Strawweight prospect “Dynamite” Danielle Taylor picked up the biggest victory of her career tonight at UFC Fight Night 108: “Swanson vs Lobov” in Nashville, Tennessee. Taylor edged out former Invicta FC champion Jessica Penne in a closely-contested matchup on the preliminary card.

Also on tonight’s card, former UFC women’s bantamweight title challenger Alexis “Ally-Gator” Davis got back on the winning track with a narrow decision victory over grappling specialist Cindy “Battlecat” Dandois, who made her Octagon debut following a successful stint with Invicta FC.

Pam Sorenson vs Jessica Rose Clark

Press Release –  As revealed by Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp on Invicta FC All-Access, two new match-ups have joined the fight card for Invicta Fighting Championships 23.

Joining the previously announced main event between former flyweight title challenger Vanessa Porto (18-7) and undefeated Agnieszka Niedźwiedź (9-0) of Poland will be a featherweight contest between Brazil’s Ediane “India” Gomes (10-4) and Pam “Bam” Sorenson (5-1), as well as a bantamweight affair featuring newcomers Shaianna “Yaya” Rincon (0-0) and Brooksie “The Bear” Bayard (1-1).

Gomes will be making her fifth appearance in the Invicta cage. She’ll return to 145 pounds for the first time since 2013 after two fights at bantamweight. The Brazilian has faced many of the sport’s biggest names including current Invicta champion Tonya Evinger, current UFC champion Amanda Nunes and former champion Ronda Rousey.

Minnesota’s Sorenson will compete for the second time under the Invicta banner. She claimed a split decision win over Australia’s Jessy Rose-Clark at Invicta FC 20 last November.

The 23-year-old Rincon will be making her professional debut at the event. Hailing from California, the MMA Gold fighter compiled a perfect 4-0 record as an amateur.

Bayard enters the event having split her two professional outings. The Louisiana native, who now trains in California, is coming off a first-round submission win in her most recent bout.

The event takes place Saturday, May 20, from the historic Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo. It streams live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass at 8pm ET.

Waterson survived a head-kick knockdown early in the second round, but Namajunas was relentless on the ground and she ultimately finished her foe with a rear-naked choke. In bantamweight action, Ketlen “Fenomeno” Vieira kept her unbeaten record intact with a victory over Ashlee Evans-Smith.

Competing for the second time in a five-week span, strawweight rising star Cynthia Calvillo earned another big victory tonight at UFC 210: “Cormier vs Johnson 2” in Brooklyn, New York. Calvillo submitted Pearl Gonzalez in the third round of a featured matchup on tonight’s pay-per-view main card.

Calvillo, who won her Octagon debut at UFC 209 this past month, impressed onlookers with her slick ground game en route to victory tonight. Earlier on the card, Katlyn “Blonde Fighter” Chookagian narrowly edged out Mexican standout Irene Aldana in a closely-contested bantamweight showdown.
