For decades now, both MMA and boxing fans have been entertained by the many ring card girls that have walked the cage or ring in between rounds during millions of fights.
Things are about to change because UFC fighter Elias Theodorou announced on The MMA Hour that he’s going to be the ring card boy for the upcoming Invicta FC 28 card.
That's, MR. Ring Boy! ------ #fbf Hey @joerogan I couldn't agree more, it's about time for a "Ring Boy" to grace the octagon and soon. In fact, here's a pic from my debut this past weekend! Next stop, the big leagues, @invictafc TBA ! #TheManeEvent™ YouTube channel launches Feburary 14th! #yourwelcome ;) #ringboy #equality #shirtsoptional #invictaorbust #gobigorgohome
Theodorou, who has appeared on this site many times since its inception, had the following exchange with Sean Ross Sapp on Twitter:
Not only is Theodorou breaking barriers in the world of ring card holding, but the fighter turned ring card boy is going to be documenting the whole thing through his official Youtube channel.
While Invicta FC has made plenty of history over the years, both the promotion and Theodorou are going to be making even more history this March.
Invicta FC 28 takes place on Saturday, March 24 from the Union Events Center in Salt Lake City, Utah with Janaisa Morandin and Virna Jandiroba headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
