Tonya Evinger wants UFC shot after beating two Invicta FC champs

According to a Jan. 1 radio interview with MMA Dude Bro, hard-hitting knockout artist Tonya "Triple Threat" Evinger (12-6 MMA, 1-0 Invicta FC) says she's hoping to fight her way into the UFC by beating two Invicta FC champions.

Evinger, 32, has laid out a plan that includes taking out Invicta FC's bantamweight champ and then dropping down to 125 pounds to challenge the promotion's flyweight titleholder.

Even though she has fought just once under the Invicta FC banner, Evinger is an 18-fight veteran who has beaten some of the top 135-pounders in the world over her 10-year career.

Evinger feels her entire body of work should be considered by Invicta FC officials, not just what she has done for the promotion itself.

"I mean, how do they pick title shots anyways? Because girls keep fighting for them? I don't know," Evinger said of Invicta FC. "I think I'm better than a lot of girls they have signed already and have coming in there, so why does that not make me eligible for a title shot?

"I just beat Sarah [D'Alelio]. I think I'll beat Lauren [Murphy]. This is what I want. I want to go in and beat Lauren. I want to take that title and then I want to challenge Barb [Honchak.] And then b**ches I'll hold two f**kin' titles and then UFC better pick me up.

"And I want to buy some t*tties and I want a Range Rover, Dana [White]."

Evinger, who is riding a four-fight win streak, defeated perennial title contender Sarah "The Monster" D'Alelio (7-5) in her first Invicta FC fight.

She has also gone the distance with some of the biggest names in the sport, including Sara McMann and Carina Damm, so it's hard to argue with Evinger's reasoning on why she deserves a title shot.

"I'm just not in the clique, so I just really think that's going to hurt my chances," Evinger said. "Whatever."
