Invicta Fighting Championships and Japan-based JEWELS this week announced that the two women’s mixed martial arts promotions have formed a strategic partnership to cross-promote the world’s top female fighters on their respective fight cards in the United States and Japan.

As part of the new alliance, JEWELS champion Akaya Hamasaki (7-0) of Yamaguchi, Japan, will head to Kansas City, Kan., to square off with fellow undefeated star Jasminka “Impressive” Cive (5-0) of Graz, Styria, Austria, in a flyweight (115 pounds) match-up at Invicta FC 2: McMann vs. Baszler at Memorial Hall on July 28.

Yeah this is really huge news for the WMMA portion of MMA; arguably the two biggest international WMMA organizations forming a partnership.

AYAKA is going to go Ham in this fight. I see her wining via submission.

Agreed 100 %

this should definitely help spark some more interest in WMMA and hopefully get more women's fights aired

Gotto show some love for this.

I saw Hamasaki's first fight live in Jewels 9, 2 years ago. The girl is a lil pitbull. I wasn't surprised to find out that she's from Fujii's training camp.

I hope they bring Seo Hee state side as well. She's my favorite .
