TUF 18's Jessamyn Duke vs. Raquel Pennington: Twitter Reacts to Intense Battle
The fight was billed as "the most intense battle of the season" and, according to most, it loved up to every word of the hype. Jessamyn Duke and Raquel Pennington scrapped, brawled, warred and every other possible synonym in a three-round war that some likened to the ever-popular Forrest Griffin vs. Stephan Bonnar.
Well, fans and fighters of women's MMA were out in force to watch and comment on the epic battle between Duke and Pennington.
Fellow TUF castmates were all over the fight.

Naturally, one of the ladies that did all the hard work chimed in as well.

Invicta President Shannon Knapp chimed in. It's worth noting that both Pennington and Duke are actually Invicta veterans. Duke fought IFC's second, third and fifth events, while Pennington fought at the second, third and fourth events.

Knapp wasn't the only person attached to Invicta to send out props. A slew of female fighters from both Invicta and elsewhere sent out support to both fighters.
