At 39 years of age, Deep Jewels veteran Mina Kurobe captured her first MMA title tonight at Deep Jewels 15 in Tokyo, Japan. Kurobe avenged a past loss and defeated Naho “Sugi Rock” Sugiyama in tonight’s main event rematch to become the new Deep Jewels Atomweight Champion.

With her title win tonight, Kurobe has now posted five straight victories since suffering a one-sided decision loss to Sugiyama in the pair’s first meeting at Deep Jewels 10. In tonight’s co-main event, Shizuka Sugiyama made a successful return by edging out prospect Yukari Nabe at 130 pounds.

Former UFC title challenger Sara McMann earned her third straight win in quick and easy fashion tonight at UFC Fight Night 105: “Lewis vs Browne” in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. McMann submitted an overmatched and overweight Gina “Danger” Mazany early in a would-be bantamweight bout.

Tonight’s card also featured a much more competitive women’s bout in the strawweight division, and rising star Randa “Quiet Storm” Markos took a razor-thin Split Decision victory over former UFC champion Carla “Cookie Monster” Esparza after three entertaining rounds of back-and-forth action.

Decorated Muay Thai striker Germaine “The Iron Lady” de Randamie made history with a hard-fought victory tonight at UFC 208 in Brooklyn, New York. De Randamie defeated Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm in the main event to become the inaugural UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion.

Tonight’s competitive title tilt was contested entirely on the feet, and de Randamie’s strong start in the early rounds was marred only by two late punches after the bell. Holm was more aggressive in the final ten minutes, but de Randamie stuffed numerous takedowns and edged out the win.

Press Release –  Invicta Fighting Championships 22 has added five new bouts.

The night’s co-main event will feature atomweight champion Ayaka Hamasaki (14-1) moving up a weight class to take on former strawweight champion Livia Renata Souza (9-1). Hamasaki will enter the contest having won five straight fights, including back-to-back title defenses against Jinh Yu Frey and Amber Brown. Souza will compete for the first time since her Invicta FC 17 battle with Angela Hill.

Also at strawweight, former title challenger DeAnna Bennett (8-2) takes on Jodie Esquibel (5-2). The pair were originally slated to collide at Invicta FC 21, but the bout had to be rescheduled. Bennett will return for the first time since Invicta FC 16, where she engaged in a back-and-forth battle with veteran Roxanne Modafferi. Esquibel headlined Invicta FC 18 in July against Mexico’s Alexa Grasso.

Recent atomweight title challenger Jinh Yu Frey (5-2) battles undefeated Brazilian newcomer Janaisa Morandin (9-0). Frey came up short in her quest for gold at Invicta FC 19 after doctors stopped her bout due to a cut. Morandin has reeled off nine straight wins in her home country, including five by way of strikes.

Finally, two additional strawweight match-ups are slated for the event. Iceland’s Sunna Rannveig Davidsdottir (1-0), fresh off her decision win over Ashley Greenway at Invicta FC 19, welcomes newcomer Mallory Martin (1-0) to the Invicta cage, while unbeaten Kal Holliday (1-0) looks to build off her submission victory over Tiffany Van Soest when she takes on 19-year-old sensation Miranda Maverick (1-0).

The bouts join the previously announced bantamweight title rematch between champion Tonya Evinger (18-5, 1 NC) and Russian challenger Yana Kunitskaya (9-2, 1 NC).

The event takes place Saturday, March 25 from the historic Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo. The event streams live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass at 8pm ET.

The current Invicta FC 22 fight card:
Bantamweight Title: Tonya Evinger (18-5, 1 NC) vs Yana Kunitskaya (9-2, 1 NC)
Strawweight: Ayaka Hamasaki (14-1) vs Livia Renata Souza (9-1)
Strawweight: DeAnna Bennett (8-2) vs Jodie Esquibel (5-2)

Veteran strawweight contender Felice “Lil’ Bulldog” Herrig picked up the biggest victory of her mixed martial arts career tonight at UFC Fight Night 104: “Bermudez vs Korean Zombie” in Houston, Texas. Herrig defeated fellow striker Alexa Grasso in the featured 115-pound co-main event.

In other strawweight action on tonight’s UFC card, Jéssica “Bate Estaca” Andrade set up a future UFC title shot by defeating Invicta FC champion Angela “Overkill” Hill. In preliminary card action, Tecia “The Tiny Tornado” Torres defeated rival “Rowdy” Bec Rawlings for the second time.
