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.
