One of the top female prospects in Invicta FC Helen Peralta has been riding on an impressive two-fight winning streak beating Cheyanne Vlismas at Invicta FC 29 and before that a win over Jade Ripley via first round KO. She will now take on Kay Hansen at Invicta 29.
Ahead of her fight against Hansen, she Spoke to Bloody Elbow and said:
“I think it’s a really good matchup, for me mostly, I know she wants to work on her striking, she’s said that before, but if I were her coach I would tell her to, ‘Just play safe. Go for a takedown. We don’t know how Helen does on the ground, you have a better chance there.’’

“For me, I can’t afford to lose,” added Peralta, with passion. “[Vlismas] lost her last fight and she recovered in two days. I think her after party was better than mine, even though I was the one who won the fight. And that has a lot to do with who you know and what you are. I don’t have many things going for me over here. Seriously, sometimes I don’t have gas money to make it to training. So I can’t afford to lose.”
