Undefeated Flyweight Emily Corso Signs to Invicta

corso 01 bPacific northwest standout Emily Corso has signed to Invicta.

Corso made the announcement of the signing Thursday on her blog. She won all but 1 of her fights as an amateur, finishing in her nine wins. She has submitted her past eight opponents; which includes her four pro bouts.

She made a stellar pro debut at Intense Championship Fighting with back to back wins in one night. You can see her fight with Ariel Beck from the card below. You can see out post fight interview with Corso from this earlier this year here.

No word on when Corso will make her debut.

corso 01 bEmily Corso has been waiting six months to make her pro debut. The wait paid off two fold.

After Ariel Beck’s opponent got a case of strep throat the day before the fight, Corso was offered to face the local star barring any injures against her first opponent Lynnell House. Never one to back down from a challenge, she agreed.

Even though the House match ended in some controversy, House was able to at least get some piece of mind with the submission over Beck.

Corso went 9-1 as an amateur and is now 2-0 as a pro. All her wins by finishes.

We talked to Corso after the fights to discuss the evening’s events and her future as a pro flyweight.

After fighting once already, Emily Corso took her second pro match on the same night as she took on pro debuter Ariel Beck. Beck, a pro boxer and hometown fighter, went 3-3 in her amateur career and agreed it was time to take her career to the next level as a pro.

Corso didn’t miss a step and looked fresh as she took in some shots before getting the takedown and sinking in the rear naked choke in round 1. Corso gets back to back wins in her first pro bouts.

Emily Corso made her long awaited pro debut this past Friday, taking on Canadian pro fighter Lynnell House.

Corso (9-1 amateur) had finished in all of her wins, while House (2-1 pro) is looking to recover from her first pro loss.

Some controversy happened at the end of the fight, when the referee jumped in to stop the fight, thinking there was a tap when both fighters deny there was one.

Corso would pick up the technical submission win and since she was able to come out of the fight mostly unscathed, would face Ariel Beck later that night (which will be posted later this week).

We talk to Corso about preparing for her pro debut and her dedication to the sport.
