In the night’s co-feature, Lauren Murphy (8-0) claimed Invicta FC’s inaugural bantamweight title with a TKO win over Miriam Nakamoto (2-1). And while the fight lived up to the expectations, the ending came in unfortunate fashion.

Nakamoto’s vaunted muay Thai was on display in the opening frames, but Murphy refused to go away quietly, even bloodying her opponent’s nose in the final seconds of the second frame. But the real damage came in the third.

With Murphy scoring the takedown she had been looking for from the start, Nakamoto’s right knee buckled underneath her, and she immediately grimaced in pain. The round finished there, and Nakamoto limped back to here corner at the bell. While in obvious pain, Nakamoto tried to continue in the fourth, but she fell to the floor with her knee unable to support her own weight, and the bout was waved off 23 seconds into the frame, giving Murphy the title.
