What's better than scoring a five second knockout in just your second amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) fight?
Doing it again in your third.
That's what Veronica Rothenhausler did when she pasted Ashlee Evans-Smith at Tuff-N-Uff: "Festibrawl 2" earlier this month from the South Point Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. You know what they say about always keeping your hands up, but in this case, it didn't really matter.
Right down Broadway.
That makes "The Heartbreaker" 3-0 in her amateur career, all by way of knockout or technical knockout, and according to the gang at Inside MMA (via Heavy.com), she's now ready to go pro. The question is, where will she end up?
Not too long ago, Strikeforce was the premiere destination for women's MMA. Under the ZUFFA regime, the opportunities may be few and far between for fighters not named Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey. The good news is, Invicta Fighting Championship has a home for the ladies as does Jewels overseas.
Keep your eye on this one.
