Known fighters returned with sensational performances, a new champion was crowned and a controversial figure returned to dominance. It's time to separate the good from the bad, the winners from the losers and the signal from the noise...
Jessamyn Duke appeals controversial Invicta FC 5 KO loss to Miriam Nakamoto
Jessamyn Duke thought at the time she might be getting the short end of the stick, but she wasn't quite sure.

It wasn't until later, in the back after the knockout loss, that she and her team were sure they had a pretty good reason to be upset at how things went down...
