

FG: How would you describe your fight style? What do you train in?
JP: I am becoming well rounded. I love Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu. Those are the areas I am more comfortable in.

FG: How did you get started in mixed martial arts?
JP: I was interested in learning to fight; I am a very competitive person. I started training Muay Thai and then shortly after discovered Jiu Jitsu.

FG: Who has been your toughest opponent to date?
JP: I think that all of my fights have been challenging, each opponent has brought different challenges.

FG: In closing is there anything else you’d like to say?
JP: I would like to thank my coaches at Subfighter and at Legends as well as my sponsors for this fight; Tapout, duzoxin, and Fighter girls Clothing.
