Take Away Service - Invicta FC 1: Coenen Vs Ruyssen - Edition

Welcome to It's Fighting Stupid's Take Away Service. Where we, do you, the service of letting you in on all the key take-away's from Invicta FC 1: Coenen Vs Ruyssen. First up on the Menu:

Kaitlin Young Vs. Leslie Smith: What MMA is all about.
This was easily the fight of the night and maybe fight of the year (for WMMA) so far. It had everything! featuring wild stand up exchanges, exciting scrambles and incredible displays of tenacity, heart and endurance. Fittingly the fight ended in a draw, with both fighters receiving their win bonuses, as well as major buzz for a proposed rematch said to be in the works for Invitca FC 2.

Two more take-aways after the Jump.

Invicta FC shows how it's done.
Whether it's the high quality stream, the quick turn around in between fights or just having the time, date, and main event of their next card. Invicta FC had all right moves on Saturday, the main card was booked very well with Jessica Penne and Lisa Ellis as well as Kaitlin Young Vs. Leslie Smith really illustrating the competitive matchmaking. While Mauro Ranallo, King Mo, and Julie Kedzie did a great job calling all the action, which brings me to my next point.
King Mo's gotta future in the broadcast booth.
Serving along side Mauro Ranallo, and Julie Kedzie as an analyst for Saturdays broadcast. The former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champ, made his commentary debut and did a great job. Breaking down the action technically, while remaining entertaining, informative and engaging.

Invicta FC 2 goes down July 28th in Kansas City, Kansas and will feature 2004 Olympic silver medalist Sara McMann taking on her toughest test to date when she faces “The Queen of Spades” Shayna Baszler.
