The third fight sees two fighters in a twitter war. Veronica Rothenhausler takes on Charmaine Tweet in the debut of the new InvictaFC 155 division.
Veronica Rothenhausler (1-0): Training now at Team Alpha Male, the knockout artist has all her wins under 2 minutes. Her InvictaFC debut saw her KO Katalina Malungahu.
Charmaine Tweet (5-4): After two losses to start her pro career, Tweet has won four of her last 5, including avenging a loss to Anna Barone on her last fight. She lost to Julia Budd in her InvictaFC debut.
Tweet had been vocal since last year about fighting Rothenhausler at 155, and Rothenhausler was obliged to accept. Tweet has gone so far as make a comic of their impending match on the card. This will be a step up in competition for Rothlenhausler, but at a more comfortable weight. Another first round KO will cement her legacy.
What to expect:
We have yet to see anything more from Rothenhausler besides knockout power, but since her move to Team Alpha Male, we could see her wrestling take point if the striking battle doesn’t turn in her favor. Tweet has length and experience, so expect some patience and possible using her BJJ to neutralizer Rothenhausler.
Odds should have Tweet winning this just due to experience.
