MMA fighter, former Invicta FC Atomweight Champion, and mother Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson is featured in one of these new Samsung “Into the Galaxy” series commercials. The theme of this series appears to be people who are trying to shatter the status quo, and Waterson definitely fits the bill. Being a woman and an American of Asian descent, she fights objectification with her fists on a daily basis.
My Naruto poster came that I got on eBay!!! ナルトのポスターが来た！ #Naruto #anime A photo posted by @roxyfighter on Jan 31, 2015 at 6:58am PST Last fall, two Invicta FC fighters, Roxanne Modafferi and Jenny Liou (who will both fight in INVICTA 12 April 24th) walked out to their fights rocking out anime songs, which made me wonder, if I had become an MMA fighter, what awesome songs would I want to walk out to the […] Continue »
When the University of Maryland needed a defensive spark in the last seconds of their March Madness opener against Valparaiso, they called up reserve player Varun Ram. According to the Washington post, Ram’s late game disruption of Valparaiso’s offense caused Indian Americans around the country to take notice. As I looked into more detail about him, it seemed to me that this 5-9 point guard is really a giant in many ways. Varun Ram first […] Continue »

Cung Le is one of the most recognized American MMA fighters out […] Continue »

15 year old Karen Chen of Fremont, California took third in the US Figure Skating Nationals held last month in North Carolina. In instance that reminds me of what happened last year with Mirai Nagasu, she cannot compete internationally at the Senior World Championships in Shanghai because of how the sport’s rules are applied. The San Jose Mercury News recently published a profile on Chen that revealed her inspirations and the sacrifices that she and […] Continue »

Of course I love it when I see Asian Americans in any television commercial, but I’m especially happy to see Asian Americans in […] Continue »
Get more pictures like this from SHERDOG.COM Invicta FC 10 was supposed to feature heavy-hitter Cristiane Cyborg as headliner, but sadly an injury canceled those plans.

Waterson’s last title defense is now available on UFC’s youtube as a free fight: This highly anticipated event will also feature Jinh […] Continue »
Muay thai is a boxing style that’s a staple in Mixed Martial Arts fighting. Although I’ve never been any good at combat sports myself, I’ve always enjoyed learning different martial arts for fun and fitness, and I’ve recently been adding a little muay thai to my diet, and this style is pretty devastating. A friend shared this video with me of top 10 muay thai knockouts, and for anyone who was wondering what this style […] Continue »
