Ayaka Hamasaki has been ruling Invicta’s atomweight division with an iron fist, crushing all 105-pounders who cross her path, but tonight she went up to strawweight to try her luck against Brazilian badass Livia Renata Souza. And things got ugly.
Opening up with leg-kicks and then cracking the champ with repeated right hands, Souza was on Hamasaki like a hungry jungle cat. Maybe it was the jump in weight class, or maybe Souza simply nailed her good and the Japanese fighter was out of it, but Hamasaki had nothing, and in no time Souza was pounding her out.
Crikey, what a mauling.
