Leah Letson earned her fourth professional victory in style Saturday night, in Kansas City, Mo. Letson landed a beautiful head kick at Invicta 21 against Liz Phillips while streaming live on UFC Fight Pass.

The Wisconsin native won the biggest bout of her career at Invicta 21, after agreeing to the fight on three-days notice. Letson received the phone call late Tuesday evening to battle the former UFC fighter, Elizabeth Phillips.

Letson (4-1) looked sharp in her Invicta debut, as the Pura Vida BJJ/MMA fighter found her range early when connecting with her jab. After suffering a powerful overhand strike from Phillips, Letson faked a right handed strike following it up with a left high head kick. 

The kick dropped Phillips (5-5) to her back on the canvas. Letson pounced on Phillips immediately delivering six vicious head strikes before the referee jumped in the middle waving his hand signaling end of the contest. 

Letson signed a multiple fight contract with Invicta FC, but her big Knockout finish cemented her within the Organization.
