Jessamyn Duke Appeals Invicta FC Loss Decision

Source: MMA Junkie Radio

Jessamyn Duke looks to have her Invicta FC 5 loss to Miriam Nakamoto overturned due to an error by referee John McCarthy. Yesterday, Duke’s team filed a report with the Missouri State Office of Athletics asking that the bout be overturned to a no contest.

“I think he made an error in judgment,” said Duke on MMA Junkie Radio. “Maybe he thought he stopped it after the first knee or intended to. But the fact is he didn’t and an illegal strike was thrown. That’s why we’re contesting it.”
