Leslie Smith had a new experience when she dropped to flyweight for her latest Invicta FC fight. By taking the decision against Jennifer Maia, Smith is looking at a future title shot.
“I’ll probably do it better next time and the time after that,” said Smith to Sherdog. “It definitely affected me when I came out and I had to mentally and emotionally just decide it wasn’t going to affect me.”
As the fight progressed, Smith felt better in the later rounds and took the unanimous decision. She’s 3-1 for the promotion and has a draw to Kaitlin Young, who she defeated in the rematch.
Maia is even for Invicta FC at a win and loss. She’s been fighting since 2009.
