Natasha Wicks to be Invicta ring card girl

source: twitter.com
 

New MMA promotions pop up daily, but Invicta Fighting Championships is different. Led by former Strikeforce matchmaker and talent relations manager Shannon Knapp, Invicta FC is an all-female MMA promotion.

Several critical issues were immediately raised. Is this going to save WMMA? Is Invicta going to go head to head with Strikeforce's female division? Does WMMA have the depth to have two world-class promotions?

And, does this mean they are going to have ring card guys?

The final question has now be answered, via the Twitter account of Natasha Wicks, winner of the 2009 Maxim UFC Octagon Girl Search.

Can someone please tell my why see got cut again? I really do not understand why the UFC cannot build up a bigger roster of ring girls so there can be some variation (especially since where usually just left with Arianny of Chandella).Anyways good for her,she really is perfect for a role of ring girl.As for all these people who say they do not give a shit about natasha....why are you posting here dummy?

 Sources within the UFC tell me it was Nastasha Wicks who scored the highest on the UFC Ring Card Engineer Pre Employment I.Q. Assessment Examination. She broke the UFC company record. She's the first UFC ring card engineer to score over 80.

is there a such thing as a perfect ten? i imagine a perfect ten would be like standing next to a nuclear explosion. lol natasha may not be a ten but she is damn close...

Not a big fan. No disrespect, she's obviously a beautiful girl just not my type. I feel like these MMA promotions could find 10's if they looked hard enough. Why not try some Latinas?
