Miriam Nakamoto is best known for her kickboxing skills, but does have one MMA bout to her name. She will debut for Invicta FC on their next card against Jessamyn Duke.
With the UFC holding their first FMMA contest in 10 days, Nakamoto wasn’t overly confident that it would last and hopes UFC president Dana White puts in an effort to make it work.
“Even if it’s not successful, I hope that Dana White sticks to his vision,” said Nakamoto on MMA Interviews. “I’m fine if they want to wrap it in a box and sell it to the public, as long as the quality of the fighter is ruthless, technical and fantastic. I hope he’s persistent.”
The first time females compete inside the Octagon will be at UFC 157 as Ronda Rousey looks to defend her newly appointed bantamweight championship against Liz Carmouche. That happens from the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA and will be the main event.
At Invicta FC 5, Nakamoto vs. Duke comes from the Meristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, MO on April 5.
