Pearl Gonzalez returns to the Invicta FC cage on Friday for a bout with Barbara Acioly , but before she does, you should do yourself a favor and watch this promotional video that Invicta FC just put out as part of a new documentary series. In it, Gonzalez tells the story of not just how she got into the martial arts, but how she changed her entire life after a difficult upbringing that landed her in jail as an accessory to robberies committed by a drug addict boyfriend. Gonzalez’s story is a compelling one, and she tells it here with a raw honesty and self-awareness that draws you in immediately. For instance, take this reflection on her childhood.
