November 2014 Rankings – Busy Weekend Gains Quick Impact

After a busy weekend of about two dozen pro WMMA fights across the world, we have seen some interesting changes to Unfiied rankings.

Since InvictaFC 9 happened Saturday, the Unified Committee decided to include Saturday’s results. However, the DEEP-JEWELS results on Monday morning will be included in December’s rankings.

Also several inactive fighters have been dropped off the list…


Coenen vs. Bucci courtesy Bellator
Coenen vs. Bucci courtesy Bellator

InvictaFC champion Cyborg Justino has been left off the featherweight rankings due to inactivity. Bellator’s Marloes Coenen regains the top spot after her win over Annalisa Bucci. The undefeated Pannie Kianzad is now #2 in the division, followed by Bellator’s Julia Budd (#3) and Invicta’s Faith Van Duin (#4).

Bucci’s loss to Coenen drops her a spot to #6, and Talita Nogueira takes her place at #5. Maria Hougaard’s loss to Amanda Bell drops her out of the top 10, with Bell debuting at #9.Tweet (#8) and Gabrielle Holloway (#10) round out the featherweight top 10.


The top 5 in the strawweights remain the same this month (TUF 20 fighters are exempt from dropping out); however, Karolina Kowalkiewicz’s win over Mizunki Inoue at Invicta gains the Polish fight the #6 spot. Inoue drops to #10.


Lacey Schukman’s inactivity in the atomweight division drops her out of the rankings, giving Jodie Esquibel the #5 spot after her win over Nicdali Rivera-Colonac this past weekend. The rest of the top 10 remains the same.


Bantamweight stays pat this month.


Several flyweight fighters will be dropping this month and in December to strawweight, so we expect some major changes come the end of the month.

You can see the entire Unified Women’s Rankings here.

Tuff-n-uff Announces 145 and 155 Tournament for Invicta Contract

tnu_invicta_coverTuff-n-uff will continue its commitment to Invicta with two more tournaments.

Thanks to the success of their 115 pound series, the promotion announced the start of an 145 and 155 tournament November 7 in Las Vegas. The winner will be signed to InvictaFC.

The two 4 women tournaments will culminate in January with the crowning of two champions. Jamie Moyle won the 115 tournament title earlier this year.

Tuff-n-uff is looking for fighters with three fights and a winning record to participate. If you want to take part comment and we will send you the details.

Invicta Beefs up 135 & 145 Divisions through New Signings

It was a busy weekend for Invicta as they have have signed more talent to their featherweight roster.

Andria Wawro will join a re-signed Amanda Bell to 145 division. Kelly McGill and Cassie Criasno has also signed to Invicta but will be dropping to 135 for the promotion.

The signings comes on the heels of Bellator announcing their featherweight division and signing InvictaFC vets Marloes Coenen and Julia Budd. Cyborg Justino and Ediane Gomes are dropping to bantamweight and the new signees will compliment two divisions in need of talent.

Wawro
Wawro
Crisano
Crisano

Wawro (3-1) has a win over Crisano by decision. A five year vet of the sport, she submitted Jessica Miele this past June.

The Maryland native Crisano (2-2) took a recent trip to Brazil to gain some experience. Her last match ended in controversy as the referee awarded her opponent the win due to disqualification.

Bell (2-2) got her biggest win of her career, defeating Marina Shafir a few weeks ago. She has won back to back since her last Invicta outing. She had changed gyms.and has made a vast improvement in her fighting.

McGill made her pro MMA debut in June with a first round TKO over Leslie Rodriguez. She has a 7 second KO as an amateur.

No word on when the four will make their InvictaFC debuts. We are expecting more signings in the coming week.

The MRS – July 4, 2014

No word on when she will debut with the promotion.

Rumors

InvictaFC 8 is now looking at a September date. Most likely date is September 20, the same day Miesha Tate will face Rin Nakai in Japan. Since that card will be on Fight Pass (and out of the country), would make sense to help promote the channel.


By the looks of it, UFC fighter Leslie Smith maybe an assistant coach for TUF 20. Gilbert Melendez and Smith have trained a great deal together.


Upcoming Fights

Pro MMA

Rousey and Davis
Rousey and Davis

UFC champion Ronda Rousey has her toughest challenge to date (in her own words) against Alexis Davis Saturday at UFC 175.

