Raquel Pa’aluhi Wins by Unanimous Decision Against Ediane Gomes

One of the reasons I love watching mixed martial arts, especially the female fighters, is how inspiring they are in how hard they work and what they sacrifice to be the best they can be. Watching Invicta FC events always gets my blood going, and on top of that, I love following individual fighters on their Instagrams so I can see what they’re eating, how they’re working out, and the progress they make on their bodies.

One of the Invicta fighters I follow is Raquel Pa’aluhi from Hawaii, and just seeing her selfie updates on her progress makes me do more push ups.

Leaning out but still a ways to go #bantamweight #fatgirlproblems

After a lively weigh-in where she and her opponent basically looked like they were about to start the fight early, Pa’aluhi won by unanimous decision.

Let's get it! #invictafc12 @kaxmana @malosi1 @paaluhi @mpx2 @hakuilani
