Invicta FC 18 Results

Invicta FC 18 went down last night in Kansas City and you can check out all the results below.

In the main event of the evening, strawweight Alexa Grasso returned after 18 months out to claim a unanimous decision victory over Jodie Esquibel.

Grasso was able to outstrike Esquibel for the full 15 minutes, and had her opponent bleeding by the second round, to the extent that by the third the referee had to call in the cage-side doctor to check on the cut.

A comprehensive unanimous decision victory (30-27 x2, 30-26) extends the 22 year-old Grasso’s record to a perfect 8-0, and she’s now expected to face current 115lb Invicta FC champion Angela Hill next time out.

In the co-main event the 21 year-old Agnieszka Niedzwiedz made a successful debut against late replacement Christine Stanley via unanimous decision (30-27 x3), while earlier Cindy Dandois handed Jessamyn Duke her fifth loss in a row with an armbar submission in just 93 seconds.
