Invicta FC 54 results: Danni McCormack retains title by technical submission, calls to UFC’s Mick Maynard

Invicta FC 54 took place Friday evening and you can watch a replay of the full event on MMA Junkie.

The five-fight event at Citizens House of Blues in Boston featured a strawweight title fight at the top of the bill. Champion Danni McCormack out of SBG Ireland put her belt on the line for the first time against Karolina Wojcik. The belt will return to Ireland after McCormack won by technical submission at 1:22 of Round 4.

McCormack (8-2 MMA, 3-0 INVICTA) brought the fight to Wojcik (11-4 MMA, 2-2 INVICTA) from the start, making it rough in the clinch. Wojcik found a home for a few counters, but dealing with constant pressure from the champion made things tough.

In the fourth round, McCormack found her way to Wojcik’s back within the first minute. She secured the position and snuck in a rear-naked choke. Wojcik couldn’t escape as the squeeze got tighter and higher. The referee checked the arm of Wojcik and there was no response. McCormack secured her first title defense by technical submission as Wojcik went completely out from the choke in her first stoppage loss.

During her post-fight interview, McCormack called to a particular UFC matchmaker.

“Mick Maynard, you said you wanted a finish, so there you go,” McCormack said. “That’s the third one on my record. Number three. So, let me know what you think about that one.”

McCormack won the strawweight title in March by defeating Valesca Machado by unanimous decision at Invicta FC 52. Wojcik earned a title shot following a split decision win over Ediana Silva at the same event.

The co-feature was a flyweight bout between Kristina Williams (7-4 MMA, 3-1 INVICTA) and Dee Begley (4-3 MMA, 0-1 INVICTA). After 15 minutes, the judges were split in their decision, but Williams’ work in the striking game with punching blitzes and excellent kicks convinced two judges she did enough for the win.
