Saturday night in Costa Mesa, CA at the OC Hangar Invicta sold out the arena with 1,504 packed into the hangar. For the first time going to an invicta fight we didn’t know what to expect from this venue, we noticed that the set up wasn’t too bad according to many the media set up was better so, for our first show that was a good thing.
On this card which was head lined by Cris “Cyborg” Justino defending her Invicta title was not the only title that was on the line this night the Co Main Event was Livia Renata Souza taking on DeAnna Bennett. The interesting storyline that came from that co main event was that Souza was the first outsider to win the Invicta Straw Weight Championship and defend it since Carla Esparza left Invicta slamming that revolving door at the straw weight division (At Least for now) hitting DeAnne Bennett with a liver kick that sent her crashing to the mat where Souza was able to jump on her to finish the fight.
Next up, was the main event that was headlined by Cris “Cyborg” Justino vs Daria Ibragimova. On paper you would think that Daria might have a chance against Cris but, see some times regardless of who you are there is just that one superior athlete which Daria Ibragimova is not! Daria came out looking for a single leg, holding on to it as if it was the last chicken leg from Thanksgiving dinner and your fighting over who gets that last one so you just hold on until someone lets go. Similar happened in this fight that ultimately saw Cris Cyborg continue to just pepper Daria was relentless shots that Daria just couldn’t handle. Something that is a cool moment was when Cris came out that OC Hangar went crazy.
