The Wiseman Report – The Iron Lady represents at UFC Fight Night 87

We saw a lot of great fights at Invicta FC 17 and UFC Fight Night 87 yesterday.

A nice moment was hometown hero Germaine de Randamie bulldozing through Anna Elmose in an impressive first round stoppage.

De Randamie’s Muay Thai was evident from the opening bell and The Netherlands loved every minute of it.

Karolina Kowalkiewicz overcame a game Heather Jo Clark to earn another unanimous decision win. Karolina’s striking shone through in the good battle.

Just one of those nice tender moments.

Invicta FC 17

Congrats to the new Invicta FC strawweight champ Angela Hill. Hill defeated Livia Renata Souza in an exciting battle in the co-main event. Hill showed dramatic improvement on the ground, getting out of several tricky situations.

While Souza was outclassed on the feet, it was close and it took a split-decision for the Brazilian to suffer her first loss.

Is Angela Lee vs Mei Yamaguchi the greatest WMMA fight of all-time? Convince me.

Valentina Shevchenko or Holly Holm? It’s the main event for UFC on FOX 20 in Chicago.

Check out my colleague Kenai Andrew’s story on 63-year-old Canadian boxer Heather “KO” Alonzo. We need more women like Heather in the game!
