It was MMA fight night — but instead of scantily clad muscle men, it was scantily clad muscle women in lingerie.
Lingerie Fighting Championships 19 featured eight matches Friday night at Silver Nugget in North Las Vegas, and contributing photographer Tom Donoghue of Donoghue Photography was onsite for his action-packed photo gallery.
LFC 19, whose referees in all-black attire look as if they could be MMA fighters themselves, will be available on more than 1,000 cable systems on VOD on Friday, July 11, 2014, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
SPOILER ALERT: Here are the results, in case you can’t wait for the VOD special:
Fight No. 1: Roxanne “The Viper” Romaro defeated Chelsea “Feisty Fists” London in Round 2 with a rear naked choke.
Fight No. 2: Susan “Tatia” Cordell defeated Riley “Nuclear” Norris in a unanimous decision.
Fight No. 3: Maxine “The Boss” Frost defeated Serina “Honey Punch” Kyle in Round 2 with a rear naked choke. Kyle suffered a knee injury late in the first round that contributed to her loss.
