The bantamweight title of the all-female Invicta Fighting Championship was on the line on Saturday night. Tonya Evinger defended the belt against a strong challenge from Colleen Schneider. But it wasn’t the result that set tongues wagging. It was the tongues themselves…
Evinger went in for a BIG kiss with MMA reporter and ringside announcer Laura Sanko and to say it took Sanko by surprise would be an understatement.
The openly gay Evinger was being interviewed by Sanko, when she claimed she wanted to win “the moment of the year”. Then turned to her interviewer and planted one right on her lips…

Tonya was quick to hit out at her detractors online posting this up on social media:
“So to all my haters out there stirring the pot over my attempt to win “moment of the yr”, take a chill pill and relax. Me and laura are friends and not everyone is as fragile flowers as you guys, some ppl have a sense of humor. Thx again @laura_sanko for bn such a good sport and helping me win this time around..#momentoftheyear #voteforme”
