Invicta FC 11: Cyborg vs. Tweet

In the main event of Invicta FC 11, Cristiane Justino took on Charmaine Tweet for her first title defense as the promotion’s inaugural featherweight champion. Justino won the vacant title in July 2013 when she beat former Strikeforce champion Marloes Coenen.

Tweet attacked with punches first, which Justino avoided and countered, landing punches which set Tweet back. Tweet never appeared to land anything as she spent most of the fight on the defensive. A kick by Tweet was quickly caught, set her off-balance and to the ground. Justino capitalized from the top, landing more punches, bloodying Tweet’s nose which was also broken. Justino allowed her to stand back up, more punches to the face and body which earned a referee stoppage by way of technical knockout.

It took this long for Justino to defend the title, because, in addition to competing in kick-boxing bouts in Lion Fights, Justino had been at work trying to cut weight for a possible fight against UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Invicta’s president Shannon Knapp announced at Invicta 9 that a left ankle injury would delay Justino’s bantamweight debut set for Invicta 10 last December.
