Invicta FC 105-pound champion Alesha Zappitella is coming for atomweight GOAT status when she returns to the cage later this year.
Zappitella (8-2-0, 1 NC) is coming off a breakout 2020 after going 3-0 and ending it by submitting Ashley Cummins to capture the Invicta FC atomweight championship. Also known as ‘Half Pint, Zappitella believes she is the “baddest woman on the planet” at 105lbs and is willing to prove it. The 25-year-old took to her Instagram page on Sunday to release a stunning new shot of herself along with a bold caption.
“Just a reminder – I am the baddest woman on the planet at 105lbs. Given the chance – I will prove that I am also – right up there with the baddest women on the planet at 115lbs as well.” Zappitella wrote.
Zappitella’s last loss at atomweight was in August 2019, a controversial split decision defeat to RIZIN’s Kanna Asakura.
Ayaka Hamasaki, the reigning RIZIN atomweight champ, and Seo Hee Ham, are considered by most to be the two best women’s atomweight fighters on the planet. Zappitella believes she has what it takes to earn this spot and is keen to prove it if given the opportunity.
