Smashley talks Invicta
Dialed in and determined, Ashley Cummins can't wait for her fight Saturday at the Invicta Fighting Championships.
Cummins will be in Kansas City, Kan., to fight on the much-publicized all-female card.
Cummins is a highly-touted up-and-comer in the women's MMA . Out of St. Charles MMA/Team Vaghi, Cummins is 2-0 and will face Sofia Bagherdai (5-1).
Cummins' bout will be the second of the evening. The entire card will stream on InvictaFC.com.
Saturday begins what Invicta FC hopes is a long-term relationship with women's MMA. The promotion's first all-female card is headlined by a featherweight rematch between former Strikeforce champion Marloes "Rumina" Coenen and French standout Romy Ruyssen.
Invicta FC card features veterans of EliteXC, Strikeforce, Bellator and Fatal Femmes Fighting, as well as the MMA debut of 2008 Olympic bronze-medalist wrestler Randi Miller. Plenty of top prospects, like Cummins, will be having their biggest fights to date.
