Hurricane Heather

I have to give her a lot of credit and respect. She went down HARD early in the bout. She struggled to get up as the bout continued on, and it kind of looked like a cartoon or a slapstick segment. She would try to get up, wobble, and fall back down. Taking a hit can be hard in general, but you add the momentum these women get, the solid wood floor, and then having to get back up on eight wheels, I don't think a lot of people could have done it.

She got looked over by the EMT and was skating again in the same bout. That is pretty bad-ass in my mind...
