Invicta FC 4 Results: Carla Esparza crowned strawweight champion

There are countless bars and clubs across the nation featuring some form of “Ladies Night”. However, the women getting down on Saturday evening at Invicta FC 4 weren’t looking for drink specials so much as dropping their foes and did their dancing inside a cage instead of on the floor.

The card featured the organization’s crowning of a strawweight champion in a clash between Bec Hyatt-Carla Esparza as well as action from top female fighters including Amanda Nunes, Hiroko Yamanaka, and Shayna Baszler.

Esparza came out with her hand raised in the title-fight to improve her overall record of 9-2 with six stoppages to her credit. The victory was her fourth in a row, while the loss snapped Hyatt’s four-fight winning streak. The success came after Esparza’s superior wrestling allowed her to control the bout and pick up a decision win.
