Carla Esparza was able to hold on in the last second to secure the 2nd ever Invicta belt, the Strawweight title was kept out of reach of last minute replacement Bec Hyatt who despite being a large underdog was able to hang in 5 solid rounds with the much more experienced Esparza. A rematch 2 plus years in the making, veterans Alexis Davis and Shayna Baszler were able to snag the Fight of the Night honor for 1,500 each. While two ladies making there pro debuts took home 1k for submission of the night and knockout of the night, Rose Namajaunas and Veronica Rothenhausler respectively. Scottish Joanne Calderwood was able to keep her win streak alive blowing past last minute replacement Livia von Plettenberg.
