Did you miss the debut of the Invicta Fighting Championships promotion this past weekend?

Well you're in luck, because the all-female fight league is putting its fights up for free on its YouTube channel. They've started with the main event between Marloes Coenen and Romy Ruyssen and are currently working their way down the fight card.

If things keep up, that means the barnburner of a bout between Kaitlin Young and Leslie Smith which won "Fight of the Night" will be next in line. In the meantime, enjoy the top three bouts from the evening and keep your fingers crossed that there are more to come.

After the jump, we've got the first three big fights from the evening, with the standout being the co-main event between atomweights (105 pounds) Jessica Penne and Lisa Ellis, which featured a very fun technical scrap that got violent in a hurry.
