On Saturday, Jan. 5, Invicta Fighting Championships held its fourth event from the historic Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan.

The 13-fight card was headlined by the promotion’s inaugural strawweight, 115-pound title fight between Carla Esparza and Australia’s Bec Hyatt. Esparza walked away with a unanimous decision win and the belt after a hard-fought battle with the Aussie.

In the night’s co-main event, bantamweight Alexis Davis avenged a 2010 defeat to Shayna Baszler with a third-round submission win.
