<![CDATA[Invicta FC 12 results: Livia Renata Souza is the new Strawweight Champion]]>Sat, 25 Apr 2015 11:04:48 GMThttp://combatbear.com/6/post/2015/04/invicta-fc-12-resultslivia-renata-souza-is-the-new-strawweight-champion.html
Kansas City, Kansas- In the headliner of Invicta FC 12 event the undefeated Brazilian Livia Renata Souza made an impressive debut at womens only MMA organization by claiming the strawweight title from finish Katja Kankaanpaa. Souza was near to stop Kankaanpaa by submission early in the fight, but the Champion survived. The second and third rounds were close where both had their moments, but in the fourth round the Brazilian pulled guard and hid her intentions by strikes from the bottom until she committed everything for triangle choke which she got at 3:58.

In the co-headliner we witnessed a rematch between Vanessa Porto and Roxanne Modafferi. While the first fight in 2008 ended by TKO in the third for Porto, this time, constantly improving, Modafferi managed to hear the final bell and even showing some good fighting skills. But still the Brazilian was mostly a step ahead scoring takedowns and landing some nice punches resulting a win for Porto via unanimous decision.

Youtube sensation Kevin Ferguson (4-2) and MMA pioneer Ken Shamrock (28-15-2) has some unfinished business to settle at Bellator 138 this summer. "Kimbo Slice" in this short interview with TMZ revealed how he wants to beat his opponent, he talks about his beard and more.
How are you going to beat Ken Shamrock?

How I beat everybody. I'm gonna put these hands on him.

Ken Shamrock, he is an old man. He's been talking a lot of trash. He talked about your beard, he said it was dirty and greasy and that it smelled.

How could you not love my beard, you know what I mean? He said that about my beard?

And he says he doesn't want to stand up with you. He wants to take you down on the ground, beat you up. For a round. He wants to punish you. 

That don't even sound right. This is something I tell my wife, you know, I'm planning on coming into this cage, we're gonna go man on man and I'm gonna knock him out. I'll break his ribs, I'll break his jaw. I will do what I do best...
