If you didn’t already know, the announcement that UFC Fight Pass is now distributing top female MMA promotion Invicta FC content was already big news, but the bigger news is they finally announced date and fight card for Invicta FC8: Waterson vs. Tamada.
That’s right, the highly anticipated IFC8 is headlined by two Asian women MMA fighters in a championship bout. Excuse me while I implode with excitement.
Asian American Michelle “Karate Hottie” Waterson will be defending her Atomweight champion belt against Yasuko Tamada from Japan. Another notable APIA female MMA fighter is Jinh Yu Frey, also atomweight, who will be fighting her first Invicta fight against Invicta veteran Jodi Esquibel. Time to get my Fight Pass.
