Megumi Fujii earns an Awakening Outstanding Contribution Award
Megumi Fujii

Yesterday marked the one year anniversary since the final fight by one of WMMA’s biggest stars – Megumi Fujii. This incredible athlete’s accomplishments, both inside and out of MMA, have inspired women in her home country of Japan and around the world. In a career that stretches across Judo, Sambo, BJJ, Shootboxing and MMA competitions, and includes two Black Belts to her name, Megumi has made a name for herself as one of the best female fighters in the world. Her dedication and success in martial arts, and her humbleness through it, is now passed on to the students that she instructs and coaches. We are extremely pleased to be able to award Megumi Fujii with the Awakening Outstanding Contribution Award for her work in the martial arts community. More

Invicta 9 is scheduled for November 1st in Davenport, Iowa and will be the first event held outside of Kansas City. Barb Honchak returns to defend her Flyweight title in the headlining bout, opposite Japan’s Takayo Hashi. “The Little Warrior” is 9-2, having last fought in December of 2013, defeating challenger Leslie Smith in her first title defence in a fight of the night performance. Barb has not been defeated since 2010. Takayo Hashi comes into this fight with a 15-4-1 record, and is no stranger to the spotlight. She competed for the inaugural Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Championship in 2010, losing by decision to Sarah Kaufman. She has two titles to her name though, most recently the 61kg (135 lbs) Deep-Jewels Middleweight Title in May of this year. The only losses from these two fighters have been to UFC or fellow Invicta athletes.

Invicta 10 will quickly follow up on December 5th, with the highly anticipated bantamweight debut of Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino. No opponent or venue has been announced yet. Previous rumours had included Ediane Gomes, however she lost to Tonya Evinger on the recent Invicta 8 card.

Final 8 TUF 20 Cast Revealed

Final 8 TUF 20 Cast Revealed

The cast of TUF 20 has been revealed! For the first time, the entire cast of The Ultimate Fighter will be women, with 16 strawweights competing for the inaugural UFC Championship belt! Eleven fighters from Invicta Fighting Championships were signed to the UFC back in December, and eight of those women will be competing. Unfortunately, three athletes will not be on the show, as Paige VanZant is underage, Juliana Lima is not fluent in English, and Claudinha Gadelha withdrew due to the frequent weight cuts. However, Joanne Calderwood, Tecia Torres, Rose Namajunas, Alex Chambers, Emily Kagan, Felice Herrig, Bec Rawlings (formerly Hyatt) and Invicta FC Champion Carla Esparza make up the first half of the TUF 20 cast.

Joining them are the other talented cast members who tried out April 28th in Las Vegas, who were announced as part of International Fight Week at a UFC press conference earlier today. Here are your final 8 TUF 20 athletes!

With less than two weeks to go until The Ultimate Fighter season 20 filming gets underway, we’re taking a look at the twenty-seven athletes vying for the 8 remaining cast positions, and the 2 alternate places.

On yesterday’s list, we took a quick look at the fighters with winning pro MMA records with more than three fights. While that list holds many of the favourites to be cast due to their successful experience, it is still worth keeping an eye out for some surprises. TUF 18 saw a fighter with a 1-3-0 record make it all the way to the finale – that lady of course was Jessica Rakoczy, a world champion boxer, whose MMA record hid her wealth of fighting experience. With that in mind, here are the other 12 names that may still be selected:

The Cast of TUF 20
With taping commencing on July 1st, we’re less than two weeks away from the start of TUF 20 filming! Eight athletes from Invicta Fighting Championships are already cast for the first all-female season of The Ultimate Fighter. Thirty-six other women tried out on April 28th in Las Vegas for the remaining eight places and two alternate positions. Last year, it wasn’t until August after filming had finished for TUF 18 that the UFC officially announced the cast. However, speculation is already underway for this season, which has a monumental prize at the end – the inaugural UFC Strawweight Championship Title!

Since the tryouts took place, nine female fighters have already competed in or are scheduled to be in upcoming bouts, including: Angela Hill, Karina Taylor, Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger, Jillian Lybarger, Danielle Taylor, Tyra Parker, Amy Montenegro, Mandy Polk and Sarah Schneider, and so they will not be a part of TUF 20.

Twenty-seven possible athletes remain. Today we will be looking at the 15 of those that have had more than 3 professional MMA fights and maintain a winning record. Those ladies are:
