WMMA Today gets you caught up on the week that was and the week that will be in women’s MMA.

10-29 Amanda “Powerhouse” Lucas’ (3-1) second trip to the Land of the Rising Sun was just as impressive as her first, this time securing a rear-naked choke victory over Mika “Hari” Harigai (6-25-1) at Deep: “Cage Impact 2011”.
