Invicta FC 45 will usher the MMA community in to 2022 with an anticipated Rematch between Atomweight champion Alesha Zappitella and Jessica Delboni on January 12th at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas.
Zappitella (8-2) will be defending the title for the second time since submitting Ashley Cummins in the fourth back in September 2020 to win the Vacant title. Zippitella defeated Delboni with a five round split decision in her last outing and will be looking to finally close the chapter with a decisive victory.
Delboni (11-3) has since gone past the loss to Zippitella, picking up a unanimous decision victory over Lindsey VanZandt at at Invicta FC: Phoenix Series 4. The victory placed her back in pole position for the Atomweight title.
Reclaiming the spot as No.1 contender at 105 pounds wasn’t an easy task as Delboni had to win three fights in one night to reclaim the spot. Delboni edged Vanzandt after three rounds and will now look to make right her mistakes in the first meeting with Zippitella.