The fight has become about “BJJ vs. Judo”, as Judo black belt Rousey wants to prove her art is better than BJJ. Davis is a black belt in Japanese and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and feels her skills on the ground will be able to negate the armbar, and she will tap Rousey.

Both weighed in Friday, with Rousey (135) and Davis (135) both coming in on weight.

The match will serve as the co-main event and will be live on ppv Saturday.


On Sunday, Sarah Moras and Alexis Dufresne will make their octagon debuts at The Ultimate Fighter 19 finale in Vegas live on Fox Sports 1.

Moras  has a win over TUF 18 winner Juliana Pena, which Pena avenged in the semi-finals of the show. Moras went undefeated as an amateur and finished in all of her pro wins.

Dufresne (5-0) has finished all of her opponents in the first round with her longest match being 2:20. She got a 45 second TKO over Kim Couture in February, and will look to make her bantamweight debut in the UFC.

The match is set to air on Fox Sports 1 on the preliminary portion of the card.

DEEP-JEWELS has announced their next card. The promotion’s 5th event will take place August 9th in Tokyo. The news was broke for the US audience by the CJ Report.

No matches were announced, but will mark the return of 115 champion Ayaka Hamsaki. Hamasaki had surgery on her knee after her last fight, a loss to current UFC signee Claudia Gadelha at Invicta last July. It is susepcted Hamasaki will be defending her D-J title against either 115 tournament winner Emi Tomimatsu or InvictaFC vet Mizuki Inoue. Both are set to fight on the card.

Joeclyn Lybarger has signed a multi-fight deal with RFA. The promotion announced the signing Thursday. Lybarger (3-1) won her RFA debut with an unanimous decision over Rosa Acevedo in April.


Julie Kedzie is moving to Kansas City to fulfill her role as a full time matchmaker, commentator, and consultant for Invicta. With the move, she leaves her long time home of Albuquerque and her coaching and mentoring job at Jackson’s MMA. In the eight years at Jackson’s, she started one of the most recognized and accomplished female MMA teams in the country.

We look forward to her continuing efforts to improve and expand Invicta and it’s roster.


Interesting state we were discussing on twitter this week. Currently Invicta’s women’s divisions has more countries represent than the UFC’s women’s division.

  • Invicta (10): USA, Mexico, Canada, Brazil, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Netherlands, Finland, and Poland
  • UFC (8): USA, Canada, Brazil, Australia, Scotland, Russia, Netherlands, and Finland

The UFC number could increase by two countries if Helena Harper (England) and Ais “The Bash” Daly (Ireland) is added to TUF 20.


Jessica Aguilar stated during a conference call for the World Series of Fighting 10 that she is being paid on par with the male champions under contract with the promotion. She has two more fights on her contract, including her upcoming title fight with Emi Fujino June 21 in Vegas, which will air on NBS Sports Net. She express she is going to “see what happens” after the contract expires to decide to stay with WSOF or look for other offers.

Aguilar has been doing vlogs to chronicle her training and life coming up to her defending her belt. You can watch them here.

Rumors

Cage Warrior’s head Graham Boylan stated during a post event interview last weekend he is planning on doing an all female card (or two) by the end of the year. He has 29 female fighters under contract.

Rivalries Abound as Invicta Relaunches

Modafferi and LaRosa 2010
Modafferi and LaRosa 2010

As speculation starts in terms of who will face who in the upcoming Invicta cards, several story lines have been developing recently or lingering for years.

For those recent fans to the women’s divisions and not aware of these, we complied a list for some rivalries to look out for.

—–

Cindy Dandois and Marloes Coenen

Cindy Dandois made her MMA debut in what was then the biggest WMMA upset of all time. Dandois defeated former Strikeforce champion Marloes Coenen by unanimous decision in 2009. Dandois is planning on dropping to 135 in Invicta and looks to make the transition to the UFC. Coenen, still stinging from a loss to Cyborg Justino, would love to avenge the loss and a drop would get be back in the title hunt at bantamweight.

Michelle Ould and Zoila Frausto

Before Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey, the most heated rivalry in WMMA was between Michelle Ould and Zoila Frausto. Their first meeting ended with Ould suffering an injury that sidelined her from competition for over a year. Ould soon blamed the humidity and sweat for the difficulty in fighting Frausto (they were fighting outside during the summer) and has wanted to avenge the loss. Frausto, who was already on Ould’s case at weigh-ins, took offence to some of Ould’s comment and a war of words broke out post fight. Even though the beef has cooled a bit several years later, there is opportunity for these two to resolve their issues.

