Invicta Phoenix Event outcomes and highlights.
Invicta FC returned to Memorial Corridor in Kansas Metropolis, KS with the fourth set up of its one-night, eight-woman Phoenix Event. A mixture of Invicta veterans and newcomers, eight atomweights took to the cage to battle for the subsequent shot at champion Alesha Zappitella.
Within the quaterfinals, Invicta FC, Bellator, and Rizin veteran Lindsey VanZandt secured the one end, placing her in place to determine the semifinal match-ups. She selected to face Kentucky’s Linda Mihalec, who she defeated by unanimous choice. On the opposite aspect of the bracket, current title challenger Jessica Delboni earned selections over Invicta newcomers Tabatha Watkins and Marisa Messer-Belenchia on her option to the finals, establishing a rematch of her 2019 cut up choice win over VanZandt.
Within the match last, Delboni used regular strain and heavy strikes to earn a second choice over VanZandt. Simply three weeks faraway from a razor-close choice loss to Zappitella, Delboni will now combat for the Invicta FC atomweight title.
“Zappitella, I see you. I see you subsequent combat, okay?” Delboni mentioned to the champion sitting cageside after the combat.
