Relive Bloodiest Female MMA Fight of All-Time
The YouTube video has since been taken down due to the UFC acquiring the library for UFC Fight Pass. You can watch it here on Fight Pass.
History would be made at the very first Invicta Fighting Championships back on April 28, 2012 as Jessica Penne would bloody Lisa Ellis up so badly that more than two and a half years later it is still considered to be the bloodiest female mixed martial arts fight to date.
The fight would end via TKO at 2:48 in Round 3.
Relive the moment by watching the fight in its entirety at the link above.
Both Penne and Ellis would receive invitations to participate as strawweights on the Ultimate Fighter season 20. The two ladies would meet again with Penne coming out on top for a second time.
Penne would win via submission (rear naked choke) at 1:14 in Round 1.
Will this record hold true as the bloodiest female MMA fight of all time?
