In stunning fashion, Invicta Fighting Championships crowned a new atomweight champion on December 5th when grappling ace Hérica Tibúrcio submitted Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson to win the title at Invicta FC 10. Tibúrcio vaults into the top spot in the 105-pound women’s rankings.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship also crowned a new titleholder this past month when Carla “Cookie Monster” Esparza became the inaugural UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion at the TUF 20 Finale. One day later, top contender Joanna JÄ™drzejczyk edged out Claudia “Claudinha” Gadelha.
