Former Invicta atomweight champ Alesha Zappitella moved up to the strawweight division for a shot at another title in the main event of Wednesday night’s Invicta FC 47.
Zappitella took on Emily Ducote to top the seven-fight card, which once again went live from Kansas City, Kansas, streaming on the promotion’s official YouTube channel. Ducote, a former flyweight title challenger in Bellator MMA, had captured Invicta’s strawweight belt in her last fight — a shocking, Knockout of the Year candidate against former UFC fighter Danielle Taylor. That win had no doubt got the attention of the bigger promotions; a third straight win could see her on to something bigger.
Also on Wednesday’s Invicta FC 47 card, Courtney King returned for the first time since a loss to Kayla Harrison, while atomweights Lindsey VanZandt and Jillian DeCoursey faced off.
Full results from Invicta FC 47, which streams live on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 from the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas can be found below. The broadcast gets underway at 8PM ET, and can be viewed in its entirety in the embed provided.
