It was another great night of Team Cesar Gracie. Leslie "The Peacemaker" Smith had just defeated Raquel Pennington in a grudge matche of sorts by putting on a trademark Diazesque performance filled with taunting and high level striking. Next up was Alexis Davis, who would be given the opportunity to avenge the loss she suffered against Shayna Baszler back in 2010. Davis would choke the tough as nails Baszler unconscious and collect an extra $1,500 for her fight of the night performance. Not only does Davis now leapfrog Baszler in the Bantamweight rankings due to this finish, she may have scored herself another chance to avenge a high profile loss. Sarah Kaufman will grace the Invicta cage for the first time this April, and Alexis Davis may very well be the fighter standing across from her after the ink dries.  KO of the night honors went to Veronica Rothenhausler who lived up to all of the hype in her Invicta debut. It took "The Heartbreaker" just over a minute to find the sweet spot of of Katalina Malungahu and she's $1.000 richer for it.  An extra $1,000 was also awarded to Pat Barry's main squeeze Rose Namajunas who took home submission of the night honors. Namajunas spent the duration of the fight trying to finish off Jackson's MMA prodcut Emily Kagan and was finally rewarded for her relentlessness when she sunk in a rear naked choke with just over a minute remaining in the contest.
