Invicta FC 26 took place on December 8th from Kansas City, Missouri. In the night’s Main Event Jennifer Maia retained her Flyweight Title winning a unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Agnieszka Niedwiedz. The majority of the bout was spent in the clinch, with both fighters having their moments, same as when the fighters were separated. In the end, the judges liked what they saw out of Maia a bit more. In the Co-Main Event, Mackenzie Dern remained unbeaten turning back her biggest challenge to date in Kaline Medeiros. Dern wasn’t as fluid with her stand-up, but landed the harder shots before securing the armbar in the closing seconds. Here are all your results and our Of The Night Awards.
