Invicta Fighting Championships (Invicta) returned to the Ameristar Casino in Kansas City, Missouri, last night (Dec. 7, 2013) with Invicta 7: "Honchak vs. Smith". The card was originally scheduled to have three title fights, but an illness forced one of the competitors off the card.
The night saw Barb Honchak defend her Invicta Flyweight title in a five round affair against former bantamweight contender, Leslie Smith. Honchak was able to outwork Smith on the ground to earn a well deserved decision victory. Lauren Murphy became the new Invicta Bantamweight champ with a fourth round victory over Miriam Nakamoto.
It was an entertaining night of mixed martial arts (MMA) and another solid event from the promotion that has become home for female competitors.
