Invicta FC 34 Results: Vanessa Porto Wins Flyweight Belt, But Sacrifices Eye

While Bellator was busy having its fighters kick each other in the nuts last night, the ladies of Invicta FC 34 were gouging each other’s eyes out. Because, you, girls don’t have nuts.

Vanessa Porto and Pearl Gonzalez were fighting for the flyweight belt. And despite Gonzalez being a badass UFC vet, Porto was actually ahead on the scorecards by the time Round 4 rolled around…

…Which is when Porto took an accidental eye-gouge that left her bleeding (yikes!).

The rules state that if a bout must be stopped due to accidental foul, and the fight has gone on at least two rounds, then the judges’ scorecards must determine the winner. Well, that’s precisely what happened. So Porto to the decision, and the belt.

But she had to sacrifice her eye.

Pic! The Aftermath Of This Invicta FC 34 Eye Poke Is Horrifying

Last night’s mixed martial arts (MMA) action did not end all that well.

Not only did Matt Mitrione’s main event clash with Sergei Kharitonov at Bellator 215 end in 15 seconds thanks to an accidental low blow, but Vanessa Porto’s flyweight title fight opposite UFC veteran Pearl Gonzalez at Invicta FC 34 ended early as well due to an accidental eye poke.

Despite getting poked in the eye in the fourth round and eventually being ruled unable to continue, Porto still walked away with the technical decision after the action hit the judges’ scorecards. It wasn’t the best way to capture the vacant 125-pound title, but Porto was handily winning the fight up until that point anyways.

Fight fans may have been rubbed the wrong way by the fourth-round stoppage, but one look at Porto’s eye after the fight and it’s easy to see why the bout was waved off. Luckily, the Brazilian veteran shared the aftermath with fight fans with the following Instagram post:

That’s not the way the human eye is supposed to look, especially the part of Porto’s eyelid that looks like it’s missing a meaty chunk. The puss is just icing on the cake.

Luckily, Porto didn’t suffer any long-term damage to her eye and will be able to get back into the cage later this year to defend her newly-acquired flyweight title. This was her third shot at Invicta FC gold so she was willing to fight through anything to get that belt.

Gonzalez posted the following image on her Twitter account after the fight to show her respect for Porto:

I guess there’s no hard feelings for nearly taking an eye out.
