Invicta Results – New Champs, Cyborg Back with a Bang

It was a pretty crazy show – we saw two new champions and we saw Cyborg prove that machines don’t rust, even after over a year off.

There were plenty of finishes to go around, especially during the pre-lims where the live crowd was treated to a flying armbar from Rose Namajunas and some controversial knees to the face of Jess Duke…

In contrast, the pair of title fights were involved, technical, deep water fights – showing that while women’s MMA is just now making headlines, the talent pool has depth that comes from lengthy training time.
