With the first championship fight of the night, Jennifer Maia won the interim Flyweight belt against Vanessa Porto via unanimous decision. Ayaka Hamasaki defended her Atomweight title with an armbar over Amber Brown at 2:52 of round 3. Other notable winners at Invicta FC 16 included Roxanne Modafferi, Irene Aldana and Jinh Yu Frey. 

The final major event of the weekend was WSOF 29. Middleweight Louis Taylor made quick work of Cory Devela with a guillotine coming at just :29 of round 1. In a Heavyweight contest, Josh Copeland got past Mike Hayes by way of unanimous decision. And in the main event top ranked Lightweight Justin Gaethje defended his belt yet again with an impressive TKO win over veteran Brian Foster. The stoppage came after several unanswered kicks to the knee dropped Foster.
