The Missouri Office of Athletics today overturned Jessamyn Duke's loss at Invicta FC 5, changing the result of her bout against Miriam Nakamoto to a no contest.

Nakamoto originally was ruled the winner by way of knockout, but after an investigation, the commission ruled an illegal knee warranted the overturning of the official result, according to a copy of the decision obtained today by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The fight took place April 5 at Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Mo., and streamed live via online pay-per-view.

Nice. Glad to see it overturned.

I don't agree the first knee had her down and from what I remember it was pretty close and looked like she was letting up. but this is from memory.

Oh well Nakamoto is still a beast really like her as...style her style.

The first knee did the majority of the damage, but its hard to argue that the 2nd knee had no effect. Who knows if Duke could have survived without the 2nd shot, which was clearly illegal.
