INVICTA FC 4 RESULTS: Carla Esparza Wins Inaugural Invicta Strawweight Title - 1/5/13



Invicta Fighting Championships presented Invicta 4: Esparza vs Hyatt on Saturday, January 5, 2013, at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, KS.

Invicta FC 4 was originally supposed to air as a low-cost iPPV on Ustream, but technical difficulties right out of the gate lead Invicta officials to instead broadcast the event for free, albeit with continued technical difficulties for many trying to watch. The entire event is now available to watch for free at Ustream.tv/InvictaFC.
