INVICTA FC 11 Event Recap: Cyborg & Grasso Win Big


“Invicta FC 11” saw an action packed night of fights take place live from Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California! There was a total of four stoppages and it was a shame the card aired on UFC Fight Pass because it was an event that even a casual mixed martial arts fan would have enjoyed.

Alexa Grasso vs. Mizuki Inoue
Alexa Grasso def. Mizuki Inoue by way of Unanimous Decision

Mizuki took a serious beating in the first two rounds and it looked like she was well on her way to a decision loss. Grasso outstruck her in the first round and when Mizuki walked back to her corner you could see her face was cut up in several locations. Mizuki tried to rally back in the second, but she found herself almost getting submitted. Grasso trapped her in a triangle and attempted to put Mizuki away with a kimura, but the hold was not locked in and Mizuki was able to make it to the third.

Mizuki took the third round and she gained full mount a couple times, but she was not able to do anything with it and Grasso won by way of unanimous decision.
