The Ultimate Fighting Championship in December worked out a deal with Invicta Fighting Championship to acquire 11 of the all-female promotion’s 115-pound fighters.

Well I thought she had a great chance of winning. I still think she'll be the Champ sometime in 2015.

I think that is a mistake on her part.

Can't blame her. She got a straight contract rather than having to dick around on TV. Can get a fight in while they're filming and steamroll whomever wins. She's cutting a lot of weight to make 115lbs and she's well aware of how tough it would be to make that weight in the house.

I agree. While som my think it was a mistake for her to miss the show, you hit the nail on the head. She's gonna be the best not to appear on the show so a Title shot is pretty much locked up for her. And most importantly for her to try and continue to make the Strawweight limit that many times in a short period would be more taxing on her than good.

That sucks. But no one wants to see her end up like Gabe Reudiger so... whatever.

Good news for Tecia and JoJo
