Kansas City, Mo. – Invicta Fighting Championships today released the third episode of “Through the Ashes” the ongoing documentary series produced by the promotion and presented by Victory Beef.
Each episode of “Through the Ashes” chronicles the martial arts journey of a single Invicta athlete, including never-before-told stories of overcoming adversity inside and outside the cage.
Episode three features Invicta atomweight contender and full-time police officer Ashley “Smashley” Cummins (6-4). The Missouri native, who now resides in San Diego, takes us inside the struggles and triumphs of being a lifelong athlete and martial artist, balancing two very demanding and challenging careers as a professional fighter and officer of the law.
“I want to represent my new gym and my new police department,” said Cummins. “I’m really hungry for this win and to show people what I’m capable of in the atomweight division.”
Episode three can be viewed in its entirety below:
Direction and Editing: Cynthia Vance
