Jessica Delboni leaves no doubt


The first time Jessica Delboni fought Alesha Zappitella, she came away disappointed in a split decision loss trying to win the atomweight title from Invicta FC.

But in the rematch earlier this week, she left no doubt. Delboni (12-3) outplayed Zappitella (9-3) in the Invicta FC 45 main event, which aired live on MMA Junkie, and won the 105-pound title with a unanimous decision. She had a pair of 50-45 sweeps from the judges’ scorecards, plus a 49-46.

Following her loss to Zappitella when they first met in May 2021, Delboni handed in her ticket to a title when she won the Invicta Atomic Weight Tournament.
