Invicta FC 17 results: Evinger retains at bantamweight, Hill captures strawweight belt
(mmajunkie.com)
Colleen Schneider was as high as a +400 underdog entering her shot at Tonya Evinger and the bantamweight title at Invicta FC 17. She came up short, but showed enough to suggest she may have deserved a little more respect at the sportsbooks. Schneider (10-7) was game for five rounds against Evinger (18-5) never backing down from her more experienced and accomplished opponent. However, Evinger simply had more tools available as she repeatedly used trip takedowns to grind away for a unanimous decision victory.
