Those who have followed Invicta or saw the first fight between Sarah and Leslie were noticeably excited when this match up came about. I've noticed there are people, who have not seen the first fight, so I thought I'd put together a few links that should get you amped and hyped, as you should.
It's absolutely insane it took 2 injuries for Leslie Smith to get the call up. Based on the interview below she seems super loyal to Shannon Knapp, but I'm happy for Leslie that two of Kaufman's opponents got injured. It does make any sense to keep fighting at 125 (she's been there the last two fights since the split decision against Kaufman).
The fight will air around 5 pm EST/2 pm PST today! April 16th

3 of the best Leslie Smith fights.. seriously Leslie Smith never has a bad fight though! "Chick Diaz", but honestly the Diaz’s do have average fights at times whereas Leslie does not.
Leslie Smith says some pretty interesting stuff in an interview with my main man Mindenhall