Roxanne Modafferi and Tara LaRosa

This is a friendly rivalry that has brought some of the best matches to the cage. The two veterans and good buddies prove that you can see a great fight without any malice or hatred towards your opponent. LaRosa took their first fight in 2006 by unanimous decision. Four years later, Modafferi would avenge the loss by a split decision over LaRosa, a match the would win “WMMA Match of the Year” for 2010. Four years later, fans want to see the rubber match between the two and Invicta would be a meaningful place to settle the series.

Marina Shafir and the featherweight division

Marina Shafir may not be signed to InvictaFC yet, but it’s hard not to see the rising star of the 145 division not be a part of the top female promotion in the world. Either way Shafir has a target on her back.

The major one is the current featherweight champion Cyborg Justino, who sees a win over Shafir as way to get UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey’s attention and goat her into a fight. Shafir state she wanted several fights first, but Cyborg was the ultimate goal.

Shafir doesn’t have an easy road ahead of her. Two other featherweights are wanting their shot at the rising prospect. Tuff-n-uff featherweight tournament champion Jessica Zomchik was on the way to facing Shafir, but Shafir decided to turn pro. Zomchik recently turned pro as well, and is still pursuing a match with Shafir.

Current InvictaFC signee Tamikka Brents has stated she wants make a name for herself getting a win over Shafir.

Lauren Murphy and Miriam Nakamoto

An injury ended their first match, but the bickering has heated up more since the match. Nakamoto felt she was winning until the injury, while Murphy felt she was taking the uphand. Without a clear winner, both have been on social media thowing verbal jabs at each other. We are still waiting for Nakamoto to heal up, which won’t be until at least the end of the year.

 

Tuff-n-uff Promoter Jeff Meyer Talks Partnership with Invicta; Future of Company

Jeff Meyer with Jessica Zomchik
Jeff Meyer with Jessica Zomchik

Tuff-n-uff MMA has come a long way in 20 years.

Considered one of the best amateur MMA promotions in the U.S., Tuff-n-uff has done a lot for the female fighters and have turned out stars that are currently in the UFC and Invicta.

The promotion is continuing their efforts to make world class fighters even after the tragic passing of founder and CEO Barry Meyer. His brother Jeff has taken his mission to continue producing talent and put on solid shows.

Saturday, the promotion announced their 20th anniversary show is set for June 7th at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, in hopes to break the arena’s attendance record. You can get a free ticket by going to Unlvtickets.com. They are also seeking donations for the Three Square Food Bank and people are encouraged to bring a canned food item to the event.

The card will feature several female bouts including the finals of the Tuff-n-uff strawweight tournament. The winner between Jamie Moyle and Molly Wren-Holms will earn an Invicta contract and be declared tournament champion.

We talked to Jeff Meyer about the impact of the promotion throughout the years,  the new partnership with Invicta, and what the future brings.

Rumors

A Brazilian website is reporting the World Series of Fight is looking to book Cyborg Justino versus Holly Holm for sometime next year.

Justino is currently sign with Invicta, and she is at the end of her contract after her next match. InvictaFC president Shannon Knapp has told us that Justino will defend her 145 title against India Gomes in June.

As of now, Justino’s management has stated they are not interested in signing with the WSOF anytime soon.


Speaking of Invicta, Knapp is expected to make an announcement next week about the June event and a possible tv deal.

Should be noted the Fox and the UFC not only recognized InvictaFC in their graphics and commentary Wednesday, but they also used Invicta footage to pump up the fight between Sarah Kaufman and Leslie Smith. UFC and Fox never does this…


According to Dana White, Ronda Rousey requested to defend her title on the July 5th card. White noted that Cat Zingano was still dealing with “personal issues” and was the reason she wasn’t available. Miesha Tate stated this week she is picking Rousey to win over challenger Alexis Davis. Liz Carmouche refused to pick.


White also mentioned he is working on getting the Strikeforce fights on Fightpass. Due to a provision in their Strikeforce deal with Showtime, they aren’t allowed to air the complete fights anywhere. They would also need to edit sponsors out of the fights.
