Perhaps new Invicta FC atomweight champion Jessica Delboni took the results of the first fight with Alesha Zappitella personally.

Delboni (12-3-0), who lost a split-decision to Zappitella last May that many fans thought she won, overcame the ground and grappling game of Zappitella (9-3-0) to leave no doubt this time at Invicta FC 45 Wednesday night at the Police Athletic League in Kansas City.

Delboni put together four rounds of striking to take a 50-45, 50-45, and 49-46 unanimous decision victory in the main event of Invicta FC 45.

Delboni won the Phoenix Series 4 tournament earlier in June to earn the rematch.
