It sucks to tear your knee up. It sucks to tear your knee up during a sporting event as a fan or participant. It sucks to tear your knee up when you’re not fighting for a title, and it especially sucks to tear your knee up at the end of the third round in a bantamweight title fight. Bantamweight, arguably the most important weight division in female MMA. It sucks, but it happens.
Lauren Murphy and Miriam Nakamoto had a hell of a fight tonight in Kansas to crown the first bantamweight Invicta champion, but the fight ended with its legs cut out from under it.
Grats to Lauren Murphy nonetheless.
