“Women’s MMA Today” gets you caught up on the week that was and the week that will be in women’s MMA.

—Weekend Results—

After the Ustream debacle was handled (more on that here), fans were treated to another awesome night of fights at InvictaFC 4. In the main event, Carla “Cookie Monster” Esparza captured the inaugural IFC Strawweight title with a hard-earned unanimous decision over the very game Bec “Rowdy” Hyatt. In the co-main event, Alexis “Ally-Gator” Davis put submission specialist Shayna “Queen of Spades” Baszler to sleep with a rear-naked choke in round three. Davis, who became the first ever fighter to submit Hitomi “Girlfight Monster” Akano in her 28-fight career at IFC 2, becomes the first to hand Basler a submission loss in more than seven years and only the second of her entire 23-fight career.

    There’s a typo. Cassie Rodish fought Frausto, not Cassie Robb.
