Former UFC fighter Pearl Gonzalez showed that she was worth the price of admission by earning a dominant win on her bare-knuckle debut.
Gonzalez routed opponent Charisa ‘Sweetheart’ Sigala to score a unanimous decision victory at BKFC 18 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Florida on Saturday. ‘The Chi-Town Princess’ picked up a clean sweep 50-45 across the scorecards, while her opponent sported a hematoma and some nasty swelling around her left eye at the conclusion of the contest.
“I’m not a brawler, I’m a mixed martial artist,” the 34-year-old said.
“I’m learning to be a boxer and I’m gonna come in here and show technique and skill, and every fucking day, I’m getting better. Watch the fuck out!”
After the fight, she shwed off her hands that were incredibly swollen after battering her opponent through five rounds.
Gonzalez – who owns a 10-5 MMA record – made fans go crazy when she sported a pale-blue bikini set off with pearls during the weigh-in appearance on Friday.
